With their latest release the Australian pop-punk band tackle the dangers of alcohol
The female-fronted five-piece hailing from Adelaide has been making waves recently with their 2020 debut EP ‘Friends’ winning Best Punk award, Best Release, and Best Group at the 2020 South Australian Music Awards.
2021 has seen the band expand on their following garnering support from Triple J, signing to South Korean record label ‘Sound Republica’ and representing Australia at the APaMM (Asia Pacific Music Meeting) in Ulsan, Korea.
The name Wing Defence comes from a position in Netball. “It’s actually meant to be the least needed position – the position that goes first if you have to leave someone off the court,” lead vocalist Skye Walter expains. “It’s also the least valued and people don’t notice them as much. They really are the unseen guy that’s always there if you need – right on the edge of that circle when you’re in strife. All the netballers know what I mean.”
Their latest intoxicating single ‘C4 Miles’ tackles the impact alcohol can have in your life and the clarity that change can bring including becoming healthier both mentally and physically.
Backed by explosive drum beats, driving guitar riffs and Skye’s striking vocal performance, which all culminates in a refreshing track filled with punchy melodies and well-crafted lyricism.
Wing Defence was formed by Skye Walter and Paige Court in 2018 and the band quickly became one of Australia’s most exciting new exports, performing and winning praise at huge national festivals such as BIGSOUND, Groovin’ The Moo and Laneway Festival, as well as on stage supporting the likes of Polish Club, The VANNS and more.
