Bio

The Vitriots are quickly becoming one of the most unique and impressive bands in the Australian underground scene. With their latest track ‘Pinball Wizard’, the young Sydney outfit go against the grain of alternative garage rock, as a distinct statement from a band who doesn’t feel the need to pigeonhole themselves to the confines of genre.

With tinny electric guitar taking center stage right before the sucker punch of thunderous drums, the track has a charm that seems reminiscent of all the best 90’s grunge. Producer Dylan Adams has created a sonic wall in the track that breaks clean from the current landscape.

Pinball Wizard’s combination of many different sounds and moving parts showcases the bands pallet and inspirations. Nirvana, The Pixies and even some Courtney Barnett, it’s all in there. But they all culminate in a distinctly original track that will be sure to echo through festival stages. Make no mistake about it, The Vitriots aren't just banging on the Aus Rock door, they are busting it right open.

Not gonna lie, when I first heard that chorus line I thought you said "I just want to fucking die" instead of "I just want to fucking dance". That definitely comes from that brit rock influence you guys carry over. And I mean I'm up for both, but knowing that the lyric is dance makes me want to take my shoes off and "fucking dance" to this. This one's goi...

This one packs the punch.
