The Lazertits is a lyrically daring, you can call it wicked, Australian all-girl punk band composed of 5 artists. The five-piece garage punk powerhouse were friends first before anything else with just the passion for food, music and a dream to be on stage.
That explains a lot about the chemistry that holds them together. They performed for the first time at a friend’s New Year’s Eve festival which was supposed to be a one time thing. This was not to be the case after they received incredible support from family and friends to go on with music. Their sound must have been infectious!
The band’s first record single was Gender Studies released in 2015. It boldly explores the world of education, corporate and the place of feminism in all that. They are obviously feminists who are exploring their abilities and talents and exposing this journey through music.
The best part is that they are having fun at it. The band has since shaped its sound into the genre of alternative rock and punk with very direct and edgy feel to its music. This bold representation and delivery is what put them on the spot and this is what they intend to go with for as long as it identifies with their audience. They also have this unique ability to adapt their sound to what resonates with the crowd. This makes them very versatile in the massages of their craft. This has helped them to gather a huge following in Australia and particularly in Melbourne.
In 2017 their single Lil Sister did so well on the billboard charts in Australia and attained a number i spot on Amrap Metro Charts for three weeks in a row. While performing the single, they sold out multiple venues in a line up with some reknowned Rock and Punk bands such as The Courtneys and Spiderbait.
‘Not Punk, Per se’
They wrote, recorded and released their first album;- ‘Not Punk, Per Se’ 100% independently on the 3rd of November 2017.
It is composed of 9 songs which respond to being pigeonholed or branded as something before being given the opportunity to prove yourself.
It’s a fiery lash-out for a need of freedom and individuality. The album begins with a manic thrasher Yeah Nah’ which slings hard truths at patriarchy.
Other mentionable songs in the album include Chery Flavor’, ‘New Friend’ and ‘M8house’. They are full of surf- inspired guitar goodness that fills the listener with high energy punk.
