Biography

Sounds like Janis Joplin & Angus Young had a baby and baptised it in Bourbon”. – Rolling Stone

Dallas Frasca have truly discovered their unique sound.” Tone Deaf

Don’t be mistaken, Dallas Frasca is a band and not just named after the lead singer. Like Blondie and PJ Harvey that came before them, it is clear that namesake front woman Dallas and guitarist Jeff Curran are the driving force of the Melbourne based trio, which other members rotate.

The unconventional songwriters are two guitars, vocals and a beast behind the kit. They fit somewhere in between blues riffed The Black Keys, and the incredible full-throated wail of Janis Joplin. Having no bass, the drums are integral to the sonic massive-ness that fits in-between the mechanical style riffs, their songs are catchy, huge and you can feel the truth in their tales.
They won Triple J’s Light Your Fuse and then in 2013 they signed to French label, Verygroup (Bjork, Soja, Baby Metal, Gamma Ray) after they gained attention from placing 3rd in the International Song-writing Competition (over 16,000 entries). In 2014 they released their controversial film clip for single, You Are Beautiful that went viral and gained over ¼ million views and appeared on film, Embrace. Their album, Love Army hit the Top 30 ARIA Charts in Australia in 2015, and their song, Success Is The Best Revenge from the 2015 release, was the theme song as the worldwide sync on the popular TV show, Bondi Ink. A collaboration with Ugly Kid Joe was released on the Californian bands latest (1st release in 19yrs) album, Uglier Than They Used To Be that hit #10 charts on BBC charts in the UK.

The band continues into their 10th year as strong and self-determined as ever, the Melbourne Aussie rock legends have so far teased fans with their fearsome new track Wasting Time, the first taste of what’s to come from Dirt Buzz.

2016 sees the band launch their self-owned and run independent label, Spank Betty Records of which their first release will be their new E.P, Dirt Buzz out September 16th.
They have over 800 shows and 8 international tours under their belts but their best is about to come with their new EP, Dirt Buzz.

Lyrics

ALL MY LOVE IS GONE

Written By: Dallas Frasca / Jeff Curran / Pete McDonald

Figure out the riddle, Don’t be fooled
There is more behind what you see
Figure out the riddle, Cause when he lied
My world was blown, I nearly died

ALL MY LOVE IS GONE * 3
and it feels so good to be free again...

Try and steal the lime from my light
Sabotage my life for your fame
You’ll never cleanse your shit filled veins/brains
Identity crisis is your name

Lying won’t make you look good
Everyone always comes undone
Clench your fists and puff your chest right out
Manipulate, we know you’re about

ALL MY LOVE IS GONE * 3
and it feels so good to be free again…

Only in my own time did I find that your desire
Had crossed into my lake that had dried
Everyone sees you’re full of doubt
Kiss me with your lips I dare you, go on do.

Figure out the riddle
Don’t be fooled
There is more behind what you see

Figure out the riddle
Don’t be ruled
By what you’re told, cause I’m not sold

Figure out the riddle
When I opened my eyes
The truth was often disguised

Figure out the riddle
Cause when he lied
My world was blown,
I nearly died..

ALL MY LOVE IS GONE (repeat)
And it’s time for me to be free again...

ONE MAN WOMAN

YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL

Written By: Dallas Frasca,jeff curran

YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL
THE WAY YOU ARE

I BROKE THE MIRROR, I COULDN’T FIGURE
SMOKE WAS A KILLER, CLOUDING MY MIND
HOW WAS I SO BLIND?

YOU STABBED MY BACK, JUDGEMENT I LACKED
INTIMATE ENEMIES, IN BED WE CLIMBED
HOW YOU LOOK SO FINE?

YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL
THE WAY YOU ARE

I TURNED THE PAGE, BROKE FREE OF THE CAGE
THE BILLBOARDS YOU SEE, & THEIR BLANTANT LIES
HAPPY SACRIFICE

WHAT IS YOUR FEAR? WITH NO BURDEN FROM PEERS
BE YOURSELF NO MATTER WHAT THEY SAY.
FUCK WHAT THEY ALL SAY

YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL
THE WAY YOU ARE

YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL
THE WAY YOU ARE

Wasting Time

Written By: Dallas Frasca,Jeff Curran,Josh Eales

WASTING TIME

HIGHLIGHT OF A LOWLIFE, I’M HOLDING MY HEAD
CRACK ANOTHER BOTTLE, FORGET WHAT YOU SAID
BRAIN IS IN A TANGLE, HARD TO BEGIN
SO I GOT DRUNK TO, FORGET WHAT I DID

WE’RE WASTING TIME

I’M KICKING UP DUST YEAH, BURNING WILD IN MY VEINS
THERE’S A MONSTER IN MY CLOSET, NEED A REMEDY I DO
I KNOW WE GOT 28,000 DAYS
THIS SPIRITS GETTING STRONGER, FROM LAST NIGHTS SIN.

WE’RE WASTING TIME

Check Bang

Written By: Dallas Frasca,Jeff Curran

CHECK BANG

Found myself panicked, hanging from a cliffs edge
I was holding on by one hand
Got grabbed by the scruff of the neck, and heard;
Girl, tough decisions, got to be made.

CHECK BANG.. whoah
THE SHIP IS GONNA SAIL, IT ONLY TAKES A GUST TO START UP A FLAME
CHECK BANG.. whoah
I CAN SIT IN WONDERLAND BUT
NOTHING’S GONNA HAPPEN WHILE I’M SITTING ON MY HANDS

I got woke by the sound of them alarm bells
The kind that’s ringing out in your head
From above I saw me standing at the crossroads
Forgive me sorry, and thank you for your love….

CHECK BANG.. whoah
THE SHIP IS GONNA SAIL, IT ONLY TAKES A GUST TO START UP A FLAME
CHECK BANG.. whoah
I CAN SIT IN WONDERLAND BUT
NOTHING’S GONNA HAPPEN WHILE I’M SITTING ON MY HANDS

WE CAN WALK TOGETHER FRIEND
WE CAN WALK TOGETHER HAND IN HAND

CHECK BANG.. whoah
THE SHIP IS GONNA SAIL, IT ONLY TAKES A GUST TO START UP A FLAME
CHECK BANG.. whoah
I CAN SIT IN WONDERLAND BUT
NOTHING’S GONNA HAPPEN WHILE I’M SITTING ON MY HANDS
