Smarts – Cling Wrap

Good old punk never dies. Just ask Smarts, an Aussie band comprised of members ofย Ausmuteants,ย Parsnipย andย The Living Eyes. Mid-October, theyโ€™ll launch their debut album Who Needs Smarts Anyway? Good question, in the best punk tradition.

The long-player, recorded in just one weekend, contains 13 tracks. Four of those are re-recorded versions of the tracks on the bandโ€™s 2018 EP Smart World, which was recorded by the bandโ€™s Billy Gardner (bass, vocals) and Mitch Campleman (guitar). Since then, drummer Jake Robertson, synth player Sally Buckley and saxophonist Stella Rennex were added to the line-up.

A saxophonist? Yes, thatโ€™s right. Smarts deliver fast-paced, sax-fuelled punk. That already sounds wicked on paper, so wait โ€˜til you hear the music for yourself. Cling Wrap is the bandโ€™s new single. A raucous, playful, tight, thrilling, dynamic adrenaline rush, which clocks in at just under 2 minutes. Just like a good punk song should.
