Australian experimental-pop act Collarbone are back! The duo have returned with their new single, Ripe for Filth.

The musical project of Adelaide’s Travis Cook and Sydney’s Marcus Whale, the duos latest offering is a pop-meets-alt-rock dream, fuelled by scintillating synth melodies, a magnetic bass line and grunge-leaning guitar work. The track finds the duo giving into an all-consuming pleasure, building their own realm in which anything can happen.

“This song was written in the midst of daily binges of watching Deftones live videos while locked inside for months on end. It became a kind of escapist obsession. I spent a lot of time in 2020 noodling on my guitar to pass the endless hours. Remembering the dirty, simplistic but starry-eyed aesthetics of 90s alternative music culture became a means for disappearing into a fantasy world. ‘Ripe for Filth’ is about giving into pleasure at all costs, imagining a world in which we're unnamed and unnameable, nothing but an ecstatic sensation that flows through.”

Ripe for Filth is out now!
