Perth indie-pop-rock outfit Man Sandal release their new single ‘Adulthood’ on Rocktron Records and look forward to their debut album.
Adulthood is a wry, upbeat yell at the ominous clouds of being worse off than our parents, climate destruction, and widespread mental anxiety, but telling it all to fuck right off nonetheless.
With jangly guitars and teasing harmonies laced with indie, pop, and folk influence, Adulthood is the first single from Perth gems Man Sandal’s upcoming debut LP due early 2021.
Adulthood is out on all platforms now via Rockton Records (RR008), and premiered on Triple J on January 5, 2021.
There is no doubt, socks and sandals are in, and Man Sandal are set to make 2021 their biggest year yet. Born from the Western Australian music scene and based in Perth, Man Sandal are a five piece collective of diverse musicians, captivating the ears of cities and small towns alike across the west.
Man Sandal brew a bewitching concoction of indie pop rock with jazz and folk influence woven throughout. Satisfying three part harmonies, soaring violin solos and joyful trumpet tie it all together, forging Man Sandal a faithful following at Perth haunts such as The Bird, Clancy’s, and The Rosemount.
Some recent triumphs include two WAM Song Of The Year nominations in 2017 and 2020, as well as taking the stage at the Nannup Music Festival, Fairbridge Festival, and WAMFest. Man Sandal have also featured on Triple J Unearthed, and winning accolades at the Fairbridge Quest songwriting competition.
In more recent times, the five-piece have toured regionally with Noah Dillon and have played alongside an array of local artists including Airline Food, Sly Withers, Fraeya, Smol Fish and more. Man Sandal released their first single By Your Side in 2016 and their debut EP Fancy Couch in 2017, followed by their second EP Last Night’s Dinner in 2018.
At the end of 2019 the band spent a week in the cosy town of Bremer Bay to record the most part of their upcoming debut album, set to be released mid-2021. The first taste of the LP is introduced with single Adulthood, coming January 6th, 2021.
