Brisbane four-piece Beddy Rays have dropped their new banger, Sort It Out. To celebrate the release, the band have shared with MILKY five things they need to sort out!
“The bones of the song were written really quickly. I was in my room on my guitar and it came together in about 10 minutes. I pretty much wrote how I was feeling at the time, finding it hard to reach out and talk to people. Basically thinking I could figure out everything that was going on in my head alone. Sometimes you just don’t want help because you don’t want sympathy from your mates, you just want to sort it out... pun intended haha.” frontman Jacko Van Issum shares.
Drummer Benjamin Wade adds of the visual, “We wanted the music video to capture the energy of our live shows. For our fans that couldn’t make it to our last tour, this is an insight into what it feels like to be at a Beddys gig! Fun, loud, and something best shared with good mates.”
FIRST THING WE NEED TO SORT OUT IS JACKO’S SUPERSTITIONS
It all started when he bought a new guitar lead. This guitar lead was red on one end and blue on the other end. He worked out in his head that the blue end needed to be plugged into his guitar, and the red end into his pedal board. If the lead wasn’t in this configuration, he physically wouldn’t be able to play the show until he fixed the issue! Bloody hell Jacko! Sort it out mate!
SECOND THING WE NEED TO SORT OUT IS BRAD’S ADDICTION TO POKÉMON
At any given moment, Brad is dual wielding a pair of Gameboys, knee deep in a battle against the elite four. Gotta give it to him but, he’s a grinder! Honestly reckon he’d be the Pokémon champ of South East Queensland!
THIRD THING WE NEED TO SORT OUT IS LEWY’S BALD HEAD
It’s almost like all the hair fell off his head and landed on his body?! We’ve given him the nickname “Silverback Mac” as his back hair is reminiscent of a silverback gorilla! He seems to be pretty proud of it though, maybe we can auction his back hair off when we get famous enough?
NOW IT’S BENNY’S TURN TO GET SORTED OUT. WE NEED TO SORT OUT HIS WHACK FOOD CREATIONS
He’ll be keen for some nachos, go to the pantry only to find there’s no corn chips or salsa. “No worries” he says! There’s a packet of rice crackers and a tin of baked beans though? Sounds like nachos to me he reckons! He then proceeds to eat this bowl of nonsense that looks like it's fresh out of the sewer and is 100% satisfied with his choice. Eeeek.
LASTLY, WE NEED TO SORT OUT OUR AUTOGRAPHS!
We get quite a few people asking us to sign their merch at shows and we always feel terrible when we leave what can only be described as “chicken scratch” on a shirt that someone has spent their hard-earned money on! In saying that, it would be pretty hard to forge our signatures because it’s difficult to replicate such abysmal handwriting!
