Irish-Australian rockers from Sydney’s inner west, FLICKERTAIL, have released their new live single, ‘Small Town BBC Murder Mysteries (Live in the Studio)’ on digital platforms, through Golden Robot Records. FLICKERTAIL play guitar-fuelled rock and roll exactly the way it’s supposed to be played. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Thin Lizzy, the Dubliners, Airbourne and The Darkness, the band honed their sound in the garages and booze dens of Sydney.
Their new single, ‘Small Town BBC Murder Mysteries (Live in the Studio)’ has been liftedfrom the upcoming live EP Afterlife, which is slated for release in June. “Through sickly-sweet guitars and call-backs to the worst decisions of our young lives, this song tells the story of a reformed grog monster looking back on his glory days. A lot of us dread settling down and living a quiet life, but if you’ve enjoyed life in the fast lane a bit of silence can do you good.”
Exploding out of Sydney’s Inner West, Flickertail, (formerly The Bitter Sweethearts), play guitar-fuelled retro-rock inspired in equal measure by Airbourne and the Arctic Monkeys.
Their debut EP, Hurry Up and Wait, warranted rave reviews and radio play from Australia to the UK and everywhere in between. Subsequent singles continued the trend. Flickertail are notorious for an incendiary live performance honed in the booze dens and backyard of Australia’s Eastern coast was refined on stages shared with Aussie legends Buffalo and the Superjesus, before international support slots with the likes of Supersuckers, Zak Starkey(Oasis, the Who) and Living Colour. Armed with only their wits, guitars and their stunning good looks, Flickertail continue to preach the good word of honest, authentic Aussie rock and roll around the globe
