Uncle Skunk – “Aussie Tender”


NYC project Uncle Skunk enthrall with their latest single “Aussie Tender,” whose harmonious and hook-minded rock sound conjures a nostalgia reminiscent of The Replacements.

Releasing ahead of a new EP this fall (which doesn’t include this track), “Aussie Tender” grabs from the get-go with confident vocals and “remember when,” reflections. Twangy guitar goodness drives into the irresistible “all the songs are wasted on you,” hook, bolstered further with a dreamy vocal send-off into the verses’ reprisal. “Aussie Tender” is a throwback alt-rock slice of ear candy from Uncle Skunk.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of July 2023’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Rock.
