NOT A BOYS NAME says, “I was in a constant state of momentum. Always writing new material and rejecting anything that felt old - even if it wasn’t. I forced myself to listen to the songs I had written over the last 2 years, and I found music that I was genuinely excited about. Songs that I really wanted to show the world. “
Dave sent the original demo of ‘The Internet Sucks’ to producer Simon Berckelman who convinced him to release the track. After adding a face melting guitar solo from Kirin J Callinan the track was ready to see the light of day.
The song came at a time when Dave was in the midst of a separation, while NOT A BOYS NAME was coming into fruition. Existential themes of love, sexuality, screen addiction, and longing for something more are all explored within the lyrics of ‘The Internet Sucks’.
NOT A BOYS NAME says, “The Internet Sucks is a song I wrote about screen addiction and modern relationships.”
NOT A BOYS NAME has previously toured with Olympia, I Know Leopard and headlined his own east coast tour. He has released singles ‘Raise The Alarm’, ‘Hazard Perception Test’ and ‘Cut It Off’, receiving support from triple j, Radio Adelaide, RRR, FBi Radio and notable streaming playlists.
