Premiere: Listen to Caught Me At A Bad Time, a pure 90s rock blast from Perth's The Limbs

They launch it this Friday at The Sewing Room.

The Limbs are a Perth-based alt/indie-rock group who are ready to get shit done following a few different lineup changes over the past few years. In amidst those they had a string of excellent releases and big shows, and they're definitely onto a winner with new single Caught Me At A Bad Time. While the 90s rock influences are present, nothing about this feels dated, with soaring choruses, ripping guitars and rumbling drums combining for something instantly infectious.

Take a listen and get to know 'em a little better below, and catch 'em live this Friday at The Sewing Room when they launch Caught Me At A Bad Time with support from Moth, Joys and Big Orange.

Tell us about yourselves?

We’ve been playing for a while as a three piece, but recently added a fourth member to widen the sound. We like long walks on the beach, riding horses, tennis, and on Fridays a nice pina colada with the girls.

What kinda tunes we talkin’?

Our music is a big mashup of past experiences, fights between members, the mundanity of work life, the endless questioning of existence and destroying the ego in order to save ourselves from the pitfalls of bitterness and anger. We love The Pixies, BRMC, Sonic Youth, Blur, You Am I and The Beach Boys and the music has crusty punk edges, a shoegaze interior, with gentle strokes of 90s alternative rock and classic pop furnishing…

Production/writing process:

Our new EP was a nightmare from start to finish. We wrote it, which is always the fun part, and then we recorded the drums with our main man Andy Lawson and but then we lost our drummer and simultaneously we ran out of money. After a long search we had a new drummer, played a bunch more shows, filled up the band kitty and went back into the studio with our main man Andy Lawson where Michael Hay and I got all ‘Lennon and McCartney’ and made what we think, is a really great record. I write the initial songs, then we all bang our heads against a wall for months trying to make it a life changing experience. All in all a good time!

Can you tell us about your new single, Caught Me At A Bad Time?

This song is about getting over a break up. Using hindsight to realize you weren’t really ready for it or mature enough to understand you probably weren’t right for each other in the first place. It tries to capture that moment when you have that epiphany and with it there is a release that affirms life and everything in it. It’s off our soon-to-be-released new EP!

Any shows coming up?

We're launching the single this Friday 3 August at The Sewing Room (more info HERE).

What’s the rest of the year have in store?

We’re planning in a few shows around WA for later in the year and are looking at launching the new EP into the new year with some follow up shows around the east coast.

Where can we hear more of your music?

Spotify, Deezer, Amazon, Google Play. Bandcamp, Soundcloud.
