Shrapnel - Another Year
You can't help but feel nostalgic when you listen to the new single 'Another Year' from Sydney indie outfit Shrapnel. Let's face it, it's already August and the years nearly over. Each year will go even faster and faster. One day you're 20, in love at uni and the next you're 50, divorced, living on your ma's couch with a gambling problem. Where does the time go? Anyway, back to the fine music of Shrapnel. Originally starting out as a bedroom project of Sam Wilkinson (Day Ravies, Mope City, Beef Jerk, King Tears Mortuary), after two cassette releases – 2014’s Tobacco Dreams (Tenth Court) and 2015’s Carpet Yankers (Strange Pursuits) – Shrapnel started to morph into a band of its own accord, picking up members, including past and present members of Day Ravies, Mope City, Julia Why?, Miners, Weak Boys and Dollar Bar. Shrapnel’s debut album 'Tranceplanetsugarmouth' is out late-October through new Brisbane label Coolin’ By Sound.
