Violent Soho have released a brand-new track from their upcoming fifth studio album ‘Everything Is A-OK’.
‘Pick It Up Again’ was released today (March 17), just days after the band reached the Top five of triple j’s Hottest 100 Of The Decade with ‘Covered In Chrome’, which clinched the number four spot.
Violent Soho have also released an accompanying video, directed by Dan Graetz. In the clip, the band play door-to-door salesmen, attempting to promote ‘Everything Is A-OK’ by performing ‘Pick It Up Again’ in the living rooms and backyards of various suburban households.
This includes what appears to be the backyard where the ‘Covered In Chrome’ video was shot, as well as the front-yard which was photographed on the cover of ‘Everything Is A-OK’.
Watch it below.
‘Pick It Up Again’ is the fourth song to be released from the album. It follows the album’s quasi-title track ‘A-OK’, ‘Vacation Forever’ and ‘Lying On The Floor’.
In February, the band performed a string of intimate return shows in Melbourne, Sydney and the band’s native Brisbane.
NME’s review of the Sydney show described the scene thus: “Bodies went flying, manes of hair thrashed in time with Mikey Richards’ pounding drums and the singing got so loud that frontman Luke Boerdam could have dropped off-mic at any time and allowed the pub choir to take the reins”.
‘Everything Is A-OK’ is set for release on April 3 via I Oh You.
