Wasted Energy approaches the microphone through a lens of extrospection. It examines the negative behaviours in the world around us and how we’re all learning to exist in today’s ever-evolving socio-moral landscape. Wasted Energy is broadly about change, and life’s watershed moments that change its course. These shifts are laterally represented lyrically and sonically in many of its songs. Sweeping about-faces and musical departures are an expansion of the musical fibre that make up the Press Club repertoire.
"From the writing and recording to the design and video making... I couldn't be more proud of every single part of this album." Natalie Foster
Wasted Energy follows on from acclaimed debut album, Late Teens, which thrust the group into life on the Australian and European touring circuits.
With a hard-earned reputation for relentless touring, Press Club celebrate the release of Wasted Energy is coupled with the announcement of a massive Australian tour slated for later this year which will see the band play shows in NSW, VIC, ACT, QLD, SA, TAS and WA, shortly after their second assault on Europe and The U.K for 2019.
“For some reason being on the road is a tranquil place for us. We’ve all always been pretty intrepid people. To be able to spend another stint in Europe this year, after the first one was so flattering is brilliant. Everything is different from place to place. New cities, new people, new music scenes that operate in completely foreign ways. The one thing that seems to be a unifying constant is music. I can’t wait to hit the tarmac again.” - MacRae
