‘Amy’ is the brand new single from Short Stack.
For the single the band connected with legendary producer Chris Kimsey, who has worked on – among much else – seminal Rolling Stones’ albums Sticky Fingers and Tattoo You.
It’s a little hard to believe that it was a decade ago that three friends from Newcastle released 40 copies of a self-produced EP called One Size Fits All and kick-started a homegrown pop punk revolution that has transfixed Aussie music lovers ever since. Ten years on, Short Stack have had two Top Ten albums – including a Number One with Stack Is The New Black – three Top Ten singles, a breakup, and now, a hugely popular reformation – all by the age of 25.
Following on from recent Top 15 ARIA single “Dance With Me”, Short Stack’s follow-up ‘Amy’ finds punk rock a whimsical new mood as Diviney explores a more narrative approach to his songwriting.
“The girl in the song’s name is Amy, my friend’s middle name, so there’s a bit of sense to it, but songs are never really about particular people, you rely on the metaphor, and sometimes you come up with a phrase that you like that relates to an experience you’ve had, but then that becomes a part of so many other ideas in the song.”
Short Stack are Shaun Diviney, Andy Clemmensen and Bradie Webb who met on the train to the Hunter School of Performing Arts in Newcastle in 2005. Short Stack were twice named Channel V Oz Artist of the Year and have produced 2 gold-selling albums (‘Stack is The New Black‘ in 2009 and ‘This is Bat Country‘ in 2010), three top ten singles (‘Sweet December’, ‘Sway Sway Baby’, ‘Planets’), an ARIA number one chart award (‘Stack is The New Black‘), and a platinum-selling single (‘Planets’). The group subsequently split in 2012 but reformed in April 2014, delighting the thousands of Short Stack fans around the country.
