Good Boy have shared their second single, ‘A Waste Of Approximately 122 Million Dollars (Taxpayer Funded)’, from their EP Shirk Life, due November 10. Watch the accompanied (claymation!) video directed by Fin Marx below!
The song spits a frustrated and self-explanatory message about the absurd, insulting and embarrassing marriage equality plebiscite in Australia. As singer Rian King explains, “122 million dollars of public funding for an opinion is disgusting. In NZ all they had to do was sign a piece of paper and go to lunch but our pathetic bureaucracy-obsessed need to spend money and time, distracts from what should already be legal. There is no valid argument against same sex marriage.”
Recorded by Cameron Smith and mixed and mastered by Mikey Young, ‘A Waste Of Approximately 122 Million Dollars (Taxpayer Funded)’ is whip-smart and catchy-as-hell. The band will be touring Shirk Life in December, and the EP will be available on a limited edition 12” vinyl, packaged with their earlier standout EP Plum, the double EP is now available for pre-order here.
