Oscar Galt and The Eventual Somethings are a Melbourne band out of Thornbury who play what can only be described as a hazy blend of beer-soaked, noise-rock tinged slacker-grunge and what better introduction to exactly that than their new single, All Hail The Worm. Set to feature on the second offering of the band’s twin EPs, due on April 28th, the song is a culmination of clear 1990s influences with layers of woozy guitars and vocals to match.
Leading up to the launch of a follow up to last year’s EP Play Things, the band have dropped a video for All Hail The Worm, which features a particularly iconic Melbourne music figure. Filmed entirely in one long take, the video follows Redro Redriguez, the sound-guy for Melbourne rock institution Cherry Bar, as he meanders unflinchingly through what appears to be a costume-demolition party-slash-food-fight-slash-out and out brawl. A wonderfully fitting clip for the slacker-grunge track.
The track will feature on Drift Away, the second of the twin EPs from the band, which will be out via Melbourne independent label Bad Health and was produced and mixed in Yarraville studio Yikesville by yet another Melbourne stalwart, Shane O’Mara (Time Rogers, Lisa Miller). It comes out on April 26th, so you have from now to brace yourselves!
