Inspired by Leopold Von Sacher-Masoch’s 1870 novel, Venus In Furs, Sex Beast is delirious with sexual desperation and perversion. An unashamed chronicle of pure masochism, both in music and lyrics, it constantly builds, releases and builds again giving each listener no chance in hell to come up for air.
Recorded in a blacked out shed on the outskirts of Northcote, you can literally hear the sweat dripping from their bones as the band deliver their most concise effort yet. Classic Australian guitars, pulsing drums, filthy bass and a voice shouting everything you wish you could.
“Mistress, make me your sex beast”, frontman Oisin implores as he explores what it would be like to give yourself to someone so wholly that you surrender all ego, dignity and self respect. With a single this assured and an upcoming debut full length record on the way, it seems that the only thing standing in the way of Horace Bones being the name on everyone’s lips, is time.
Having successfully staked their claim as one of the most savage live bands in Melbourne, Horace Bones will now be taking their ravenous live show all across this big brown land this coming May on their ‘Sex Beast National Tour’.
