Jack Davies and The Bush Chooks release new single ‘Perhaps I’ll Drift Away’

The band's second single for the year

Perth outfit Jack Davies and The Bush Chooks have released their latest single ‘Perhaps I’ll Drift Away’.

The single marks the band’s second song lifted from their forthcoming EP ‘Songs For A Long Walk’, due out later this year. The first track from the EP, ‘Half Frozen Beer’, came out in March.

Clocking in at just under four minutes, the new song follows a tried-and-true Jack Davies and The Bush Chooks formula, with vocalist and bandleader Jack Davies’ Australian lilt carrying the lyrics.

Davies explained the meaning behind the song in a press release.

“It was written about a feeling of frustration, being fed up with myself and the way my brain keeps trying sabotage things,” he said. “It always runs away at the wrong time.”

The band’s first release for the year, ‘Half Frozen Beer’, saw them take out second place at the 2020 Western Australian Music Song Of The Year Awards, with Fremantle-based artist Carla Geneve claiming first prize. They also took home the award for ‘Best Country Song’ at the event.

The group have been releasing music as Jack Davies and The Bush Chooks since 2018, making their debut with the song ‘Vegemite Sandwich’.


Jack Davies and The Bush Chooks have been playing shows in their home state over the past few weeks and will play an all-ages single launch for ‘Perhaps I’ll Drift Away’ on Friday September 5. Find tickets here.
