Over the past 9 years, the phenomenon of men approaching the women of the Last Drinks with advice prefaced by “The gig was great, but…” has become a running joke that’s not funny anymore for Cash Savage and her bandmates.
‘Pack Animals’ calls out this behaviour as a manifestation of toxic masculinity and how it affects everyone, regardless of gender, the clip is a comical take on a serious issue. “Lately I’ve been looking at stock images and thinking about how the actors are set up in ‘real life’ situations that don’t look like real life at all, and we just accept all these photos in our everyday world,” says Cash recently told Noisey. “Also, the statement’s in the lyrics, and I fucking hate acting. I wanted to create something that was watchable, that didn’t require a whole lot of acting talent from myself.”
“…the latest single from the upcoming Last Drinks record Good Citizens, is a rollicking, uneasy, pub-punk track that calls bullshit on all the men who have tried to give Savage advice she didn’t ask for over the years. It’s a corker of a track…” Noisey
‘Pack Animals’ is the second single from Cash Savage and The Last Drinks’ forthcoming album Good Citizens, out September 21 on Mistletone Records via Inertia.
