Workin’ Hard or Hardly Workin’ with B.Cools

The other day, we were neck-deep in work and one of the boys came thru with a box o' brewskis. Then we saw that the postman dropped off a very special delivery. The folks behind Barney Cools out of Sydney, Australia have been enjoying that sunshine we over at GRØSS have been missing all winter (their summer) long. That delivery was a new kit that the homies had sent us and whaddya know, with it came a weekend of sun. We hopped up to the roof with some frosty ones and a camera to kick off what hopefully will be a string of sunny Saturdays for the boys.

Break time in full effect.

The oversized signature fit of these B.Cools pieces makes for a super casual and relaxed fit—perfect for lounging like lizards. More photos to come.

‘Ego’ by Arpier = A Potent Concoction of Chill Pills and Vocal Ketamine

Evoking what can only be described as the feeling one gets while walking down the street to the perfect timing of an auspiciously relevant song, Arpier's new song has peaked our trippy interest with distinctly mellow guitar riffs and stress melting lyrics. They also happen to be some of our mega homies down in Brisbane.

The boys:

  • James (vocals/bass)
  • Liam (guitar)
  • Robert (synth/drums/vocals)

will be playing their dreamy sounds to the lucky folks attending the upcoming Big Pineapple Music Fest in Sunshine Coast, QLD, Australia. In the past, Big Pineapple has featured artists like John Butler Trio, The DMA's, Hermitude, and Opiuo.

Press play to be under a shady tree; on a scorching day; while wearing crocs; and drinking iced tea.

'Ego' song lyrics:

Verse 1
All defense, no sympathy,
Ego leaks in all we bleed,
My eyes deceive what’s in front of me,
But I'll keep them closed —my blind jealousy.

All that I long for and all that I need,
My minds playing tricks on me—forcing me to see,
All the things I’ve done yeah,
All the things I'll be,
Trapped inside my mind,
My Pseudoephidream.

Verse 2
Maybe if I leave,
I can find some peace,
Lie beneath the trees,
My thoughts in bliss relief,
Can't spend too much time here
Lost inside myself,
Anchored to the shore, (man)
Can't see no-one else.
