Sydney art-pop punk duo TAFE throw you straight into the awkwardness of an inner suburban sharehouse argument on new single ‘Sharehouse’.
Singer/producer Jasper Bistro & multi-instrumentalist/producer Mikey Field are hiding in their room til it’s over, hungry but hesitant to walk through the lounge room to the kitchen. It’s tense.
That tension is mirrored in the track’s pop punk via trip hop beat that wreaks of bong water damaged carpets, plates with leftover Mi Goreng from last week and anxious burnt out lyrics that are much too catchy for their own good. ‘Sharehouse’ is the sound of unpaid hospitality wages, the toll of welfare shaming media, the total clusterfuck of logging onto Twitter Dot Com and a life cursed to be forever shared in houses with people just as messed up as you are.
The shit may go down in the sharehouse, however it’s what’s happening outside of it that is the real danger.
