IT’S HERE ‘TOO BROKE FOR COKE’ THE OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO
NEW SINGLE OUT NOW
Exploding from Melbourne’s underground pop scene comes the DMTeasers with their bubbly, electro-pop lament - ‘TOO BROKE FOR COKE’. BUT It’s difficult to crack the sads as this catchy ear-worm bounces along with it’s terribly Un-PC theme.
Wedged firmly in the mode of bands like CONFIDENCE MAN and JAMIROQUAI, ‘TOO BROKE FOR COKE’ tips it’s hat to those early WEEN hits, with a smattering of a young SNEAKY SOUND SYSTEM.
Leading man, heartthrob and ex-Christian, Jesus look-a-like, ALEX MANSELL brings mad vibes to this song, as writer and lead vocalist, while writer, bass player ALI DAVIDSON and producer SAM SWAIN complete the core of the band.
SWAIN is one of Melbourne’s most sought after young producers after an apprenticeship-by-fire in Melbourne’s Sing Sing studios saw him assisting on recordings by JIMMY BARNES, KASEY CHAMBERS and DNCE. His own list of producer credits is not far behind, taking the controls for Melbourne indie darlings KILNS as well as JOSH CASHMAN, RAT!HAMMOCK, TETRAHEDRA and now The DMTeasers
Renowned engineer TONY ESPIE (Avalanches, Missy Higgins, Treaty Project) also jumped on-board and delivers mixing perfection - exactly what this banging summer party tune needs to connect with the masses.
A life long friendship between the band members has meant they have experienced some pretty destitute share-house arrangements along the way. As MANSELL puts it ‘In the Fitzroy heyday we were true street scum’ while adding... ‘It would have been remiss of us to not pay homage to those former glory days, with a track for the working class heroes of the world’ his tongue firmly in-cheek.
Adrian Alexander, El Presidente GREEN CHAIR TUNES, recalls ‘By pure chance I was at their 1st gig, the energy, colour and entertainment blew me away. I walked straight up to them afterwards... and the rest is history. We are very excited to be working with such committed artists.
