Melbourne punks Amyl and the Sniffers’ new song, “Got You,” is perfect for any rock fan in the honeymoon phase of a new relationship.
“I don’t think about the things I have / And I don’t want anybody else,” vocalist Amy Taylor sings on the chorus, to which her band chant, “I got you!” The track’s less than three minutes of propulsive drums, taut bass and fast punk guitars—you’ll be wanting to replay it the second it’s over.
“‘Got You’ is about that feeling you get when you first start seeing someone and you’re excited to see them, no matter what shit they got,” Taylor told the FADER, which premiered the track and its accompanying video. “You just see them at the pub and it feels like the most exciting thing in the world, like you’re so lucky they’re even there.”
“Got You” was somewhat inspired by New Zealand rock band Split Enz, she added, and is “one of the ‘sweetest’ songs on the album, and less punky.” If a more “punky” sound from Amyl and the Sniffers appeals to you, keep an eye out for their self-titled debut full-length, which is out May 24.
And watch the “Got You” video, which features a twisted storyline where Taylor kidnaps her bandmates and treats them as her pets:
