Flightless Records picks up Melbourne punks Amyl and the Sniffers, whose last record on Homeless saw them boiling down The Adverts’ snottiness with breathless guitar beatings worthy of The Dead Boys or The Germs. The new single, “Cup of Destiny” garners a video that’s a straight ‘70s rumble, echoing these sneer-lipped influences and ushering in their own dirt-punk credentials. It’s clear from any time spent with Amyl on the speakers that vocalist Amy Taylor is a natural born belter, amping up the fever pitch with her sore-throat howl. The band’s done time opening for some heavy hitters here and at home, so it seems that the upcoming LP might be one to watch out for.
