Aussie trip-lords Psychedelic Porn Crumpets have released their new single “Pukebox,” off their forthcoming album, SHYGA! The Sunlight Mound, out February 5 through Marathon Artists.

Receiving its worldwide premiere on BBC Radio 1 with Annie Mac, “Pukebox” captures the essence of SHYGA! The Sunlight Mound and sits as a great insight into the new era ahead.

Recorded between songwriter Jack McEwan’s home studio and Tone City Studios in WA, “Pukebox” follows the release of additional singles “Mr. Prism” and “Tally-Ho,” and sets the bar for how tight the band’s sound has become over their last few years of incessant writing and touring.

On the inspiration behind “Pukebox,” McEwan states:

“‘Pukebox’ was the first song I used as a reference while creating the flavor for the record. I’d had the idea for the track for a while, but I never thought it fit the style of our previous albums. I wrote the first part in first person, talking about my time at home drinking moonshine and wondering who else was doing the same.

Then I compared that in the second verse with a secondary version of myself who I wrote about as a character, a little bit lost, waking up with a hangover in random cities trying to find a meaning while it sailed right past me. Both unaware of each other’s existence while slowly going mad through repetitive consumption.”

Capping off last year with a blistering spin as part of Triple J’s Like A Version series, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets are ready to remind folks that although they (like everyone else) were forced to take a pause from their usual programming in 2020, they weren’t resting on their laurels.
