“Smash Repairs” is the swaggering debut single from Sydney newcomers Sal & the Mandas. The track, which explores themes of mental health and recovery with humour and wit, is a strong opening salvo from a band fresh onto the scene.
Influenced by the likes of Queens of the Stone Age and The White Stripes, the band deliver a sound that is punchy, powerful, heavy and just a little bit different too. The inclusion of a horn section is a nice touch (I love a good horn section!) taking the song up just that extra notch. It’s the kind of song you just know will deliver live; and with a live show that promises loud guitars and inflatable salamanders, it sounds like theirs is a gig well worth turning up for.
Sal & the Mandas are Sally Davis, Ollie Quirk and Oscar Joe, check out “Smash Repairs” below.
