Firstly, if you haven’t already listened to Stick Together, the latest single from The Regime, stop what you’re doing and go listen to it now. The track is an irresistibly sultry, genre-bending gem that we’ve had spinning on repeat ever since we first laid ears on it.
So, fresh off the track’s release, we caught up with the band to chat all about it, their new music video, and what the future holds.
With a new single and music video hot off the press, we caught up with Sydney-based outfit The Regime to chat all about it.
HAPPY: Hey guys, how’s it going? What are you up to at the moment?
THE REGIME: We were stretched to our limits as the global pandemic attempted to divide us, we just kept our thoughts on the one and breathed deep in good faith.
HAPPY: Have you picked up any new hobbies in isolation?
THE REGIME: Isolation forced us into self-reflection, into a period of creative gestation, taking a knee from the party and turning within.
HAPPY: We’re loving the new single! How does it feel having it out there in the world?
THE REGIME: The feeling could be described as taking off a shoe but laced too tight, freedom and release.
HAPPY: It’s got a real strong sense of camaraderie. What inspired this element of the song?
THE REGIME: Relief and realisation of the majesty of Brotherhood, ’tis but a gentle reminder of the power of our unity, for when we walk as one our love is multiplied and our fear is divided.
HAPPY: The new video is amazing too. Could you walk us through how this came together? Who was involved?
THE REGIME: We let the ideas roll on this one. We argued, we ranted, we wrestled with reason. But a lesson learned is the message of the season. We used what we could, reached for what once was and got what we deserved, not to forget why we’re here, this is a place of forgiveness.
HAPPY: Tell us a bit about your new Stacey Bros product. Who hatched this genius idea?
THE REGIME: Ions ago the odds were against us, darkness divided us but the light was our shepherd, from the womb of time the family was born, such gifts are our family, to be treasured and restored.
HAPPY: When will we be able to get our hands on our own pair of Stacey Bros?
THE REGIME: 567 King and The Stitch up Sydney.
HAPPY: Are there any plans for a live return post-COVID?
THE REGIME: The Regime remains on its collision course with destiny, as night falls on these uncertain times we remain fit and healthy, eager to ride.
HAPPY: Cheers for the chat!
