Amyl and the Sniffers
Punk animals Amyl and The Sniffers have risen up from the sticky carpets of Melbourne’s underground music scene to storm the world stage. Renowned for their chaotic, ball-tearing live show, Dec Martens (guitar), Bryce Wilson (drums) and Gus Romer (bass) smash through the hooks at breakneck pace while “human firework” Amy Taylor lights up the stage.
The band generated a ton of hype at The Great Escape and played to packed houses at SXSW, topping the list of Rolling Stone’s best acts of the 2019 event, with sold out tours soon following across the UK, America and Australia. Major festival appearances came next, including Primavera, Glastonbury, Roskilde and All Points East, plus an invitation to appear on the hallowed UK music TV show Later…with Jools Holland.
Released in May 2019, Amyl and The Sniffers’ self-titled debut album earned the band a spot on the BBC1 playlist plus rave reviews around the world. At home, the band scored Album of the Week on Double J, 3RRR and FBi radio, and hit the spot on the Australian vinyl chart, an ARIA Award for Best Rock Album, and a place on the Australian Music Prize shortlist.
