Wollongong indie-dance outfit Good Lekker are treating fans to their exhilarating new single, Hard To Be Alone. Produced by the six piece themselves, the track was mastered by Steve Smart at Studios 301. The band are set to release a visual for the song in the coming weeks.
Diving headfirst into infectious lead guitar riffs, stedfast percussion and the grooviest bass lines you'll hear today, Good Lekker have crafted a scintillating fusion of indie-dance, just in time for the weekend. Made complete with bright piano chords and arpeggiating synths, the track builds to a crescendo, overtaken by crash cymbals and manic guitars to see the track out with a monumental finale. Conceptually, the song creates tackles personality traits, creating caricature out of our actions to comment on the retrospective absurd view we can sometimes have of our actions.
Speaking of the inspiration behind the song, co-frontman Josh Fahy shares: “We wrote the track in early 2020 up on the Central Coast in a jam session and the lyrics represent the turmoil I was dealing with at the time. I wanted the lyrics to take aim at a caricature of myself, mainly to vent on some built up frustration I had about my actions. I have the tendency to be unnecessarily argumentative, and I wanted to portray the ridiculousness of that through this caricature.”
Good Lekker burst on to the scene with their debut EP, which saw them tour the east coast of Australia with a string of sold out performances. No strangers to hitting the road, the band have embarked on multiple headline tours and supporting crowd favourites Boo Seeka and The Babe Rainbow, as well as slots at Australian boutique festivals Party in the Paddock, Yours & Owls, Sweaty Palms, FKA Festival and Garden Party.
