A great review from on our EP Confidence.
They are back with their sophomore album, and the title tells it all. This band oozes confidence, both in their incredible musicianship and their fresh take on the punk vibe. These songs will hit home with their listeners as the band continues to find its way in the indie music scene. We think they have the potential to make it, and look forward to hearing what comes next.
Recommendation: Go get this one, especially if you love great rock.
Based in Melbourne,Australia
From 1981 – 1989 Assassins honed their skills around the pumping Melbourne pub scene, developing their distinct Rock edge. It was only in 2015 that Craig, Andrew and Eddie’s paths crossed per chance and Assassins sparked a new beginning. Now, having released their debut EP, Alive Again, in July 2017 the band are releasing their new EP Confidence.
The band commenced rehearsing and writing new material drawing from their very different journeys in life. The agenda was always to move forward and not look back as new sounds and life experiences flowed into the Assassins, creating a mature force that recognises the fundamentals of raw Australian rock and can be felt throughout the four tracks of Confidence. Assassins’independent roots remain at the core of their tried and true sound with playing live an absolute life priority.
Assassins’ music has been described as an honest, exuberant, ‘wall of guitar sound’ with a proto-punk rhythm section. The vocals stand on the shoulders of the sound with lyrics that draw from lived experience the ebbs and flows of life.
