Amyl and the Sniffers are a punk band possessed by the spirit of seventies Australian rock. Amy Louise Taylor (vocals), Bryce Wilson (drums), Dec Martens (guitar) and Gus Romer (bass) are former housemates who formed the band, wrote a handful of tunes and released their debut EP, Giddy Up, all in a span of twelve hours. Taking their cues from a diverse bunch of legends including AC/DC, Cosmic Psychos, Dolly Parton and Die Antwoord, they set out to have as much fun as possible.
Amyl and the Sniffers’ second EP, Big Attraction, was released in February 2017, kicking off a stellar year for these young punks. Growing buzz around their blistering live show made the band a hot tip at Bigsound in Brisbane, while the band was added to festival line-ups including Meredith and CherryRock17. The band sold out their first headline show at the Bendigo Hotel in September, and were invited to join the Cosmic Psychos on their forthcoming November/December tour. A stadium show awaits in January ’18 with some unknown band, Foo-something or other.
With a ton of heat behind them, a debut album due mid-2018, Amyl and the Sniffers are barely off the leash.
“Frontwoman, Amy Taylor’s nasal vocals are something of an unconventional beauty. Her antagonistic persona and barebone snarls prove that frontwomen of punk are a force to be reckoned with. The call and response vocals provide an element of storytelling – akin to Eddy Current Suppression Ring.” – Tonedeaf
