MP3: The Soft Pack – “Gagdad”

The Soft Pack

As you’re probably aware, in just a couple of months, everybody’s favourite garage-pop foursome, The Soft Pack, will be jettin’ to Australia for Victoria’s Falls Festival, WA’s Southbound Festival and Brisbane’s Sunset Sounds.

What you mightn’t know is that the guys also have a pair of Sydney and Melbourne sideshows up their sleeves:

Wed 5th Jan @ Manning Bar
(w/ Deep Sea Arcade + Bleeding Knees Club)

Fri 7th Jan @ The Corner
(w/ Boomgates + Bleeding Knees Club)

Almost as exciting as the Californian foursome themselves is the incredible support bill in each state.

In Sydney, the group will be joined by retro-poppers, Deep Sea Arcade. In Melbourne, it’ll be none other than garage rock supergroup, Boomgates (featuring members of Eddy Current Suppression Ring, The Twerps, Dick Diver and Teen Archer). And in both states, Gold Coast two-piece punk outfit and Triple J Unearthed favourites, Bleeding Knees Club, will inject their furious energy into proceedings.

‘Cause we’re all so damn pumped for the shows, we thought we’d whore out The Soft Pack’s latest piece of razor-sharp, no frills brilliance. The freely downloadable “Gagdad” is originally taken from a super-limited 7″ that the guys released while on tour in the States. It’s around 6 minutes long, making it just about the most epic thing they’ve ever recorded. But it’s still raw, catchy and to-the-point. These guys don’t mess around.
