Ash Phoenix – ‘Bye Bye Bicycle’ (mp3)
You’d be forgiven for thinking you were looking at an Incubus promo photo circa Fungus Amongus… dude, check out those dreads!
But in actual fact it’s Ash Phoenix, a band who are slowly but surely generating a bit of a buzz for themselves around the Sydney alternative scene thanks for some fiery, energetic live shows and supports with the like of current Triple J darlings, Dead Letter Circus.
‘Bye Bye Bicycle’ (slightly dubious title, but each to their own) is the first single from their forthcoming EP. Rhythmic chords ride the beat while Roddy Bottum-esque keys lines carry the melody underneath, before the soaring chorus kicks in with Tyrone unleashing a surprisingly confident voice (because usually “singers” in alternative bands are just crap).
They’re playing September 14 at the Annandale Hotel in Sydney – you’ve got a while to wait, but in the meantime stop washing your hair so you can fit in at their next show.
