Bio

Everyone knows a Dave. He’s the friendly larrikin from high school. The mate that gets everyone home safely after a big night. The postie that’s always up for a chat. The old bean who you see at the beach every day. Dave the band are a raucous three-piece from Newcastle.

'Get Smart' is the second single to be taken from the band's forthcoming debut album, 'Slob Stories'.

"This is the “fun” song on the album. It’s more light-hearted compared to the other tracks on Slob Stories but is really important to the bigger picture of the album. I think of it as a little bit of sunshine peeking through the clouds on an otherwise dark and gloomy day – a sentiment that sums up the entire album pretty well. It’s about reaching a turning point where you realise that you’ve got to stop dwelling on the BS that is happening around you and get on with your day. Putting certain thoughts at the back of your mind, if only for a couple of hours, and letting yourself focus on the important things. I remember Steve said it sounded like The Breeders and it made me happy." - noah

always a joy hearing from one of the country's hardest working bands. once again, you three have churned out a juicy, catchy, yoch-filled delight. super keen to hear the rest of the record!

look at you guys, flexing all over the UE competition with your catchy af hooks. Really good stuff, reminds me a bit of Jebediah back in the day!

a fuzzy, catchy winner from dave the band. i don't know whether to sing, jump or dance around and i've ended up doing it all at the same time and it's like that saying about too many chefs. despite my poor choices, this song rules.
