Sly Withers have Google Maps on their phone, petrol in their car and they’ve been blazing their way around Australia with a long list of sell-out shows this year. Chalking up another win thanks to triple j Unearthed’s NIDA competition, the lads from Perth’s northern suburbs have just dropped a huge new video for their new single, ‘Pleb’. With festival appearances on WA’s Hyper and NSW’s King Street Crawl already this year, the band are just getting started on what’s going to be a huge 12 months of shows, releases and great vibes.
“Sly Withers’ ‘Pleb’ is rousing punk meets heart-on-your-sleeve The Smith Street Band vibes.” – triple j Unearthed
Sly Withers is a band you need to see to truly appreciate. Dual frontmen Sam and Jono weave heartfelt, everyday lyrics over big riffs and a masterful rhythm section, as their clever words find resonance in the lives of every Australian. Get around this band and make your own mind up, because, as Sam puts so eloquently – “but hey, just a pleb from the northern suburbs.”
“…top notch emotive punk.” – TheMusic.com.au
“…a heartfelt punk outfit who will draw you in from the beginning. Dripping with honest lyrics and ferocious guitar, I can assure you that I swiftly downloaded every single damn song I could get my hands on. Fans of The Smith Street Band and Luca Brasi will be quick to fall in love with this fresh act whose live presence is beyond phenomenal.” – the au revie
