Sydney’s Flickertail have released the music video for their second single, Back of My Mind, lifted from their upcoming 5-track debut EP, Hurry Up and Wait, out 16 March via Golden Robot Records and is available for pre-order now.

Check out the video below and album pre-order details.

Filmed by Jack Barratt and directed by Jonny GoldrickBack of My Mind was written in the midst of reading James Joyce’s Dubliners with one of the lyric lines lifted directly from one of his stories and as they’ve said, if anyone finds it, the guys will buy them a pint at one of their upcoming shows.

Their new EP, Hurry Up and Wait could be called a concept style record: through screaming Les Pauls and thunderous drums, it tells the story of four dashing young men with no money having a bloody great time watching Braveheart, sinking tins and getting thoroughly excited about English Premier League soccer highlights. It’s also a rough collection of love stories, but that’s much less fun to talk about.

In the studio, the boys landed Steve Balbi and Tony Wall, the latter of which has worked with just about everyone from Olivia Newton-John to KISS. Naturally, as lifelong devotees of honest, in-your-face guitar rock, they were beyond thrilled to record the next Xanadu.

Everything the band love about music is on this record. There are guitar lines like Thin Lizzy, AC/DC boogie, bits of Slade stomp, rich vocal harmonies, Beatlesy melodies, and make-a-cinderblock-cry sincerity. It’s raucous love songs, played loud and honest with no autotune or sampling in earshot.

Available to pre-order now and out on 16 March, Hurry Up and Wait is available across retail, including iTunes and GooglePlay, with the singles now streaming on Spotify and Apple Music.

Hurry Up and Wait track listing:

“Let There Be Love”
“Fade Away”
“Green Eyed Girl”
“Back Of My Mind”
