Hot out the oven, Brisbane's Born Joy Dead return today with 'Sourdough', a brand new single for daydreamers and brunch enthusiasts everywhere. There's no mucking about either, they'll take to Black Bear Lodge to launch this freshly baked tune in just under three weeks.

A delicious, chewy 'F.U.' to the daily grind, 'Sourdough' is a unique result for the band who recently changed up their writing style, demoing together as a group for the first time. "The band is taking on a more organic songwriting method now and as a result it feels as though we've created something really special and more personal to us all," says front man (and former Hungry Kids of Hungary member) Ben Dalton.


Saver, Squirrel, All
Keeper of the moths
I can't afford a poncho
To shield you from it all

Working for that Sourdough

A world when we're asleep
A world when we're apart
I will become a craftsmen
to engineer our loss

Working for that Sourdough

You are my gold

Keep from getting old
And bury all you got
Wine from the cellar
Shame she thinks it's better

Save all you got and live happilly
Plucking some buds from Doughboy creek

Work work work



released August 12, 2016
Recorded, Mixed and Produced by Miro Mackie at Plutonium Studios
Assistant Engineer - Aidan Hogg
