If Body Type’s debut record Everything Is Dangerous But Nothing’s Surprising was an exuberant and furious declaration of dominion, then their swift follow-up Expired Candy is all about revelling in the space they’ve carved out. It’s sweet, acidic, tough and undeniable all at once, and speaking to the forthcoming release Body Type reveal that “Expired Candy is filled with hope, love, and danger, dancing with delicious uncertainty. In pursuit of joy we dreamed up songs about mothers, sisters, dogs, nans; family tantrums, forward motion, falling in love, platonic or romantic, with someone or self. Heart breaks, tooth will shatter, but she’ll be there when it really matters. Flirty, feral and defiant, just how we like it. From our wild heart to yours, Body Type.”
Including singles in the just released ‘Weekend’ and the Double J playlisted ‘Holding On’ and ‘Miss The World’, Expired Candy is a euphoric, lawless rock record, characterised by unfaltering intensity. Oceanic yearning mixes with sly humour. Guitars spit and swell and slice through harmonies. Moments of elation and bizarre imagery are wrung from the monotony of every day. Vocals knot together, producing ecstatic, slanted melodies. An album about not being so certain that confinement and desolation lead to a dead end. Instead, stagnation may serve as the perfect breeding ground for joyous bewilderment and an inflamed imagination. Like the stale confection of its title, Expired Candy is a blistering listen because of the way it transmutes gloom into resistance.
Their Australian Music Prize-nominated debut album Everything Is Dangerous But Nothing’s Surprising including highlights ‘Buoyancy‘ ‘The Charm’ and ‘Sex & Rage‘ across the 11-track record sought praise far and wide: Rolling Stone, The Guardian, NME, DIY, Frankie Magazine, Clash, Dork, The Line Of Best Fit and more, as well as radio support from all corners of the country landing Album of the Week placements across 2SER, FBi Radio, SYN, Edge Radio and RTR FM and much more.
