about

Pregnancy, the new Melbourne band fronted by dual-lead vocalists Zac Denton (The Ocean Party, Ciggie Witch) and Ashley Bundang (Ciggie Witch, Totally Mild) wish to introduce you to their debut record Urgency.

Eschewing the rolling, lazier delivery of the aforementioned parenthesized bands, Pregnancy reside closer to the fog machine, in the nightclub scene of an 80s flick, Denton and Bundang all the while interweaving their affable voices and drawing the listener deeper into the dancefloor.

The projectile rhythm section (featuring the formidable abilities of Liam Halliwell on bass, also to be found in the above groups) is peppered with prickly guitars of the post-punk variety and chiming synths, adding extra breadth to Denton’s tales of characters lifted from op shop paintings (‘Letters’, ‘Mirror’, ‘Way Out’) and also those found in the real world – more specifically in Denton’s formative regional home in the Riverina district of southern-New South Wales (‘Avoid’, ‘Hard as Nails’, ‘Crickets’).

Lead single ‘First Kiss’ explores themes of independence and progress; atop a well-made bed of synths and anthemic guitar leads, Denton sings of challenging times that have ultimately lead to growth and empowerment.

On the follow-up single ‘Hard as Nails’, the focus is turned to Zac’s grandmother – a stubborn farmer from Tarcutta, NSW who, despite suffering a body that’s “nearly out of steam, hands always stained, constant aches”, refuses to leave her property and move to the big smoke, closer to aged services.

Pregnancy is Ambrin Hasnain, Ashley Bundang, Dominic Kearton, Liam Halliwell, Tyler Daglish and Zachary Denton
