WATCH: Amyl and the Sniffers Make Triumphant U.S. TV Debut With “Hertz”

Amyl and the Sniffers

Amyl and the Sniffers appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers Wednesday night and demanded they go on a manic Sunday drive through the countryside with a frenzied performance of “Hertz. 

Amyl and the Sniffers are making their current trip to the States count. With a packed touring schedule that sees the band visiting each coast multiple times and a coveted spot on the Coachella line-up, singer Amy Taylor and company confidently ripped through their debut American TV appearance as if they’ve been there before. 

After a lively, yet somewhat inaudible, count off from Taylor, guitarist Dec Martens and bassist Fergus Romer break into the unison, distorted, spasmodic riff that relentlessly pushes most of the song. It’s pedal to the floor punk rock from then on out, but somehow without the spreading of anarchy through the city streets or the pent-up aggressions of suburban youth. Taylor wants a car ride. She wants her hand in your hair and the wind in hers, fresh country air and sandy beaches. 

These aren’t topics that necessarily make you want ro run madly into the pit and jump off a subwoofer onto the masses, but combined with a Ramones-esque sing-along chorus, Lars Frederiksen style guitar solo, and the confidence to try and pull some of Mick Jagger’s chicken wing moves, you’ll find yourself surprisingly amped up.
