Don't be too shocked when I introduce yet another aussie band. You may gasp. I know it’s getting a bit out of hand. At this point my musical garden is beyond fecund with sun kissed flora in the form of Australian born tunes. Sticky Fingers is composed of five rad lads by the names of Dylan Frost, Seamus Coyle, Paddy Cornwall, Beaker Best, and Freddy Crabs. Their evolutionary musical journey can oddly be compared to the movement of a cloud. Some of life's most beautiful moments are spent watching clouds change shape in the sky. A slow morphing of dancing particles creating intangible shapes only formed by our lively imaginations. In such a way their music continuously changes its shape. Through this their ability to forge experiences through each song creates those beautiful cloud gazing kind of moments we don't have nearly enough of.
Beyond this, Sticky Fingers further shines away from the shadows of musical identities. Shifting beyond neatly packaged genre identifiers to make room for their own assortment of what they have termed “sticky flavours”. That’s actually really clever and I’m totally into it. Now, for another odd but satisfying comparison. Let's take a moment to imagine a waterfall diverting its flow of water from a roaring thunderous foaming energy into a gentle ripple of rainbow bubbles. The flow of their music from song to song and album to album replicates this movement. Along the way they connect waterways of musical creations from all corners of the world. It is a beautiful fusion of eclectic experimentation that is both familiar and foreign all at once. Wild combinations like this are my absolute jam.
Raw and raspy emotional vocals and instrumentation wrap around each song. Each note manages to envelop the universe in music that is felt deeply when listened to. I recommend cloud gazing and listening to the sounds of Sticky Fingers at the same time. Amplify your life with endless beautiful moments or else what is really the point of this human being thing.

About The Curator - Maria Fish
You can most often find Maria in her garden humming along to an eclectic playlist titled “Life’s a Garden, Dig It” and of course tending to her beloved kale. Shout out to Joe Dirt for the wise words and fantastic playlist name. This garden is located on the island of Kaua’i at her childhood home surrounded by tropical fruit trees and flowers.
