NEWS: Body Type return with awesome Pandemic anthem ‘Miss The World’

Body Type have announced details of their second album Expired Candy (pre-order here) out June 2nd via Poison City Records together with their latest single ‘Miss The World’ out now (listen here).

Following their run of shows with Fontaines D.C. earlier this month, the Australian quartet deliver their raucous first peek of new record Expired Candy with ‘Miss The World’. A razor-sharp garage pop anthem born of the COVID pandemic, with scurrying Batman-theme-like guitars and pummeling drums, laced with lead vocalist and guitarist, Sophie McComish’s urgent vocals, that are both an insidiously hooky lament and a spitting ball of frustration, swirling with the tumult of isolation, claustrophobia and the absurdity of our society and culture, raging at the “unquestioning compliance and the ascent of tyrants, told through pre-teen anarchists, bichon frises, and a drum beat based on a Gwen Stefani song.” For fans of the Breeders and Sleater-Kinney, it’s frankly unstoppable.

Acting less as a commentary on the pandemic but rather the realisations, both personal and collective that occurred during that time. Sophie McComish shares, “On face value this is a COVID song. But more than that, it’s an ode to the realisations, personal and collective, that occurred during that time. Realisations about society, culture, values, the things that matter, the parts we play. At the end of the day, the world is totally absurd and many things make very little sense when you think about them too hard. But we gotta squeeze these little brains of ours and do the thinking, realise the realisations. Complacency is dangerous, passion is contagious.”

Body Type asserts there’s no time like the present and speaking to its imminent release, they reveal “Expired Candy is filled with hope, love, and danger, dancing with delicious uncertainty. In pursuit of joy we dreamed up songs about mothers, sisters, dogs, nans; family tantrums, forward motion, falling in love, platonic or romantic, with someone or self. Heartbreaks, teeth will shatter, but she’ll be there when it really matters. Flirty, feral and defiant, just how we like it. From our wild heart to yours, Body Type.”
