Aussie pop-punkers SoSo are getting ready to drop a new single titled “Yeah Nah” on Thursday, February 25. The latest cut from the Sydney quintet was produced by Stevie Knight (Trophy Eyes, Stand Atlantic, Yours Truly) and mixed by James Paul Wisner (Hands Like Houses, Underoath).
“Yeah Nah” finds SoSo diving into social commentary surrounding Sydney’s lockout laws and drug enforcement policies, blending pop-punk energy with their Aussie larrikin spirit.
New Noise Magazine is proud to premiere “Yeah Nah” below:
On the inspiration behind “Yeah Nah,” frontman Rhys de Burgh states:
“‘Yeah Nah’ originated as a bit of a joke song and ended up a rebellious, energetic earworm. The track is a big call out of the shitty lockout laws that killed so many Sydney music venues, archaic drug enforcement policies and the true enemy of live music – poker machines. Fuck pokies.”
Due to the worldwide pandemic, SoSo played their first live show in November 2020, but have since gone on to support Sydney contemporaries These New South Wales, FANGZ and Down For Tomorrow. Previous singles have been widely embraced by Spotify and Apple Music, and Australian radio stations triple j, triple j Unearthed, and 4ZZZ.
In the coming weeks, SoSo will reveal the accompanying music video for “Yeah Nah” featuring social media personality Frenchy, shot on location at Sydney’s Lansdowne Hotel.
“Yeah Nah” will be available worldwide on Thursday, February 25. Pre-save the single here.
