InfoCD & LP8th April 2016

Chapter Music is excited to release Up To Anything, the debut album by Brisbane trio The Goon Sax. Louis Forster (son of The Go Between’s Robert Forster), James Harrison and Riley Jones are all 17-18 years old. They make pop music. They have refined tastes - they love the Pastels, Talking Heads, Galaxie 500, Bob Dylan and Arthur Russell.

On Up To Anything they pull off the almost impossible, capturing the awkwardness, self- doubt and visceral excitement of teenage life, while still in the thick of actually living it. Goon Sax songs are both immediately charming and deceptively deep - Sweaty Hands examines a point in a relationship where you're seen at your worst, while Telephone addresses the heartbreaking realisation that nothing you offer your crush is enough.

Chapter signed The Goon Sax in 2015 on the strength of an unsolicited demo, the first time that has ever happened in the label's history.
