Sticky Fingers are adding the next chapter to their melodic, melancholic, mega hectic melange. CARESS YOUR SOUL is released this week. It is the bands first single from their upcoming debut album - and in good news for the band the song has been added to JJJ this week.
Sticky began the year with a bang. A weirdly whack, worship filled 2.45am New Years eve gig at Woodford Festival that had all the hallmarks of some sort of overly devoted, out of control cult. And they haven't slowed down since. They bolted out on the road in early 2012 for a 32 date 2Quetilaz tour late Feb, staying out until April and selling out venues from the Indi bar in WA to the Sol Bar in Qld. They then went back out on the road for the Megaphonic mini tour again in June, once again selling out the Sol Bar and packing venues thru SA, and up the East Coast to Qld.
In the short amount of downtime between tours Sticky squirrelled themselves away in the studio working on getting the songs together right. They then enlisted the magic fingers of D. Hume to work on the tracks and before you could say psych doom dub raaaage, what had initially been
intended as an EP has grown to become an album.
The new material features the band not only doing what they do best - singing songs about feeling low and getting high - it sees Sticky tighten their focus, and songwriting, and come up with a bunch of psychotic surf dub love songs.
They have turned up a bunch of songs about the bands four members recent break ups (this band breaks up in cycles apparently). Co-incidence? We're not really sure. Shortly after the band started touring each of the members went through a break-up and this bunch of songs tells the story (albeit through glorified glasses). The release continues the development of their charismatic genre mash sound. Psych, surf dub garage: Caress your Soul smashes it all together.
Caress Your Soul is now out and it'll be followed early next year by the debut album. The band will be doing one last large tour for the year through September and October this year. HAPPY ENDINGS: The band's last single, Happy Endings has scored great support around the country and internationally, picking up a stack of play in the months from its Oct release through til June 2012 and introduced Sticky to a wider audience.
The band have also sold out gigs from Sol Bar on the Sunshine Coast to Indi Bar in WA on the secondary run they did to support the Happy Endings release. Happy Endings has also just gone out on a compilation in the U.S.with Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zero's and a bunch of other choice U.S. new comers.
