Listen: THESE NEW SOUTH WHALES – ‘MUMMA’S TIT’

thesenewsouthwalescover

These New South Whales are a Newcastle-bred, Sydney-based group of punks that like churning out throbbing grot-rock with a distinct obnoxious streak. ‘Mumma’s Tit’ is a big fuck-you to the haters who may or may not exist but it can apply to any shithead that rubs you the wrong away.

The song is short, fast and furious with a set of piercing vocals carrying lyrics that will probably make you chortle at first; then the drums and bass kick in – these guys have some chops. Their presser emphasises a certain satirical nature to their approach to music and, indeed, these guys seem like they are having a lot of fun. This music isn’t for everyone, but their Soundcloud is littered with gems that will get most punks nodding.

These New South Whales will thumb their noses at anyone looking and that is part of the appeal – my only worry is that their brand of noise lacks growth potential if the immaturity remains a key factor. Making shock music is cool at first, but over time it loses substance to the ear. Maybe more sincere aggression and less fart-arsing will give them more impact – still, ‘Mumma’s Tit’ is a good bit of fun.
