Bio

Approachable Members of Your Local Community unveil new single ‘Velcro’ – the third offering from their highly-anticipated forthcoming debut EP ‘If There’s Anything You Need, Please Don’t Hesitate To Contact Us’ (due May 25).

‘Velcro’ is a spicy disco-pop jam, held together tightly by its funk-laden rhythmic section. Glimmering with hypnotising keys, sweeping psychedelic guitars and capped off by the infectious and unique vocals melodies of front man, Josh Blashki.

The band sold out their headline show at The Toff In Town, Melbourne, and performed at indie club night Rare Finds in Sydney and at The Squeeze mini-festival alongside Lime Cordiale and Bootleg Rascal. On the week of the tracks release in early-March, the group also performed on Kira Puru’s ‘Tension’ tour to enthusiastic sold-out crowds.

Okay, call me crazy, but I'm getting flashbacks to my mum playing The Doobie Brothers when I was growing up and it's just making me feel all warm and nostalgic even though it doesn't really SOUND like DB but it's just taking me back there for some reason okay?

So sharp and liquidy, really honing in on that approachable sound. You've done it again!
