Amyl and The Sniffers "U Should Not Be Doing That"

Melbourne punk /rock band Amyl and The Sniffers have released their new single “U Should Not Be Doing That“, alongside a video

The song, recorded with Nick Launay (Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Yeah Yeah Yeahs), is out now b/w “Facts”, and marks their first new music since their 2021 second album, Comfort To Me. Buy it here.

Speaking about it, vocalist Amy Taylor, says:

“Lyrically they’re both self-explanatory. U Should Not Be Doing That makes me laugh, but it’s also in a way poking fun at the shock that people still feel at a little bit of skimpy clothing, and the bitchy high school way that the music community still is – yes, I’m talking to you random 40-year-old metalheads sitting around a table doing lines and bitching about a 28-year-old chick in a band for wearing shorts and ‘selling out’ – but it mainly makes me laugh.”

It’s unconscious and meant nothing at the time of writing it but now I think it’s a comedic way of rubbing the dog’s nose in its own dog piss after it wee’d on your favourite rug or something.” She added.
