When Melbourne punks Press Club released their debut album Late Teens, it was received as a cacophonous battle-cry, resonating with fans far beyond their native Australia. Marked out as a band to keep an eye out for very early on, their music was singled out for its honesty and integrity, and the band praised for their social awareness, calls for self-improvement and powerhouse live performances. Today, the band announce their anticipated follow-up album, Wasted Energy, along with new single Thinking About You.

Press Club’s sonic calling cards are all present on Wasted Energy; the fuzz-addled, kicked-in speaker bass of Iain MacRae, the thick guitar tones of Greg Rietwyk, the merciless drumming of Frank Lees, and the emotionally charged vocal deliverance of Natalie Foster. On new single Thinking About You, amongst the climactic clatter of the band giving it everything, is Foster recounting her experience with a stalker. Never one to shy away from what is uncomfortable, the song embodies a freak’s tongue, cooing unbridled down the phone line; abrupt, uninvited, and out of the blue.

In contrast to Late Teens, lyrically, Wasted Energy approaches the microphone through a lens of extrospection. It examines the negative behaviours in the world around us and how we’re all learning to exist in today’s ever-evolving socio-moral landscape. Wasted Energy is broadly about change, and life’s watershed moments that change its course. These shifts are laterally represented lyrically and sonically in many of its songs. Sweeping about-faces and musical departures are an expansion of the musical fibre that make up the Press Club repertoire.

PRESS CLUB präsentieren ein neues Musikvideo zur Lead-Single "Thinking About You". In dem Track verarbeitet Sängerin NATALIE FOSTER ihre Erfahrungen mit einem Stalker. Das dazugehörige Video greift diese Thematik auf:

Musikvideo - "Thinking About You"

Gitarrist GREG RIETWYK kommentiert den Entstehungsprozess:
"The idea for the Thinking About You video clip came to me as we touched down from a 20 plus hour transit home from our first European tour in May this year. I pictured a surreal retelling of the story of a stalking stranger that is told within the song lyrics, with Nat being tormented by masked freaks. We enlisted the help of our good friend and filmmaker Gina Somfleth from Popcandi productions. We are all massive fans of Gina's keen eye for cinematography.
The entire clip was shot on location at Nat's parents farm outside of Ballarat in North Western Victoria. We particularly enjoyed being able to feed our inner pyromaniacs in what was to become the climax of the film. We've thrown a few DIY festivals at the farm where it was shot so the location holds a special place in our collective hearts."

Der Song entstammt dem zweiten Studioalbum "Wasted Energy", das am 16.08. auf Hassle Records erscheint. Nach einer ausgedehnten UK-Tour, mit Auftritten auf dem Reading- und Leeds-Festival, spielen die Australier auch diverse Konzerte auf dem europäischen Festland. Neben dem Reeperbahn Festival stehen zusätzlich vier Headline-Shows in Deutschland an:
