Melbourne’s BATZ swoop in to save the day again with electric new single ‘Save Us’, premiering via Pilerats this week.
A heady mix of razor wire guitar, propulsive percussion and glimmers of psychedelia, Chrissie Aubry’s captivating vocals shine on BATZ’ latest offering that will chew you up and spit you out in the nicest way possible. Glittering, infectious and unapologetic, ‘Save Us’ teeters on the precipice of wishful thinking meets transparent actuality.
BATZ aka Melbourne artist Chrissie Aubry tells the tale of earlier days spent living in London, where the nights were long and the romance was flowing. “I had flashbacks of nights out in London with my girlfriends and meeting various randoms, (some who became love interests) and thinking about scenarios where you felt like you could save the relationship. I always feel like I’m the one that can save friendships and relationships, fighting for the last hope to salvage something special”, Aubry explains.
Expanding to a five-piece live, BATZ take their notoriously raucous show on the road this month, hitting Frankie’s Pizza in Sydney on May 31st and The Grace Darling in hometown Melbourne on June 2nd in support of the new single. Recorded at Los Bomberos Studios, the track was engineered and produced by Alex Markwell (The Delta Riggs) and mastered by David Briggs (Little River Band and Australian Crawl). BATZ’ latest stomper that follows enigmatic single ‘Gameshow Queen’ (2017) and fiery debut EP, ‘Night Terrors’ (2016). With new single ‘Save Us’, BATZ have well and truly come out of hibernation, guns blazing and guitars at the ready to woo you like never before.
