From beginnings in a Budgewoi garage at 16 to their explosive debut album 'Stack Is The New Black' at just 20, Short Stack quickly made a playground of the Australian landscape and were one of the biggest names in the country by the late '10s. Beyond ascending to #1 on the ARIA Album chart with their debut record, the band claim credits including Channel V's Oz Artist Of The Year (twice), a coveted Rolling Stone Magazine cover, two certified Platinum records and tens of thousands of tickets sold throughout their career.
2021 sees Shaun Diviney (Vocals/Guitar), Andy Clemmensen (Bass/Vocals) and Bradie Webb (Drums) re-unite with new material in the form of 'Burn You Down'. Diviney explains that the track is part a reflection on the breakdown and rebuilding of the band and part observation on the world around them.
"'Burn You Down' is about the duality of being young and feeling both indestructible and fragile at the same time. I don’t think the world needs another happy pop song at the moment, because I don’t think the world is a happy place at the moment. This song comes from a place of anger and destruction, about wanting to tear something down and begin again."
On reforming and creating new music together, Shaun shares: "Everything about how we approached this was different... where we used to find a lot of pressure to deliver something specific, we approached this with the thought that this is our chance to be the band we've always wanted to be."
