Rock group Body Type today announce their second album Expired Candy out June 2 via Poison City Records together with their latest single ‘Miss The World’. LISTEN HERE + PRE-ORDER EXPIRED CANDY LP HERE.

Body Type assert there’s no time like the present and speaking to its imminent release, they reveal “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.”

WATCH: ‘Miss The World’ (Lyric Video)


Following their run of shows with Fontaines D.C. earlier this month, the first peek of Expired Candy arrives with ‘Miss The World’. Born out of their time during COVID, ‘Miss the World‘ is a pummelling lament, concerned with citizens’ unquestioning compliance and the ascent of tyrants, told through pre-teen anarchists, bichon frises, and a drum beat based on a Gwen Stefani song. Lead vocalist and guitarist, Sophie McComish shares, “Yeah, yeah, on face value this is a COVID song. But more than that, it’s an ode to the realisations, personal and collective, that occurred during that time. Realisations about society, culture, values, the things that matter, the parts we play. At the end of the day, the world is totally absurd and many things make very little sense when you think about them too hard. But we gotta squeeze these little brains of ours and do the thinking, realise the realisations. Complacency is dangerous, passion is contagious.”

Miss The World’ is the first taste of new music from the band since the release of their independently released, Australian Music Prize-nominated debut album Everything Is Dangerous But Nothing’s Surprising. Featuring tracks like ‘Buoyancy‘ ‘The Charm’ and ‘Sex & Rage‘, the 11-track record is a sharp, and invigorating listen packed with gentle contemplation and righteous fury. The praise was far and wide, from Rolling Stone, The Guardian, NME, DIY, Frankie, Clash, Dork, The Line Of Best Fit and more, as well as radio support from all corners of the country landing Feature Album across 2Ser Radio, FBi Radio, SYN FMEdge Radio and RTR FM.
