Fresh off recording their debut album, Tug are fine-tuned and ready to melt into the Melbourne music scene. Their debut album; You’re Not Exceptional Man is set for release in the early months of 2018 however, Tug are very excited to be releasing their first single from the album today. Titled ‘Paranoid Black Sheep’, the band reflects that it is a song written about the feeling of disconnection one can sometimes get when overcome by self-doubt.
“The song aims to reassure the listener that practically everyone seems to have their life in order, whilst simultaneously being in a state of self-assessment and subsequent redirection,” quips Tug songwriter Mitchell Peters.
With an incessant groove that stays with the listener for days, and some thought-provoking lyrics prominent throughout the song, ‘Paranoid Black Sheep’ is an impressive way for Tug to burst onto the scene and make sure they are noticed.
Comprised of an incestuous, all-star Side Stare Music line-up with members from Indigo Children, Bears and The Stained Daisies, Tug have already garnered significant attention with their intricate and creative musicianship and unique stage presence. For a band that is still in its infancy, Tug has an impressive rap-sheet of gigs under their belt, including supporting Davey Lane (You Am I), Leah Senior, and The Pretty Littles. Expect big things in 2018!
