Tassie punks Luca Brasi release cracking third single from their new LP
An instant classic from our favourite Tasmanian rockers' upcoming long player.
You’d be hard pressed to think of a band that has worked harder than Tassie’s Luca Brasi over the past year. The four-piece from St Helens toured relentlessly, released a split with the UK’s Apologies I Have None and even curated their own Tasmanian music festival, but somehow still found the time to write and record what could very well be one of 2016’s best punk albums. Luca Brasi’s third LP, If This Is All We’re Going To Be, is due for release on April 29th and the first three singles we’ve heard have us chomping at the bit to hear it in full.
Our newest taste of is the feel-good gem Anything Near Conviction. Frontman Tyler Richardson describes this tune as: “The song that centres around giving yourself a kick in the arse to do better in life and for those you love. A not-so-gentle reminder that you gotta give everything you can.” Anything Near Conviction kicks off with a meandering, melodic guitar line that grabs you from the outset, while Richardson’s stirring vocals gradually swell to drive the chorus home in a big way. This is Australian punk at its very finest and if Anything Near Conviction is something to go by; If This Is All We’re Going To Be is sure to be one of our favourite punk albums this year.
