Wichita Recordings have announced the signing of Australian band The Goon Sax. The teen trio marry sublime indiepop with brilliantly human and brutally honest vignettes of adolescent angst delivered with personality, charm and heart-wrenching wonder. They will be heading to Europe for shows at the end of May, including dates supporting Frankie Cosmos, with a date at Gorilla in Manchester on 28 May as well as their own headline show at London’s Sebright Arms on 29 May.
The Goon Sax toured UK and Europe twice on that record, played The Great Escape and shows with Whitney, US Girls, Twerps and Teenage Fanclub, graduated school, and then turned their focus to album number two, due to be released later in the year via Wichita worldwide, except in Australia/New Zealand where it will be released by Chapter Music. After recording Louis spent some time being bohemian in a freezing Berlin apartment, but they are now all back in Australia, and keeping busy playing shows with Angel Olsen, Perfume Genius and Protomartyr.
