Rocking as fuck thrash-punk coming at you from Melbourne’s BATZ tonight thanks to brand new track Darlin’. Feel the energy, pace and vibe grab you by the balls straight away, don’t worry, it ain’t painful, in WildnFree‘s view it’s always amazing to hear a fellow woman singing with such wailing conviction and ferocity. Listen.
Front woman Christina Aubry says, “…the song is basically about any given situation where another person might think they’re the one with the upper hand, and therefore begin to undermine you. ‘Darlin’ is pretty much about making them realise that you’ve seen through the cockiness and that you are in fact stronger, smarter and overall more powerful than they gave you credit for”.
Hey guess what dickhead? Christina and BATZ say you don’t tick all those boxes. You’ve got nothing on her. Fuck off.
Following on from debut EP Night Terrors last year, Darlin’ is a newbie engineered by Alex Maxwell of The Delta Riggs. Catch BATZ touring Darlin’ live up and down the East Coast this February, including Geelong and Ballarat regional dates plus a glorious 2am spot at Melbourne’s best dive bar Yah Yah’s. See below for info.
