‘Flogs’ marks Leftfield Luxury’s heaviest, yet most refined release to date.

Ballarat garage surf-punk outfit Leftfield Luxury have revealed a new single, ‘Flogs’. Taking aim at pea-brained shit-talkers, the track is unapologetic and leaves no holds barred as it rattles off a list of pet peeves.

Since forming in 2017, Leftfield Luxury have gone from strength to strength. After releasing a string of singles followed by their 2019 self-titled debut EP, the Ballarat punks quickly found a following outside their hometown.

Soon, they were playing support slots for acts like The Chats as well as performing on lineups alongside the likes of Baker Boy, Ruby Fields, Dune Rats and RAT!Hammock at the triple j All Ages Tour and Spilt Milk Festival.

Now, they’re back with their latest single ‘Flogs’, blending elements of grunge, post-punk and shoegaze in their most refined release yet.

“[Flogs] is an ode to the people we all hate. The people who rile up at the droplets of saliva that leave your mouth when you talk. The people with a peanut for a brain which only knows how to sink $12 CC’s and Cruisers at the bar,” said the band of the new single.

The single sees them exploring new sonic territory while remaining true to the sound that has garnered them a faithful following. Gutsier and heavier than anything we’ve heard from them yet, still with a youthful punk spirit at its core, Leftfield Luxury have delivered a double whammy with their latest track.
