Coinciding with the news, the band has shared the first single and clip. Co-directed by Ed Fraser and Cash Savage, ‘Keep Working At Your Job, is a wiry post-punk elegy to the grind of late-stage capitalism that’s blunt, yet deeply compassionate. “I think you’re just like me”, Cash Savage sings/speaks, “Broken like the rest of us. Keep it all inside, keep working at your job”.

A pillar of Melbourne’s music and queer communities, Cash Savage has spent the past decade making tough and tender rock’n’roll with her colossal band, The Last Drinks: Joe White (guitar), Rene Mancuso (drums), Kat Mear (violin), Nick Finch (bass), Roshan Khozouei (keyboards), Dougal Shaw (guitar) and Ed Fraser (guitar). The Last Drinks have toured internationally with sound engineer Nao Anzai, who co-produced the album with Cash Savage and Nick Finch.

Their legendary live shows are an overwhelming cacophony of emotion and sound, with magnetic frontwoman Cash Savage at the centre of the storm, exhorting the energies of The Last Drinks with mastery and panache. A cathartic, communal experience that refuses to give the audience an easy ethical bypass, but challenges listeners to ask themselves the hard questions and step up.
