Super Best Friends came to the attention of the masses in 2013 with the release of their single ‘Round and Round’, which featured cameo appearances from most of parliament house including Kevin Rudd, Tony Abbot, and Clive Palmer. Their debut album ‘Status Updates’ was released in early 2015 on Gun Fever Records and features songs about friends, social media addiction and the state of Australian politics. Their live shows perfectly demonstrate their level of energy and rage that makes these songs all the more powerful.

Weak Boys
Recorded and Mixed by Harvey O’Sullivan
Mastered by Andrew Edgson
Recorded at Oxford Art Factory, Sydney, 30th of January, 2015.

Weak boys are a group of 30 something year olds who like to sing about your everyday life and the problems we all face like landlords, hangovers, and running out of wine. Their members Matt Banham, Craig Lyons, and Chris Yates have all played in other memorable bands over the years including Dollar Bar, No Through Road, and Little Lovers, which make them a super group of sorts. Their songs are a flawless mixture of bright jangly guitar pop, with subtle glum undertones that feel like the soundtrack to a Sunday afternoon after a big weekend.
