Mac Demarco

Mylk explain the life of a bad luck magnet in new single ‘Not My Fault’

The lovable Melbourne indie rockers from Mylk hone their inner Mac Demarco on the single, particularly through the use of idiosyncratic vocals and colloquial charm. 

Inspired by a simple melody, the track about being a bad luck magnet is indisputably cheeky, undeniably catchy, and an all-around banger. 

Lead vocalist of Mylk Nathaniel Peacock, both excited and relieved to release the tune, says: “We love the song… hopefully it gets stuck in people’s heads”.

The song, aiming to be energetic and fun, is not meant to be taken seriously.

The tongue-in-cheek music video for the single is the perfect match. The clip combines “A bunch of small sketches where different events occur that are seemingly ‘Not My Fault’,” says Peacock.

The lads treat every live performance like their last by ensuring the gig is a fun and safe environment for all.

“The shows give everyone a memorable experience and an excuse to shake [their] booty,” say Mylk.

Nathaniel Peacock (lead vocals, guitar), Harry Bohmer (lead guitar), Julian Addati (bass guitar), and Ewen Stewart (percussion, backup vocals) have cracked the code to making a laid-back banger, and we are keen to say the least about what’s up next.

Harley Young & The Haymakers’ New Indie Bop Is The Essence Of Aussie Summer

It’s the sound of getting sunburnt during a game of backyard cricket, even after you’ve slipped, slopped and slapped. It’s the sound of your dad knocking back a stubby of Tooheys New on the back verandah as the sun goes down at 8pm. It’s the sound of watching seagulls maul each other on the beach as you chuck your leftover fish & chips in their general direction.

Harley Young & The Haymakers’ freshie ‘Barina Jean’ is a breezy indie rock hymn that’s got Aussie summer written all over it, from the endearingly ocker twang of its dual male/female vocal passages to its charmingly mundane music video packed with quintessentially Straya’n visuals.

Bright guitars skip merrily along to a clapping rhythm on the snare in this infectiously sunny bop, as frontman Harley Young’s lyrics drip with locality and romantic nostalgia, referencing everything from TV Hits Magazine to the Bruce Highway.

Produced by John Willsteed (The Go Betweens) and following on from their 2015 album Flinders Parade, the Brisbane sixsome’s musical drought-breaker marks the first cut of their upcoming LP Little Songs For Big People, which is set to be released (on vinyl, no less) this March.

Stay tuned for national tour dates to come, but for now you can pour yourself a chilled glass of January jangle juice courtesy of the delightful ‘Barina Jean’.
