Single Premiere: Dole Manchild Share New Hyperactive Single "Happy Couples!"

Following their frantic debut EP Draconia! last month, the Melbourne-based garage punk band Dole Manchild have shared their new single "Happy Couples!," another scuzzy trip down the rabbit hole loaded with militant noise and tongue in cheek agitation.

After releasing their debut EP Draconia! back in September, the Melbourne-based garage punk five-piece Dole Manchild are already back with a new spiraling and fuzz-soaked stomper called "Happy Couples!"


The new single is an ugly beast that blends fractured shards of arty garage punk with a menacing sense of experimentation. While its a rapid-fire of blown-out and chaotic noise, the demented cut expands on the band's DIY charm that diverts expectations and bludgeoning just when you’ve been caught off guard. With a tight knack of blistering guitars, pounding drums, and angsty vocal ramblings, Dole Manchild meander infinitely.


Speaking about the new track, bandleader Dan Blitzman said "Here's three-minutes of an absurdist and vindictive self-reflection on jealousy, all the things you don't currently have and the FOMO we've experienced in our second year of lockdown."
