Amyl and the Sniffers
Head-spinning australian punk
Amyl and the Sniffers lose no time: a day after they recorded music for the first time, their first EP was online. That no-nonsense attitude you can hear in their sound: lightning fast, raw and messy.
In short: seventies punk pur sang, but with a dose of Die Antwoord and New Kids Turbo. In 2018, the Australian foursome was towed by psych-heroes King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard: together they toured the United States for a month. Then the punks in Europe proved that they can also stand on their own feet. “Beer in your face, pounding in the pit, kick in the cross, finished with a wink and a kiss”, wrote 3VOOR12 last summer about their performance at Lowlands.
“Singer Amy Taylor pours whisky down the throats of the front row, sings about 70s snacks, losers and balaclavas, and needles her crowd with an assortment of insults and provocations.” – The Guardian
