Iain MacRae, Greg Rietwyk, Frank Lees, and Natalie Foster are the force behind the fabulous project PRESS CLUB. On August 16th their latest album ‘Wasted Energy’ will drop and should be a glorious day.
‘Thinking About You’ continues PRESS CLUB’s effervescent and rockin’ cross over for our deeply seeded love for music and innovation.
From NME, to DIY, and so forth, the Melbourne based band has the quality of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and thrusts their musical hips all around like there’s no tomorrow (like Blondie would?). The pointy and aggressive singles kick you in butt, and you just love it.
Yes. Love it.
You heard right.
The anchor of the band starts with Natalie’s vocal acumen, then it is bolstered by the individually talented sounds of all of the bandmates. Encrusted in the punk thoroughfare that is endemic and infectious, we are thrown in the arms of the 90’s but always swimming in the goodness and beauty of PRESS CLUB.
