If time is money, that explains why Polish Club are a little strapped for the stuff on the ram-raiding lead track of Okie Dokie. The six fresh tunes blast forth barely ten months after the Sydney guitar-drums duo blew up the party punch with their spring-loaded ARIA nominated debut album, Alright Already.
Singer-guitarist Novak remembers the stand-and-deliver sentiment of Gimme Money, arising from a broader concept about making the entire EP about the imminent apocalypse, "you know, so maybe we should make as much music as we can before the world blows up.
"My mind just naturally took that into 'God, how hard is it being in a band?' Which it isn't, really, but ... there's a lot of misconceptions about the rewards of being in a working rock band," he says with a laugh, recalling the blood and madness of Polish Club's 15-date sold-out album tour of the country in May/June, which left a helpless trail of quivering devotees in its wake. Polish Club have also been the scene-stealing support act to Courtney Barnett, Northeast Party House, Jamie T, The Preatures and Gang of Youths.
Okie Dokie is another utterly essential Polish Club recording that will slam you sideways against the nearest wall and refuse to apologise. Give 'em your money, and nobody needs to get hurt.
