Their debut single, We Never Win, begins with a hypnotic drum coda that slow-builds into a crashing-guitar-backed chorus of exorcising proportions as frontman Stef Bernardi’s howled vocals call one and all to arms.

Taking influences from Neil Young to Pavement via Blur, the Cubicles ride the rock-ready road of the marginalised and discontented.

The critics say – “Brilliant band name, brilliant title, brilliant tune. Dark, riff-heavy, melodic rock with a definite punk edge.” Total Guitar

The plug – Debut single We Never Win is out on Jan 23 through Young & Lost Club.
