After shocking us with last year’s story of the washed up Rugby League star and the incredible live show to match, You Beauty have brought us their second pub-rock opera, a likely story about an online romance scammer who falls in love with his prey.
If anyone, this band know how to take their audience on a journey through the suburban Australian heart. Skipping between dodgy eHarmony profiles, A Current Affair exposés and conjugal Jayco visits as easily as the tunes move from shimmery pop to 90′s fist pumpers and touching ballads, Illywhacka is part hairbrush sing along, part audio book and part extended dissertation on where humanity lives in the post-internet world.
To ensure the all-important singalong at their incredible live shows, the band have included 3000 words of lyrical content on the back of this beautiful vinyl packaging. This release sees the first in a new Sydney/Melbourne collaboration between Rice is Nice and BSR, aimed at encouraging kids off the sofa and onto the dancefloor.
Brand new You Beauty album out NOW! Follow up to the bands debut album 'Jersey Flegg'. 'Illywhacka' is a new concept album about an online romance scammer who falls in love with his prey. Can he win her heart after playing with her head? Or will the ultimate sentence for his crime be something far lonelier than a grey cell?
Sydney's You Beauty are back with a hot new single, Same Damn Thing.
Wildly adult contemporary while infused with the band's last remaining deposit of youthful exuberance, Same Damn Thing sounds like the first sunny day after a week-long spring time drenching; it's like getting 20 bucks out of that scratchy Nan sent on your b'day; it's a simple, affordable pleasure contained in three and a half minutes of walking-pace, shimmering pop music.
You Beauty’s debut album Jersey Flegg is a pub rock opera about life picking you up like a sack of wheat and grinding you into the dry turf and baked earth of a suburban footy pitch.
Jersey Flegg follows a 90’s rugby league legend who has to face himself and his past after he has his heart broken by a children’s TV starlet. As he watches his game fall apart and gets booted off the team, you’ve gotta wonder whether he’ll ever get out of the gutter and OFF THE BENCH.
This awesome record from You Beauty available on vinyl - the way it should be.
Jersey Flegg is a tale of of a 90's rugby star who has to face the hurdles of rugby life and love after he is left broken hearted and gets booted off the team. Will he ever make it OFF THE BENCH?
Get amongst it or go home.
