Triple J’s Tommy Faith described 100’s latest single “Just Us” as “[a] savage, literate piece of punk”. A statement that rings true about the band as a whole. 100’s approach to song writing and performing live is relentless and unforgiving whilst still leaving room for self reflection and an unparalleled rawness.
The enigmatic Sydney 4-piece have gone from strength to strength this year. Since releasing their visceral single “Just Us” earlier in 2019, the band have lived up to their name and are showing no signs of slowing down.
The band are self aware as they delve deeper into their sound, drawing influences from a multitude of genres spanning from country to post punk fused with the angst driven rock of early 90’s acts; The Replacements and Fugazi. Drummer, Paris Grant also finds inspiration from his side hustle as a trap & hip hop producer for some of Sydney’s most exciting up & coming rappers.
2019 saw the band release a 7” and tour with Nick Nuisance & The Delinquents, tour nationally with Pist Idiots, earn the nod of approval from FBI’s SMACs (Best Live Act, Next Big Thing nominations), hold down a 5 week residency at The Lansdowne before hitting Bigsound and landing themselves on the highlight lists of Richard Kingsmill, Declan Byrne and Happy Mag to name a few.
Amongst the chaos of touring they’ve managed to build a studio in Sydney’s inner-west where they are currently writing the follow up to 2018’s EP, “Cortisone”.
