Published Jan 28, 2020Australia's finest garage punk trio Dune Rats are back with their third full-length album, Hurry Up and Wait. Riding off their highly successful 2017 record The Kids Will Know It's Bullshit, the band give fans an album filled with punk rock anthems perfect for your moshing and crowd-surfing needs.
The album's highlight is "Stupid Is as Stupid Does" featuring K.Flay, who's been dominating streaming platforms since 2017. The track's complementary vocals showcase the realities of life falling apart, yet doesn't steer away from the album's unconcerned attitude towards life.
Their lyrical content isn't ground-breaking, but the melodic and guitar-driven tracks give fans the perfect excuse to stop taking life so seriously. Despite the majority of the album projecting a carefree and ultra-relaxed attitude, hidden gems like "No Plans" and "The Skids" round out their sound nicely. Dune Rats might be known for trivial punk rock songs about millennial angst and partying, but their new album proves the band can be much more. (Rise)
