Leavings

Leavings is a three piece punk band from Brisbane,taking cues from post-hardcore, indie rock, shoegaze, krautrock, and the vibrant DIY cultures of Australia, China, and South-East Asia.

Combining driving, aggressive bass and drums, shouted vocals, and wiry guitar with catchy, muscular looks and cavernous noise and drone-scapes, the group's songs generate a bold, vigorous energy that is both affirming and cathartic.

 

Sell & Shark is Leavings' debut release and the first single from their forthcoming LP. The songs represent the band's response to the frustration of living in an Australia whose leaders become nastier and more cynical with each passing year. "Sell" is defiantly spirited while "Shark" is the band at their grumpiest, but not without a sense of humour. Both tracks were recorded in Brisbane at Tym Guitars with Donovan Miller (FOREVR, No Anchor) over one weekend in the winter of 2016.
