‘Waiting For Dave’ the new single from The Bennies, sounds like Cheech and Chong teamed up with the Blues Brothers and started a Ska band. The clip was shot by Nick Manuell and features the epic horn players Wes ‘Money Train’ Kingsford (Sax), Nathan ‘Strathan’ Holt (Trumpet) and Michael ‘Dougy’ Rankin (Trombone), watch below!
‘Waiting For Dave’ is the fuel injected party starter of the summer, and a healthy indication that The Bennies are coming in hot! From the second the intro starts, an infectiously fun, rolling bassline sucks you into the party vortex. Lead singer Anty’s fun and cheeky persona shines on this track as his playful vocals dance over the verses, before the the band erupts for a punchy group vocal chorus.
“‘Waiting For Dave’ was so much fun to record, with Sam Johnson at the helm and the amazing horn section, who laced the song with so much extra flavour, having everyone in the studio vibing off each other was incredible, and you can really hear the energy captured on this record” DJ Snes Mega comments on the track.
Catch The Bennies live before they head off for their fourth European tour, playing at Belgium’s Brakrock festival and Punk Rock Holiday in Slovenia amongst a huge line up that also includes Nofx, Decedents and Less Than Jake. They’re Australian Summer tour kicks off tonight, details below.
