The legendarily named Tropical Fuck Storm have released a brand new song called ‘Braindrops’, partnered with a gloriously trippy mud-racing and play-dough filled video. Needless to say, our week has been made.

Just a few days ago, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard dropped their brand new metal album, and now Tropical Fuck Storm has returned to please, making this one hell of a week for Australian music.

‘Braindrops’ is a slow burner that erupts into utter chaos, with lyrics that can only be admired as incredible, I mean just read this.

“you’re like a snake with its arse up it’s head man, stop thinking / it’s enough dealing with this heat and stink /

school bus, street pus, the crushed skulls of watermelons / flowing down a drain the colour of Indian ink”

This is what we came for. But the glorious lyricism doesn’t end there. Try this one on for size:

“and when all’s said and done / you’re just a massive cunt / so stop acting like your problems / all jumped out of a cake”

Anyway check out the song for yourself, I could keep gushing over it’s bittersweet lyricism all day.

It’s been about a year since the last full release from Tropical Fuck Storm, A Laughing Death In Meatspace, which was considered our best album of 2018.

With a cover that is forever ingrained into our memories (as all good covers should be,) and a tracklist that remains to this day pretty flawless, we’ve been absolutely itching for some new music.

It seems the wait won’t be long though, with the band already having released an absolute monster truck’s worth of singles to keep us sated.

The new album BRAINDROPS is slated for an August 23rd release, which is like, four days away, so it looks like we know what the weather forecast will be. (see band name).
