These New South Whales
Australia’s These New South Whales are many things: a band, a TV show, an experience, a phenomenon. Taking influence from punk, metal, new wave, and goth, the foursome formed in 2011 earning an early reputation in Sydney’s underground punk scene as an obscenely compelling act. Live, they wore nipple tape and coughed up sonic hell-scapes with deeply-pitched vocals, jarring loops, and screaming guitars. All against a backdrop of smoke machines and hammering strobe lights.
