About to jump back on the road, The Lockhearts have dropped their new single Goddamn Pretty from their forthcoming album, Americana Doom Fuzz (slated for release in early 2018 through Golden Robot Records).

An instantly infectious down-home groove, Goddamn Pretty showcases the “Americana” side of the bands’ forthcoming record, gliding in with a laid-back swagger and bursts of rich vocal harmony in the choruses reminiscent of the Eagles or Tom Petty.

Goddamn Pretty I wrote around a trip to California and New York, where I was listening to a lot of Tom Petty, The Eagles and Fleetwood Mac, so I wanted to capture that Californian summer love feeling. The song is about gleefully running away from all your troubles to find moments of joy and falling in love with American strangers.” – Tim Meaco, The Lockhearts.

Formed in 2012, drawing from the members’ shared love of Joe Perry’s line of hot experimental hot sauces and classic Aerosmith, The Lockhearts hold claim to the longest running weekly residency in Sydney, the worst chilli vodka ever made, have toured Australia extensively, and created their own annual sell-out festival “Old Mates Block Party”. Goddamn Pretty gets into the roots of the bands’ Americana influences, delivering a lush taste of what’s to come from their debut LP.

The Lockhearts are fronted by Tim Meaco on vocals and guitar, Sam Sheumack on guitar, Jameel Majam on bass and Steve ‘Woodie’ Woodward on drums.
