AMYL & The SNIFFERS – ” Guided By Angels “

Posted: July 8, 2021 in MUSIC
The first taste of a new Amyl & The Sniffers album is here!

Aussie punk outfit Amyl & the Sniffers have dropped a huge new tune today – leading the first new music for the band’s upcoming album, “Comfort To Me“.

Guided By Angels” is a frenetic power jam filled with the typical Sniffers affair of loud, loud, and more loud – with vocalist Amy Taylor thrashing out in front.

The new album, conceived while the band were quarantining together, sees a new direction for Taylor and her lyricism“The nihilistic, live in the moment, positivity and panel beater rock-meets-shed show punk was still there, but it was better,” she says. “The whole thing was less spontaneous and more darkly considered. The amount of time and thought I put into the lyrics for this album is completely different from the EPs, and even the first record.”

Taylor continues, “Half of the lyrics were written during the Australian bushfire season, when we were already wearing masks to protect ourselves from the smoke in the air. And then when the pandemic hit, our options were the same as everyone: go find a day job and work in intense conditions or sit at home and drown in introspection. I fell into the latter category. I had all this energy inside of me and nowhere to put it, because I couldn’t perform, and it had a hectic effect on my brain. My brain evolved and warped and my way of thinking about the world completely changed.”

The video for Guided By Angels sees the band rolling around Melbourne and getting up to all sorts of nonsense. 

The new track and album announce come off the heels of the group being confirmed for various festivals, the virtual iteration of the annual Splendour In The Grass festival. They’ll play alongside the likes of The Killers, Chvrches, Denzel Curry and stacks more.

“Comfort To Me” is slated for release 10th September.
