Bio

Caught in a generation of young adults who can't afford to buy houses because they'd prefer to eat avocado on toast, punk-rock trio Something Something Explosion refuse to blend into the background of the Australian music scene.

Heavily influenced by bands such as Bodyjar, NOFX and Frenzal Rhomb, Something Something Explosion have brought to life an unprecedented and rare sound that makes you long for the 1990s - combined with live shows that hit you like a bat to the face.
Recorded and produced by Frenzal Rhomb's Jason Whalley, Something Something Explosion’s 2018 EP Propaganda Machine gives its audience a broke twenty-something's viewpoint on issues such as modern politics, society's so-called "development," and unfair treatment in the workplace due to age & social status.

Following the 2016 release of their single Dominique, the band quickly gained momentum - which then caught the attention of Triple J’s Short. Fast. Loud. & Brisbane’s alternative radio station, 4ZZZ. The track also held a place on Triple J Unearthed’s punk, rock & metal charts for several weeks following the release.

With material versatile enough to appeal to a wide range of audiences, Something Something Explosion have supported the likes of Ali Barter; The Bennies; WAAX; Me First & The Gimme Gimmes; Frenzal Rhomb; British India; Kingswood; Clowns; King Parrot; Child Bite (USA); Butterfingers; Totally Unicorn; Sheer Mag (USA).

The end of 2017 saw Grace Drummond, Something Something Explosion’s guitarist & vocalist, share a stage with Lindsay McDougall on multiple occasions, including two sold-out shows at the Mansfield Tavern with Violent Soho.

2018 is looking to be a promising year for the young trio, kicking off with a mentorship with Australia’s leading heavy music record label UNFD, and support spots with Australian hip-hop legends Butterfingers & grindcore favourites King Parrot.

If you told me that this was part of the soundtrack to an unreleased Tony Hawk game for the PS2, I'd believe you. This is a great track!
