HUSH HUSH BIZ SINGLE REVIEW
Bottle of Sin
With several singles and an EP behind them, this four-piece from Western Sydney sounds like it’s primed to gate crash its way into the next level of rock notoriety. Avalanche has just released Bottle of Sin, a full-throttle Oz rock assault like you’ve never heard before. The band’s latest EP, Second Hand Band, has generated thousands of streams and sold thousands of physical copies worldwide and has featured in Rolling Stone Magazine, Fireworks Magazine, Tone Deaf, The Music, The Sydney Morning Herald, played on TV on 1700/C31 in Melbourne, and on ABC Radio, i98FM, Hard Rock Hell Radio and many more all over the world. They’ve played alongside the likes of Kingswood and The Poor, and their last three music videos have amassed over 54k views on YouTube and over 120k views on Facebook. The band, made up of the husband-and-wife duo of Steven Campbell (lead vocalist and bassist) and Veronica ‘V’ Campbell (lead guitar), also features Ryan Roma, aka ‘ADHD’ (drums and rhythm machine), and Arthur Divis (rhythm guitar). Together they unleash an onslaught of wild, high-octane rock, evoking the spirit of such Australian rock luminaries as AC/DC, The Angels, Billy Thorpe, and Rose Tattoo.
Bottle of Sin features soaring rock vocals, bludgeoning guitar riffs and a rhythmic pulse that’s as explosive as it is entrancing. As the band says about the inspiration behind the track, ‘I guess it came from the fact that we were finally able to write and play live together again after months of constant lockdowns. Once we could rehearse again, the song came together quickly from riffs we were playing to each other over the phone through lockdown. And the themes of the song were quite fitting for the return of live music and finally being able to go out to pubs and bars and play shows, and party again post lockdown! It’s a fun song you can mosh and drink and dance to, and I hope people enjoy it as they get out and about again!’ As Rolling Stone magazine says, ‘Avalanche is one band you need to watch.’ From the sledgehammer hedonism of the lyric to the unbridled intensity of the performances, Bottle of Sin is set to propel Avalanche into the illustrious rock and roll stratosphere. To quote Joel O’Keeffe from fellow Oz rockers Airbourne, ‘They’re f—ing awesome!’
