Sticky Fingers – How To Fly

The five piece Newtown misfits are misspending their youth while we watch. And it’s as colourful as that review suggests: a melodic, mega-hectic, mash of psychedelic, pop and roots. Music to throw shapes to. THE Sydney based five piece, have been touring for two years, to increasing crowds and are delivering a refreshing vibe to Australian music. The band began their rise when drummer, Beaker and bass player Paddy Fingers, met busker Dylan Frost one night in early 09 outside the Coopers Arms hotel in Newtown. Dylan, fresh from N.Z., was on the streets with his guitar busking outside the pub. “We met him,” Patty says, “when the Coopers Arms bouncer started telling us we should give him some money.” Frost’s melodic sense brings the Kiwi spirit and melodic lineage to the band. Frost, the youngest member of the band (the rest of the band are 22), has 21 years of life and a hundred years of heartbreak in his voice. And the band surround it in textural and psyche-y, atmospheric melodies punched out by the Sticky Finger’s rhythm section’s blunt sound scapes. ​In the short amount of downtime between tours in April 2012 and the start of June Sticky were back hard at work getting the songs together for their next release. From these sessions came Caress Your Soul the bands first single from the album of the same name and second single Clouds & ​Cream. Both got high rotation and charted. And now … the band’s debut album Caress Your Soul has just been released – March 2013 – to a great response. It features the 3 radio hits including Caress Your Soul, the song that encapsulates their psychotic alt pop and sinister surf dub sound. The first EP (the ironically titled), Extended Play was released late 2010. And their first release, in April 2010, they went into Megaphon studios and re-recorded Inspirational, Juicy Ones and Murderous Nerves, the best songs from their earlier demo’s. Next was a limited edition Sticky acoustic recording, in amongst the musical ghosts of the Annandale: Happy Endings. Sti Fi had been promising to make it since they toured nationally with Donavan Frankenreiter and in January 2012 finally gave it to its fans. Happy Endings scored great support around the country and internationally, picking up a stack of JJJ and Unearthed play in the months following its Oct release and June 2012 and introducing Sticky to a wider audience. Psych/folk and pop/rock/roots. If the Clash, Pink Floyd and Arctic Monkeys are three beads of sweat that meet rolling down your back, Sticky Fingers are at the bottom licking it up.

Sticky Fingers – How To Fly Lyrics:
I take the brakes off
And I ride
And then the day starts
Oh to get high
I chase the devil oh yeah yeah yeah yeah
In to the sky
Cause hes the one who taught me
How to fly

I forget my name
Cause its so insane
C-c-c-complicated
Oh I forget my name
Oh I forget my naaame~
Oh cause its so insane
C-c-c-complicated
Oh I forget my

I take the brakes off.
And ride..
Oh then the day starts
To get high

Oh I forget my name
Cause its so insane
C-c-c-complicated
I forget my name
Oh I forget my name
Oh I forget my name
Cause its so insane
C-c-c-complicated
I forget my name
See… I drink the venom to release the pain
Chain smoking
I suffocate
Cause we be rebels
The beat untamed
Sticky fingers
Dont forget the name
Cause its so insane
C-c-c-complicated
I forget my name.
I forget my naaame.
Cause its so insane.
C-c-c-complicated.
oh I forget my.
oh I forget my.
