Press Club - Endless Motion


Brave, energetic and expansive, the idea of motion has always been central to the Press Club ethos. Having made music together for 12 years, the Melbourne-based punk rock four-piece reject stagnancy, constantly pushing to change and thrive in a scene that largely stays the same. Third album Endless Motion is the ultimate artistic statement about the past three years – a collective and global struggle that has provided the material and circumstances for Press Club to emerge as one of the most exciting and relevant bands of 2022.

At inception, Lead singer Natalie Foster, guitarist and engineer Greg Rietwyk, bassist Iain MacRae and drummer Frank Lees gathered in Natalie’s shed to discover what music they cared about creating, something that allowed them to translate their own experiences to record. That turned out to be fun and fast punk reflective of their favourite genres growing up: emo, punk, ska and indie.

What they created in that shed was a unique sound, fronted by the grainy and heart-felt vocals of Natalie and influenced by Cloud Nothings, Bully, Husker Du and The Replacements. It’s equal parts playful indie rock, punk grit and dreamy alt-rock, balancing the anecdotal and extrospective. Across their first two albums – the critical success of the adolescent commentary Late Teens (2018) and the frenetic freedom of Wasted Energy (2019, #4 on the AIR Album Chart & #15 on the ARIA Australian Chart) – Press Club proved themselves to be a thrilling new voice in global DIY punk rock scene.

A DIY authenticity is central to everything they do, with Natalie making most of the band’s imagery and Greg producing their music, the band have remained independent with the exception of signing to cult indie label Hassle Records (The Used, Petrol Girls, BRUTUS) for the UK and Europe.

The highly anticipated, self produced, album couldn’t have been made in more different circumstances than their second, which was written on the road touring and recorded in a six-day window in their calendar. Fun and speed were the order of the day. Plans were in place to record Endless Motion in Berlin in 2020 but when the pandemic shut the world down it offered Press Club a chance to reconsider all their proposed material.
