The long awaited debut album, TRY + SAVE ME from Bec Sandridge, released in 2019, deep dives into topics of identity, anxiety, coming out, and takes a tongue in cheek look at Sandridge’s upbringing in a pentecostal Christian household.
Recorded at Melbourne’s Aviary Studios with Oscar Dawson (Holy Holy) and Gab Strum (Japanese Wallpaper) Sandridge sought to combine punk with theatre, seeking out vacuum cleaner-esque club synths and dirty jutting guitars sounds. The album sees the team implore megaphones, cowbells and woodblocks, after opening with a sample of Sandridge’s Grandma Grace calling “I think it’s quite unnecessary”.
TRY + SAVE ME features singles ‘ANIMAL’, ‘I’LL NEVER WANT A BF’, ‘EYES WIDE’ and ‘STRANGER’, all of which were added to triple j rotation and supported at community radio nationally. ‘STRANGER’ saw Sandridge team up with Tanzer to deliver a stunning accompanying video clip, speaking of the collaboration Sandridge said “Tanzer has this beautiful ability to create the most stressful sexy nightmare that you could possibly imagine.”
