Sydney indie-rock outfit Bhanglassi stopped by the Walk of Shame this morning performing three tracks live in the opulent surrounds of the Bondi FM Studios. In between tales of flooding schools, wearing meat undies and dreams of performing naked* the fellas informed us they’re starting to work on a new album which is due out soon-ish. Braving some pretty shocking weather the guys did well to squeeze into the studio and bust out their own brand of BhangLassi magic.
For the un-initiated their sound is similar to the Twang, or The Specials with just a touch of Happy Mondays and whilst the boys are fully assimilated into their Aussie lives their British heritage shines through brightly in the music. Always upbeat their music is defined by ‘kick ass choruses’ and some raucous harmonies.
The boys, who showed some comedy genius in the interview, are normally joined live by trumpets, keyboards and beats on stage but they whittled it down to three guitars and percussion to be able to fit in the studio. Check out the songs below and head along to The Gaelic this Friday to catch them live in all their glory.
There’s two other tracks for your audible over on my Soundcloud page. BhangLassi performed live on Bondi FM 23.7.11
*I may have embellished the wish to perform naked. But only slightly.
