Brisbane’s masters of teen microdrama The Goon Sax announce national album launch dates for their debut album Up To Anything. The record is released on vinyl, CD and digital on Friday March 11, 2016 – but if you can’t wait til then, you’ll be able to pre-order the album from this Friday!
Louis, Riley and James are all 17-18 years old. They make pop music. They love the Pastels, Talking Heads, Galaxie 500, Bob Dylan and Arthur Russell. On Up To Anything they pull off the almost impossible, capturing the awkwardness, self-doubt and excitement of teenage life, while still in the thick of actually living it.
The band formed around high school friends James and Louis in 2013. Riley joined in early 2014 after a month of drum lessons, and the band played their first show a few months later. They’ve gone on to play with the likes of US Girls, Twerps and Blank Realm, and played Brisbane Laneway Festival earlier this month.
