I’m not sure if its our saddest song, but maybe if you lock yourself in your room for a couple of days and only listen to it you might not feel so happy, it is also okay if you feel happy to this song! Even better!!! James Harrison.

Brisbane pop trio The Goon Sax have announced the upcoming release of their new album We’re Not Talking marking the occasion by sharing its first single. ‘She Knows’. Written and sung by James Harrison with Louis Forster and Riley Jones in vocal tow, its breakneck speed and scuffed up edges has it veering into rock territory as its 80s inspired centre is engulfed by a distortion filled lo-fi 90s vibe. It’s energy however serves to mask its lyrical melancholy.
