Faster, simpler, tougher: This is City Calm Down like you’ve never heard them before.
To celebrate the news of the album’s release, last night the Melbourne outfit premiered huge new single ‘Stuck (On The Eastern)’ on triple j’s Good Nights. “Man, you’ll never reach the end,” sings frontman Jack Bourke. It’s a provocation to think, not follow.

“We set out to make a record that would excite us,” explains Jack. “That meant drawing on influences we grew up listening to and first excited us as kids, bands like bands like The Clash, T.Rex, Midnight Oil, Talking Heads and The Smiths and mixing those influences with artists we’ve come to love as we’ve grown up.
“We’re proud of how different this record is from everything else we’ve done,” he continues.“And we’re f*cking excited to put it out!”
