There’s this band from Australia called Sticky Fingers, right…? They haven’t released a new song in years BUT somehow have racked up a BILLION streams across Spotify and Apple Music.
How, you ask? Honestly, no one knows….don’t ask them. It’s a miracle really. They don’t have a label, don’t have any radio, haven’t had any big late night tv moments or big press looks and the guys barely get to band practice. They fight, they make up and then try to tour a bit and inevitably something crazy will happen on tour and the show that night will be incredible or terrible. It’s really something. But, for 12 years now and despite all the chaos surrounding them, people decided they loved this band. They listen to anything and everything. They tell friends. They show up to concerts all over the world in huge numbers that don’t make sense and scream lyrics back to them. They want the band to release new music desperately, and if you read YouTube comments the fans really want them back in Brazil.
Yes, Sticky Fingers have always been a full on…in your face band. It’s going great or it’s barely going. Magically though, they figured out a way to use the forced downtime of the last year to put together a new album…the 5th full length album actually, called “We Can Make the World Glow”. It’s the title of their first single which has just been released and will lead off an exciting barrage of new music and other quality content over the next few months. The full album will be heard by the world in March 2022… maybe before if it leaks somewhere but hopefully not.
Their latest single “We Can Make the World Glow” is soaked in a utopia of hopefulness, contoured with subtle euphoria. The group shares, “We Can Make the World Glow, is a really uplifting track about getting on with life amidst the demons in your head and other shit that weighs you down.”
“We Can Make the World Glow” oozes in light beams of warbling synths, with floaty, breezy riffs spinning up to higher frequencies of feel good empowerment. This is Sticky Fingers at their finest hour. With high-spirited, tight drums, the track carries a woozy, sunset energy doused in a grittiness that gives the song StiFi’s signature rocky glaze. The inspiring melody carries a profound sense of comfort, emphasising the notion that everything will be ok.
