Radio Free Alice Unleash New Single/Video "Waste of Space"

Melbourne/Naarm indie rock/post punk band Radio Free Alice have unleashed their new single “Waste of Space” and its accompanying video.

The track features on their self-titled debut EP, out today, Nov 22. Buy it here.

Radio Free Alice’s angular sound feels fresh and immediate – guitars with clean tones and clever notes, melodic bass lines, urgent drumbeats, the occasional sax, and an operatic swagger that should have been honed in a New York art school rather than in the land of Oz.

Already selling out shows in their home town and across the east coast, Radio Free Alice combine an unlikely set of influences that includes ‘80s titans like Talking Heads, The Cure, The Smiths and The Sunny Boys, alongside more recent reference points like Parquet Courts, Ought and The Strokes.

Singer Noel Learmonth says of the track:

Waste of Space is a song about growing up and feeling unwanted. It came together pretty easily and quickly; we wrote it really collaboratively. The EP in many ways is a homage to our favourite artists. It’s post-punky but melodic. It’s a collection of some new and some older songs that we felt marked a good place to start.’
