The Goon Sax
The Goon Sax are James Harrison, Louis Forster and Riley Jones from Brisbane. Still in high school when they made their first album Up To Anything in 2016, their brand of awkwardly transcendent teenage guitar pop took them into end of year lists for BBC 6Music, Billboard and Rough Trade, and earned them rave reviews from the Guardian, Pitchfork, Spin, Uncut, Rolling Stone and elsewhere. According to Metacritic, Up To Anything was the 8th best-reviewed debut album anywhere in the world in 2016.
“Near-flawless guitar pop.” NME
“This is pop music as it should be: simple, unvarnished, young but not world-weary, and ultimately timeless.” The Line of Best Fit 9/10
“Brisbane trio navigates teen psychodramas with the sort of wry reportage that makes Courtney Barnett such a charming indie narrator.” Mojo 4*s
