Dharawal and Gadigal country-based punks SCABZ have dropped the title track off their upcoming debut album, Pressure. The record is due to drop later this month and will include their previous single, Guess Who?.

Inspired by iconic punk acts The Sex Pistols, The Clash and Joy Division, the band continue their sharp with and fierce approach to the genre. Centred around a driving bass line and lead singer Siobhan Poynton’s spoken vocal performance, the song is the latest taste of what to expect from the bands debut album

Speaking of the inspiration behind the track, Poynton shared: “‘Pressure’ is about what it actually feels like to live in a world where you have no power and no control. Not necessarily the anger but the actual feeling of being under pressure to understand and fix something you didn’t choose.”

Last year, the band from Newtown five shows back-to-back sets at the King Street Crawl, equalling the events record for the most amount of sets performed. SCABZ have also performed nationwide at festivals such as Yours & Owls Festival, Festival of the Sun, BIGSOUND and Bad Friday, and shared the stage with local legends Skegss and Ruby Fields.

Pressure is out now.
