‘Self Care’ is the first glimpse of Lazertits’ forthcoming album.
Melbourne punks Lazertits are back with their first single in three years. A mantra for self-reliance that will leave you hot and heavy, ‘Self Care’ is the first taste of their long-awaited sophomore album, which is set to drop via Roolette Records on a date yet to be announced.
“Masturbation is the new meditation,” opens ‘Self Care’, introducing Lazertits’ signature brand of tongue-in-cheek ‘brat punk’ right off the mark. An ode to taking care of yourself, in every sense, the single looks at the loneliness that goes hand-in-hand with self-isolation from a playful perspective that’s definitely NSFW.
“Don’t need Tinder when I’ve got my fingers,” remarks guitarist Lexi Love-Dack against a wall of blistering garage-rock riffs. Hard and fast, the melody matches the rapid-fire of cheeky lyrics before reaching a climactic instrumental breakdown.
Shot in isolation and entirely self-produced, the film clip sees the four-piece carrying out various forms of self care, from home workouts to sheet masks – along with drinking lots of wine.
Fun, sassy and relatable as hell, the Lazertits we know and love are back and kicking things up a notch.
