Sydney band The Khanz have released their latest single ‘Prescription Culture‘ lifted from their new EP ‘Natural Instinct‘.
Dedicated to ‘every medicated kid and every desperate adult that can’t find a way out’, The Khanz negotiate the idea that ‘Kids are being turned into junkies by their own parents, often with the connivance of teachers and schools – and it’s not for the kids’ benefit.’ As a result the jungle pop enthused track ‘Prescription Culture’ is not only an ironically bouncy tune, but comes with a pretty sweet video clip featuring everybody’s favourite – clowns with drugs. The fun and energetic nature of the drums and jangly guitars is contrasted with the heaviness of the lyrics, but somehow the Khanz manage to traverse this well, and you are left with a song that is not only a cracking listen, but also delivers a message.
The Khanz have also released several tour dates to celebrate the ‘Natural Instinct’ EP release, playing the UNSW Roundhouse with Sticky Fingers, the UTS Festival headlined by Bluejuice and The Bondi Winter Music Festival. Be sure to catch these guys live, as they have been putting on a epic show ever since their Oxford Art Residencies, and with a new EP it is surely going to get better.
