Following on from their sold out 7” ‘Billy,’ Spoilsport Records are stoked to announce ‘Bravo!’ the debut full-length from Melbourne post pop quintet Eggy. To celebrate the announce, Eggy have shared the first taste of the album with single, Johnny Whoop. Listen here!
Johnny Whoop is a charging romp through free-form expression, as playful percussion and chunky riffs propel the song with cheerful menace. Blistering fuzz and plonky piano sit below Monk’s vocals, as each melody melts and falls after each other in steady motion. Both locking into and softening the fractured edges of this 3 minute charger.
Speaking with Monk of the song’s lyrical nature, she notes its quizzing analyticism. “It’s about introspection, retrospection, and the process of repositioning your perspective”. With ‘Johnny Whoop’ being named after the famed children’s riddle, this puzzling nature is a clear penchant for Eggy, as they dare each listener to “hear my rambles, take a gamble, mix the message, untie”. Every sonic clue edging us toward solving this puzzle, whilst leaving us to ask whether our introspective focus was the point of it all?
Johnny Whoop is out now! Available on all digital platforms. The album ‘Bravo!’ is slated for release on November 13. Pre order HERE
