[VIDEO]   Weak Boys "Good One Sydney"   Premiere via Noisey. From the official presser (Facebook post): "Here's the thing. Sydney's got a lot of problems. A lot of people want to live in Sydney, and a lot of those folks don't have swags of cash or even care about going clubbing or even care about your band (or Weak Boys). Sydney should be kept open for everybody - indigenous folks, refugees, working class folks, queer folks, wom*n, young people, the homeless. For the folks getting booted from Miller's Point, to wom*n fleeing violence who are faced with the prospect of a closed shelter and sleeping rough, to babies being deported to concentration camps. People who are expected to leave their homes and communities and safety because someone with more money wants their spot. Access to liquor and the jobs that it creates is one thing - people lives being ruined by state violence and corporate greed is another, and we should be making a fucking lot of noise about that too. GOOD ONE SYDNEY."   #WeakBoys   2016-02-16

[REVIEW]   Mess + Noise: Weak Boys "Weekdays/Weekends"   by Doug Wallen "You'd expect a band that teams Banham (former leader of the plenty self-deprecating No Through Road) up with Yates (a member of slacker indie-rock veterans Dollar Bar) and Banham's Disgusting People bandmate Craig Lyons to do this kind of thing perfectly, and they do. Out-dolewaving every would-be dolewave band around, Weak Boys turn their lumpy drums and wagging guitars to themes of prickly universalness. ‘Unrequited Diane Keaton' pulls real feelings out of a fantasy lark, and anyone who's ever left their hometown can relate to the Adelaide exit that is opener ‘South Australia'. The most relatable song of all could be ‘Settled', a spell of wishful thinking that lays out Banham's straight-faced plans for becoming a better person but also can't resist equating owning a butcher knife with somehow being grown-up."   #WeakBoys   2015-02-11

Soundly Sounds: Top 10 Australian Albums of 2014   Weak Boys "Weekdays/Weekends" at number 2. Bless you Ryan Saar. "A diverse smorgasbord of guitar-pop and mope-rock, 'Weekdays/Weekends' is fuelled by self-deprecation, glistening humour and a catchiness that rivals Taylor Swift. It is fantastic in so many indescribable ways, an encapsulation of the Australian, or at least Sydney, lifestyle in much the same way The Go-Betweens probably did back before Y2K. From the ode to Rice Is Nice’s Julia Wilson, to the plight of the hungover, Diane Keaton-pining miser (read: everyone), “Weekdays/Weekends” was both the most underrated release of 2014, and one of the best."   #WeakBoys   2014-12-23

Soundly Sounds: Top 20 Australian Songs of 2014   Weak Boys "Hangovers" at number 2. "'Hangovers' sort of set the staple for what my 2014 was, along with many other budding attendees of whatever Inner West domain Weak Boys have been fortunately dominating. I’ve listened to this song more times than I've asked for a jug of Resch’s at the Lansdowne. My intimidatingly large beer belly nods in agreement.I actively set out to write a song about something other than drugs and ended up at dogs. I don't have a dog but I try and take every opportunity I can to hang out with other people's dogs."   #WeakBoys   2014-12-18

Mess + Noise: Weak Boys "Weekdays/Weekends" Track By Track   "Chris: Most of the songs I write are about getting high. Partly out of laziness, but also because I think that it's a really important part of life that is often seen as bad behaviour instead of the perfectly human and natural thing that it is. I actively set out to write a song about something other than drugs and ended up at dogs. I don't have a dog but I try and take every opportunity I can to hang out with other people's dogs."   #WeakBoys   2014-11-07

[REVIEW]   Soundly Sounds: Weak Boys "Weekdays/Weekends"   by Ryan Saar - "It's hard to imagine Weak Boys not becoming iconic in some way or another, it's just a matter of how big. As one of the most complete and fulfilling albums in recent Australian lore, I strongly urge, nay command thee, to buy this album."   #WeakBoys   2014-10-28


Weak Boys "Weekdays/Weekends"

Vinyl + digital   #WeakBoys   2014-10-24

Noisey: Stream "Weekdays/Weekends" the Debut Album for Sydney's Weak Boys   "Weak Boys are like the indie balladeers of Sydney's inner west. Their observational jangle pop that falls somewhere between Big Lizard in My Backyard era Dead Milkmen, the self effacing pop of Jonathan Richman and fellow Sydney band Smudge, casts a keen eye over life as a early 30-year-old in Enmore and surrounds. These are songs about drinking, dogs, running out of wine, dealing with landlords, working overtime and drinking some more."   #WeakBoys   2014-10-21
