Many of us undoubtedly long to regress back into our angsty 90’s alt-rock phases, without being consumed in the shadows of past hits and ideals. Emerging band, Second Idol, have presented themselves as the solution to this dilemma with the release of their debut single ‘White Noise’.
Lathered in influence from bands like Placebo and Sonic Youth, this eccentric Sydney-based piece have created a musical timewarp. ‘White Noise’ is unmistakably nostalgic, creating something familiar, yet unheard. The delectably grimy vocals, partnered with menacing geet create something inherently grunge, outspoken and demanding to be heard.
Their capturing nature is only complimented by their true message- one which aims to educate and inform through their most powerful tool; music.
Lead singer Kate Olivia explains;
“‘White Noise’ is a contemplation of body politics, women's bodies and misogyny. It emerged out of my observations of comments often made by cis men on social media regarding the policing of women and gender non-conforming bodies. The lyrics are written in a way that I'm having a conversation with someone in a bar, and I’m calling them out on their misinformed views and telling them that ‘we need to take this conversation outside’, then they just get sledgehammered with a barrage of guitars.”
True to their impressive sound in ‘White Noise’, Second Idol are not only here to make songs, but to make anthems.
‘White Noise’ will be launched at Frankie’s Pizza on February 27th, as well as featured in a Mardi Gras performance by Second Idol in early March!
