Ep 340 – Israeli Chicks

Israeli Chicks:

Live at Crowbar, Fortitude Valley, 1 November 2019

Contrary to their name, Israeli Chicks are actually a group of men from Byron Bay. With Sam Love on vocals and bass, Zar Harper on guitar and Louie O’Riordan on drums, the trio started off as housemates before forming a band and playing their first gig in 2016. The EP “I Love You Mum” came quickly the following year, followed by the “Ham & Egg Double” single in 2018 and “Natural Decline” EP in 2019.

Life Strike:

Live at Sonic Masala Fest, Greenslopes Bowls Club, 17 August 2019

Though a Melbourne band, none of the three members of Life Strike are locals. Bassist Nick Pratt is originally from New Zealand, previously playing in the band Deaf Wish. Guitarist Patrick McCabe and drummer Scotty Brique both come from Brisbane, McCabe having played in Dollar Bar and Brique in Nova Scotia, Seaplane and Air Jordans.

Playing their first show in 2016, the band released a self-titled 7″ EP on Unwound Records in 2017. In 2019 their first album “Primitive Future” was released, featuring songs depicting an offbeat, post-apocalyptic future through the lens of upbeat, Flying Nun-influenced post-punk.
