Did you know that former Australian Prime Minister Bob Hawke set a world record for sculling 2,5 pints of beer in 11 seconds? And that he later suggested that this was the reason for his great political success? Australia huh, those overachievers. Also hailing from this magical country are the phenomenal Tourist Dollars who are pictured about and just popped the cork on their debut EP – and it’s a really refreshing one behind that cork. Coming self titled and with smooth artwork, the four songs on the EP are nothing short of pure summer bliss, with driving riffs, reverb vocals and a sun drenched depth. Bliss.
