Regionals Are An Incredible Band With 2 Ridiculously Good Songs Out And 48 Followers On Facebook
The best thing about running a blog accessible to emerging artists is that bands like Regionals show up in your inbox out of nowhere just to say hello. With an incredible debut two track already out and only a handful of followers across any of their socials, today I'm proud to introduce you to an incredible band we clearly all slept on... Regionals.
Having formed 18 months ago, Regionals hit the rehearsal room hard and the studio harder. Emerging from Mr Milk studios in Sydney way back in July 2017 with their phenomenal self titled debut two track Regionals. Having been produced by Dylan Adams the man behind your favourite releases from Hannahband, Oslow and West Thebarton and mastered by Michael Lynch (Midnight Oil, Something For Kate), Regionals screams quality before you even hit play.
So it's unsurprising that hitting play on Regionals is such an instantly unregrettable action.
Opening track Piss & Biscuits slams into a vocal hook set to get stuck in your head for weeks to come. Splitting open your introduction to the band with a frantic, urgent energy that soon subsides and allows the track to develop into it's intricacies. Taking advantage of the five piece format, Piss & Biscuits is laden with harmonies, clever dueling guitars and an ever steady rhythm section.
Devil's Backbone dials back the pace and punches into a slow burning, big building number that soars on a combination of deep Australiana and heavy emo influence. The track suckers you into a sense of stability in it's moments of softness before setting flight on an absolutely huge chorus delivered with a venom that sits viscous in the ear of the listener.
These are two very impressive songs from an undeniably impressive new Australian artist. With an EP on track for release some time this year and Piss & Biscuits added to high rotation on Triple J Unearthed it's about time to get on board with Regionals.
