Brisbane’s Good Boy today return with their next politically-charged tune, ‘CRF’. The new single follows the band’s surprise track, ‘Sodabread’, which dropped earlier this month. The tracks offer up the first taste of Good Boy’s forthcoming debut album, due for release in the second half of 2019.
Having developed a loyal following through their often ruthless and always honest lyrical commentary on the world around them, Good Boy continue this trend with CRF. As best put by vocalist Rian King, “CRF stands for nothing, not unlike all round dislikeable bloke and pig in a wig, the dishonourable Joe Hockey. This absolute scumbag spends tax payer money on fancy food and plonk. He is a bit of a shit political figure and has little backbone. Enjoy the song”
After expanding to a quartet with the addition of bass guitarist Marli Smales, Good Boy are continuing to produce their beloved Aussie-tinged punk sound, with as much attitude as ever. This time around however, the new-and-improved Good Boy welcome a horn section, whipped up by talented instrumentalists Daniel Grima and Matt Luff.
To bring ‘CRF’ to life, Good Boy worked with producer Tim Morrissey (The John Steel Singers) on the track, with engineering and mixing by Aidan Hogg, and mastering by Mikey Young.
