You may have heard Amyl and The Sniffers play ‘Security’ live before, but it hits particularly different as the pubs and clubs in our cities continue to open and close intermittently as part of lockdowns. As frontwoman Amy Taylor begs to be let into the pub, listeners can comfortably headbang along to a sentiment that we can all relate to right now on the epic new single, which is taken from the band’s forthcoming record, Comfort To Me.
Premiered on BBC Radio 1’s Future Sounds with Annie Mac, ‘Security’ is the second track to be released from Comfort To Me, which officially drops on the 10th of September via B2B Records. It follows on from lead single ‘Guided By Angels’, which you can check out right here. The record was mixed by Nick Launay (Nick Cave, IDLES, Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and mastered with the expertise of Bernie Grundman (Prince, Michael Jackson, Dr. Dre).
In her statement on the full-length, frontwoman Amy Taylor commented: “If you have to explain what this record is like, I reckon it’s like watching an episode of The Nanny but the setting is an Australian car show and the Nanny cares about social issues and she’s read a couple of books, and Mr Sheffield is drinking beer in the sun. It’s a Mitsubishi Lancer going slightly over the speed limit in a school zone. It’s realising how good it is to wear track pants in bed. It’s having someone who wants to cook you dinner when you’re really shattered. It’s me shadow-boxing on stage, covered in sweat, instead of sitting quietly in the corner.”
Amyl and The Sniffers will premiere a filmed performance of the album in full on a slab of concrete in a suburban wasteland somewhere in their home of Melbourne, Australia on October 5th. You can pick up tickets for the affair here.
