The Goon Sax - Up To Anything album
The Goon Sax are James Harrison, Louis Forster and Riley Jones from Brisbane, Australia. Still in high school when they made their ﬁrst album Up To Anything in 2016, their brand of awkwardly transcendent teenage guitar pop took them into end of year lists for BBC6, Billboard and Rough Trade, and earned raves from the Guardian, Pitchfork, Spin, Uncut, Rolling Stone and elsewhere.

Forster and Harrison started the Goon Sax when they were still in high school. In December 2016, Billboard included the album on their critics' list of the Top 50 albums of the year, putting it in 49th place. Billboard described the album as a "gorgeous collection of slacker-default rock".
The Goon Sax are putting more thought into second album We're Not Talking, out Friday (Sept. 14). The songs are more ornately produced, more varied in tone and tempo and more confident in general. We had three totally different versions of each song," Harrison explains of the additional effort behind Talking. That "more stuff" also includes the first lead vocals for Jones, who sang backup throughout Up to Anything and now takes the mic solo for the lovely acoustic Talking ballad "Strange Light," while splitting the main vocal with Forster on the delicate mid-tempo numbers "Losing Myself" and "Til the En. "The first album, it was terrifying," Jones explains of her first dalliances into singing. Like, every time we were practicing I would go into the other room with the microphone and practice because I was so afraid of singing.
