Ticking absolutely all the right boxes, Melbourne indie punks Batz thrash out a banger of a new single with 'Darlin’', which comes on the heels of their first EP 'Night Terrors' (recorded with Alex Markwell of The Delta Riggs) released last October.
The fivesome - Christina Aubry, Dali Platt, Jakob Kagan, Jim Stirton and Joshua Aubry, who were originally a three-piece when formed in 2015 - build on a brash swagger, great guitar sound, an infectious chorus and Aubry out front sending out the vocal vibes.
Says the frontwoman of 'Darlin'': “The song is basically about any given situation where another person might think they’re the one with the upper hand and therefore begin to undermine you. 'Darlin’' is pretty much about making them realise that you’ve seen through the cockiness and that you are in fact stronger, smarter and overall more powerful than they gave you credit for.”
We'll go with that.
