‘I’ll Never Want A BF’ is Sandridge’s most unapologetic and meatiest work to date. Nodding somewhat to the eighties, Sandridge’s theatrical vocals spill over the top of fuzzed out guitars, a gritty synth bass and hard hitting disco hi-hats. Produced by Burke Reid (Courtney Barnett, The Drones) at Melbourne’s Soundpark studios and mixed bySandridge’s previous collaborator Tony Buchen (The Preatures) in LA. Sandridge heads out on tour in support of the new single with dates in Australia, Europe and the UK.
“The song title says it all. I’ll never want a boyfriend… Without a doubt this is the most autobiographical song I’ve ever written. My Mum gave my number to a customer (a grandfather) to give to his grand son, when I had a girlfriend. It was pretty delegitimizing. ..Sorry Mum (I love you)” Sandridge says of the track.
A nomadic pop/punk logomaniac, Bec Sandridge has a guitar swagger reminiscent of Prince, and the delivery of new wave icons like David Byrne. Her previous singles ‘In The Fog, In The Flame,’ ‘You’re A Fucking Joke’ and ‘High Tide’ all landed high rotation ontriple j, 3RRR, FBi and community stations throughout Australia alongside international airplay in Europe.
