Adelaide indie-rock quartet Molly Rocket have today released their debut EP Syrup. The five-track project from these young hopefuls is not as sweet as it sounds, with darker lyrical undertones and grungy guitars inviting chaos.

Featuring the singles “Rabbit Hole”, “Asphalt” and “Methany”, the EP is the band’s first collection of songs since emerging in 2021 with debut single “Kiss You Dead”. By blending their 90s influences with contemporary rock, Molly Rocket deliver a convincing platter of adolescent angst in this impressive offering.


“The most simple summarisation of the abstract alternative rock EP titled Syrup is darkness through a rose-coloured lens,” says vocalist Georgie Evans. “It’s appealing aesthetically and acts as a warm orange glaze atop the noise, and the topics of death, murder, isolation and lost youth. This debut summarises the deeper angst and melancholy underneath Molly Rocket, as well as showcasing their diverse sound which utilises elements from grunge rock, punk rock, Aussie surf rock alongside a pop undertone.”

Syrup was recorded at Depict Studios in Adelaide with the tracks mixed and mastered by Lachie Pitcher (Hindsight, TOWNS). The band have received support from the likes of triple j, Double J and 4ZZZ, as well as supported Polish Club, King Stingray, Teenage Joans and more.

To celebrate the release, Molly Rocket have shared each of their favourite sweet desserts with us.

Georgie – Straight up just whipped cream. I could eat a million spoonfuls of it until I feel sick. I would eat a cake just made of whipped cream, I wish that were a thing. I don’t care about the cake itself. Vanilla goodness. Yum. Yay.

Ben – Churros are my fav. Me and Georgie go out and eat churros constantly. Salted caramel dip as well. Superb. San Churros, sponsor us. Or don’t. It’s churro time.

Joe – I fold when it comes to a classic oven-baked cheesecake, man. Never fails to be hectic.

Liam – Nothing beats a frog cake. Not very DIY, but still a dessert icon.

The Adelaide punks will be hitting the road with The Rions this month as the main support on their Scary Movies national tour, stopping at Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Melbourne and Sydney. You can get your tickets HERE.
