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

The only thing more damaging than a bull in a china shop is dave the band in one. They've put the foot down on this one for sure.
