The road to Stella Donnelly's long-awaited debut album Beware of the Dogs has been a long one, but it's been one full of releases. There was Old Man, a tender take-down centred around the #MeToo movement ("It was a very strange feeling for me watching the world change right before my eyes and to see that these men who had exploited their power for so long were actually being held accountable for their actions," she says of the release), followed by Lunch, an textured display of Donnelly's charm written the night before she left for a long stint of touring ("I wrote this about the feeling of displacement I get when I go on tour and come back and nothing feels the same.") Together, they've highlighted Stella Donnelly's brilliance and everything it encompasses - whether it be her knack at writing emotive pieces of shimmering indie-pop or her powerful, tall-standing ability to write and sing about topics many don't venture into. 

Beware of the Dogs, arriving via Secretly Canadian on March 8th, is set to feature much, much more of Donnelly's well-recognised brilliance, seeing the Perth songwriting step into the driver's seat for an intimate reflection of her life - the next taste of which arriving today through Tricks. Arriving alongside a video directed by Julia Jacklin and Nick McKk, Tricks is a moment a little more upbeat and simplistic in comparison to her work thus far, with a quirky bass guitar melody acting as the backbone of the single, with sun-soaked guitar melodies and an uplifting vocal from Donnelly swirling around over the top. "This song is a playful zoom-in on the ‘Australian Identity’ and a loose dig at the morons that used to yell sh*t at me when I played cover gigs on Sunday afternoons," she says, before joking "It probably served me right for singing Wonderwall every weekend."

It's a brilliant single that highlights everything we've come to love from Stella, and with only one week (and a day) to go until Beware of the Dogs, we're incredibly excited to see how the rest of the record turns out. Pre-order it HERE.
