Naarm/Melbourne-based indie rock trio  Summer Flake have unleashed two new singles “Barnacle Bill” & “Ordinary“.

Both tracks are taken taken from their upcoming new album ‘One Less Thing‘, due to be released on February 24 through Rice Is Nice Records. Pre-order your copy here.

The first, ‘Barnacle Bill’ which is accompanied by this epically lo-fi videoclip features the band blasting out overdriven guitars and chugging bass. While the second single ‘Ordinary’ is by contrast, a much more tender introspective lullaby that reflects on a myriad of little experiences that move in and out of focus. 

Watch/listen below.

Summer Flake is a guitar-driven harmony-laden three-piece band lead by Steph Crase (Skid City, Batrider) on vocals and guitar, with Joel Carey (Peak Twins) on drums, and fresh face Perry Mahoney (The Shifters, Civil Union) on bass.

With three albums, four EPs and countless singles spanning a decade already under her belt, Crase has cultivated a loyal following, crafting perfectly measured lo-fi pop-rock gems, shot through with idiosyncratic guitar riffs and soft vocal harmonies, evoking both the 90s indie-rock underground and wistful nostalgic pop-balladry. On their forthcoming album “One Less Thing” the band pushes further into unexplored aural territory, with 10 songs that variously whisper and roar.
