Amyl and The Sniffers
Amyl and The Sniffers
Amyl and the Sniffers are a grimy pub rock band from Melbourne, Australia. Amy Taylor (vocals), Bryce Wilson (drums) and Declan Martens (guitar) are former housemates who formed the band, wrote a handful of tunes and released their debut EP, Giddy Up, all in a span of twelve hours. Completing their line up with Gus Romer on bass, Amyl and the Sniffers took their cues from a diverse mix of genres including pub rock, Aussie punk, country and western and rap rave. They set out to have as much fun as possible and scared up a whole lot of fans along the way.

Amyl and the Sniffers’ second EP, Big Attraction, was released by cult US label Burger Records in February 2017, kicking off a stellar year. Growing buzz made them a hot tip at Bigsound, while the band was added to cult Victorian festival line-ups including Meredith Music Festival, Cherry Rock and Boogie. In November, the band joined the legendary Cosmic Psychos on a national tour before capping things off with a sell-out NYE show at legendary Melbourne venue, The Tote.

2018 kicked off with a bang, with the band invited to support Foo Fighters on a leg of their Australian tour. The Music named Amyl and the Sniffers a ‘Band to Watch in 2018’ and put them on the cover, while rival publication Beat Magazine made them a limited-edition centerfold poster. In late January, Giddy Up/Big Attraction was rereleased on vinyl through Homeless Records, selling out the first pressing in preorders. Both PBS FM and Triple R FM made the record ‘Album of the Week’ and the band sold out multiple headline shows on the east coast.

Meanwhile, the Amyl buzz started to travel. Limited edition vinyl copies of Giddy Up/Big Attraction flew out the door London’s hallowed Rough Trade Records, pushing Amyl & the Sniffers into the Top 40 of the UK Vinyl Charts. The band will make its international debut at The Great Escape festival in May, followed by headline shows in London that are already selling fast, before flying out to the Los Angeles to join King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard on a 20-date tour of the United States.

Amyl and the Sniffers debut album is due out later this year.
