Sydney duo BESTIES in collaboration with Between You & Me deliver ‘two wrongs’; a dynamic Pop-Punk ballad that bridges the gap between BESTIES’ signature irreverence, and Between You & Me’s melodic sincerity.
The track comes with the news of their signing with UK based Passion Eight Records ahead of the band’s upcoming SOLD OUT national tour with internationally renowned Aussie Punkers Between You & Me, kicking off on September 30th.
Produced in house by BESTIES’ guitarist Nat Sherwood and written by the duo, the track has a soaring chorus where BESTIES’ vocalist Max Pasalic and Between You & Me’s Jake Wilson dance and harmonise over Sherwood’s larger-than-life arrangement.
Borrowing cues from modern Pop and Hip-Hop production in the verses, two wrongs details a love story at the end of the world — where two outsiders meet and wreak havoc before falling in love, set to the backdrop of falling bombs and burnt out cop cars. “We wanted to write the soundtrack to a rom-com set during a global cataclysm. It’s Love Actually meets Day After Tomorrow” says Pasalic.
two wrongs will debut live on September 23rd at BESTIES near SOLD OUT Wollongong headliner before being performed nationwide on Between You & Me’s SOLD OUT ‘Sh!t Yeah’ tour with support from BESTIES and Grenade Jumper.
