News… The Goon Sax Unveil New Track ‘Boyfriend’

Image: Connor Beazley At the minute, if you’re looking for witty slacker-indie then there’s no better place to head to than Down Under. On their last track ‘Sometimes Accidentally,’ Australian trio The Goon Sax showed off their lyrical prowess by channelling their fellow Aussie Courtney Barnett and delving into some quick-fire wordplay.
