Sydney garage punks Straight Arrows are back with a new single called 'Petrified' - the first track off their forthcoming LP 'Rising'. The accompanying video was shot by Owen Penglis and Royal Headache’s Lawrence Hall, and is edited by Straight Arrow’s Angela Garrick. The video and song go hand in hand down a tunnel of fuzzy garage pop - even some humour is thrown in at one point, with Owen (wearing a hard as nails leather) bitch-slapping some dude with what looks like a piece of meat attached to his shoulder. Yep, weird or rock'n'roll? You decide. 'Rising' is out 13 June on Rice is Nice Records and you can catch Straight Arrows in the flesh when they embark on their 'Rising tour'.
