Aussie Pop-Punks Just About Done have announced that their third EP entitled ‘I Am Getting By’ will be self-released on 19th October 2018.
With the title chosen to convey change, both personally and artistically, vocalist Samantha McGee explains: “The artwork represents this idea, which is portrayed throughout the EP and into the music videos. You’ll also notice that the medical cross on the nurse's hat, is subtly extended into an inverted cross and this will be touched on in Part 3.” “Part 3?” I hear you ask! With this McGee refers to the video trilogy that compliments the EP: “As each video is released, a new aspect of the story is revealed, until Part 3 where the main theme becomes apparent and a new meaning to the narrative arises. Mind Society cleverly directed the videos so that the ideas represented compliment the lyrics, as well as the overall storyline.” Beginning life as a school band, Just About Done reveal that their ambitions lie in bringing the art back into music, with McGee emphasising that they want to be part of the community to push along:
“Listening to albums from start to finish; attaching music to memories; really being there in that point in time, listening and watching a performance, rather than watching through a screen. We know it's possible.” Stating that they sound like Violent Soho if you “throw a female singer on top”, they borrow from early Paramore and The Story So Far to deliver atmosphere and attitude, in three hard-hitting pop-punk doses that brim with enthusiasm and potential.
