Melbourne Septet The Bon Scotts are releasing a 2-for-1 single and touring once again. Throughout February, March and into April, the band will hit the road to celebrate the release of the double A-side ‘Let’s Do What The Catholics Do | Here Comes Summer’. The 16-show tour will take The Bon Scotts to South Australia, Victoria, Queensland and New South Wales: not a small feet for such a large band! The Bon Scotts play a unique brand of folk-pop full of sarcastic rebellions, sweet melodies, arresting percussion, resonant catch-cries and sing-along choruses. Theirs is an infectious blend of playful cynicism and youthful fancy, laced with irony and hype, unconventional hooks and a distinct, eclectic sound that has won over audiences nationwide. ‘Let’s Do What the Catholics Do’ is a sonic departure from The Bon Scott’s norm. With horn-laden grooves, septuplet bridges, a sneaky time change and a New Orleans style play out, the song once again sees the band skillfully defying notions of plain and normal. The second single off the double A-side release, ‘Here Comes Summer’ is an anthemic and care-free song of praise for the season; of sun, fun, sweat and sexual innuendo, laced with a healthy amount of tongue in cheek – and in other places too, so it would seem. From their passionate recordings to their intense live show, The Bon Scotts demonstrate they are superb songwriters, musicians and performers. Amongst this collection of multi-instrumentalists, you’ll find a charismatic union of found sounds. Rickety rhythms, acoustic pounding and bellowing choruses are pulled into line by front man Robert Zimmerman’s endearing satirical voice, examining the hypocrisy of popular culture, what it means to be disillusioned with society and when love can’t conquer all.
