Premiere: Perth favourites Flossy soar with new single and video, Being Alone
Teetering on the edge of a national break-out, the adored two-piece - now trio - will showcase at BIGSOUND this September.
If you're at all familiar with the explosion of dynamic pop-rock happening on the west coast at the moment, chances are you already count Flossy amongst your favourite bands. Over the last two years (specifically the last twelve months in particular), the two-piece have blossomed into one of Perth's most adored names, with a consistent run of singles (capped with their self-titled debut EP in 2018, then Holiday as their first track for 2019) positioning them as one of our strongest bands, teetering on the edge of a Doogs/Spacey Jane-esque east-coast break-out. It's seemingly not too far away either; they've supported everyone from DZ Deathrays to Gyroscope while performing at festivals like Perth institution SOTA Festival and Brisbane's BIGSOUND - where they'll showcase amongst one of the strongest contingents West Australian music has to offer.
Not taking the brakes off anytime soon, the pairing - now a trio, joined by new drummer, Charlie Smith - are today sharing a new single/video titled Being Alone, which sees them distance themselves from this alt-rock/indie fusion they've blossomed through in the past with something a little more hook-driven and pop-esque. It's a bright new sound that feels like them exploring - and triumphing - with something new, and it comes with a change in mind-set from the sister-fronted duo, who explains the track's creation a touch further. "We kind of always write angry songs and without realizing this positive pro-self-care song came into existence, we were like oh yeah, it's not angsty," says Sinead, before Lauren further explains the track's meaning. "Being Alone is a celebration of independence. Sometimes you can lose yourself in someone else, so it’s important to learn to be strong on your own."
Being Alone also arrives alongside the official video clip for the track, which showcases their energy as a live outfit while channelling the beauty in taking a minute to yourself after hardship - something that often comes with the celebration of independence after separating with someone. "We wanted the video to reflect the beauty in learning to be on your own when you've just had a break up and you're taking steps to look after yourself. It's about finding enjoyment in self care," says Sinead, before Lauren elaborates. "The video was so much fun to shoot. Many laughs. Especially when Sinead broke one of her bed slats from jumping on the bed too hard."
Check out the clip below, then catch them launch the single at Lucy's Love Shack on Friday, August 30th, supported by Moth, Tether and The Love Junkies DJs.
