BEC SANDRIDGE ANNOUNCES NEW
SINGLE & TOUR DATES
‘I’LL NEVER WANT A BF’ OUT FRIDAY 6TH OCTOBER

 

‘I’ll Never Want A BF’ is Sandridge’s most unapologetic and meatiest work to date. Nodding
somewhat to the eighties, Sandridge’s theatrical vocals spill over the top of fuzzed out guitars, a
gritty synth bass and hard hitting disco hi-hats. Produced by Burke Reid (Courtney Barnett, The
Drones) at Melbourne’s Soundpark studios and mixed by Sandridge’s previous collaborator Tony
Buchen (The Preatures) in LA. Sandridge heads out on tour in support of the new single with
dates in Australia, Europe and the UK.
“The song title says it all. I’ll never want a boyfriend… Without a doubt this is the most
autobiographical song I’ve ever written. My Mum gave my number to a customer (a grandfather)
to give to his grand son, when I had a girlfriend. It was pretty delegitimizing. ..Sorry Mum (I love
you)” Sandridge says of the track.
A nomadic pop/punk logomaniac, Bec Sandridge has a guitar swagger reminiscent of Prince,
and the delivery of new wave icons like David Byrne. Her previous singles ‘In The Fog, In The
Flame,’ ‘You’re A Fucking Joke’ and ‘High Tide’ all landed high rotation on triple j, 3RRR, FBi and
community stations throughout Australia alongside international airplay in Europe.
2016 was a pivotal year for Bec – after winning the triple j Unearthed competition to play Yours
and Owls Festival she signed to Wollongong label Farmer and the Owl to release her In The Fog
EP. As well as play a myriad of shows supporting the likes of Montaigne and Cub Sport and
nabbing festival slots at Festival Of The Sun, Fairgrounds and BIGSOUND.
At home on the stage, Sandridge has traversed the country in 2017 with tours alongside The
Rubens, Highasakite, The Naked & Famous and Mitski. Also, appearances at Groovin The Moo,
The Hills Are Alive, Big Pineapple Music Festival, Mountain Sounds Festival and a welcome return
to Yours & Owls Festival, with The Plot still to come.
For the upcoming Australian dates Sandridge has partnered with LISTEN to present the shows.
“Because shows should always be inclusive and safe spaces. I want to ensure that everyone has a
good time and that everyone feels welcome and celebrated. It means that behaviour like
sexism, racism, homophobia, transphobia and ableism simply aren’t tolerated which is important
and cool. “
