UPDATE 06/05/2023: “No Fuss” is our new Single of the Week!

“No Fuss” is a raw and biting love song that deftly straddles the hope and despair duality.

The band’s Joan Sweeney says: “No Fuss is a love song with a maniacal edgeOn the verge of being out of control and head over heels, but full of positive energy, gravitating toward something you’re sure will feel good any which way it happens.

The video was made by award-winning designer and “true pal” Raissa Pardini, who shares: “The video features love in a subtle way but with all the iconic graphical elements from the music that inspired the band. Colours, type, movement, something dynamic to guide your eyes through the music beat.”

Current Affairs “No Fuss”

Current Affairs’ song-writing process has always been collaborative. The songs were developed responsively, with each of the band’s members sending/bringing elements or hooks to each other, but practices being the place where the songs flesh out, structure and are fully realised.

Written from within the world of crumbling services, broken bonds and wounded spirits, Off the Tongue rolls off an ecstatic rage, filled with hope for you, them and everyone else. It’s a rallying cry away from hopelessness, forgiving your fears and laying them to waste.

Current Affairs are Joan Sweeney (ex-Rose McDowall’s Band, Aggi Doom, The Royal We), Sebastian Ymai (Comidillo Tapes, Pissy, Anxiety), Gemma Fleet (The Wharves, Order of the Toad, Dancer) and Andrew Milk (Shopping, Pink Pound).
