DJ Poindexter recently caught up with Australian indie-pop trio, The Goon Sax, when they stopped through SF in support of their latest release, We’re Not Talking. Tune in on Friday, November 16th @ 11AM to hear the interview.
The Goon Sax are James Harrison, Louis Forster and Riley Jones from Brisbane, Australia. Still in high school when they made their ﬁrst album Up To Anything in 2016, their brand of awkwardly transcendent teenage guitar pop took them into end of year lists for BBC6, Billboard and Rough Trade, and earned raves from the Guardian, Pitchfork, Spin, Uncut, Rolling Stone and elsewhere.
New album We’re Not Talking shows how much can change between the ages of 17 and 19. It’s a record that takes the enthusiasms of youth and twists them into darker, more sophisticated shapes. Relationships are now laced with hesitation, remorse, misunderstanding and ultimately compassion.
