Sydney Hip hop outfit Five Coffees get political with new single "A Little Revolting”
While Sydney-siders are constantly trying to fight for their right to party, hip-hop outfit Five Coffees have released a track dubbed ‘A Little Revolting,’ reflecting the current frustration with the Government.
Everyone has a voice and Five Coffees are using just that. "A Little Revolting" is a political tune about the Australian climate, a track to emphasise that the younger generation is not being heard or represented at all.
With infectious beats and down right relatable lyrical content, the title is a play on words reflecting the disgust at Aussie politics, and a casual, almost lazy call to arms to our peers.
“The lyrics touch on the steadily rising rent of the city, the lock out laws and the ongoing lack of a treaty with indigenous Australians,” said Nick Knowledge.
“Realisation that yes, silence is golden, but on the hand, duct tape is silver,” he said.
Five Coffees will also be launching their single ‘A Little Revolting’ at Spring Street Social in Sydney on 15th July.
Five Coffees was formed by Conservatorium of Music students Dean Adams and Guy Elsom in 2009. Their debut gig was at the Sandringham Hotel in Newtown under the name unknown.com. Their debut EP Flatline charted at No. 6 on the Australian Community Radio Charts.
Feature track Johnnie Walker has had over 2000 plays on Triple J Unearthed. Five Coffees has been international feature artist on New York hip-hop radio station One Love. Former Basement booker Andrew Masterson said Five Coffees were "by far the best band" he discovered in Sydney.
Featuring live horns, MC, guitar, bass and drums, Five Coffees mix traditional funk beats with hip-hop vocals. They are currently working on their debut album due out in July 2017. Drew Bisset is producing the album who has worked closely with several Sydney legends including Declan Kelly.
