Aussie punks Amyl And The Sniffers find inspiration in the scuzzy '70s punk scene punctuated by the bratty, girlish vocals of frontwoman Amy Taylor. On today's featured track, they channel the Ramones with their bass-heavy ode to infatuation.

"'Got You' is about that feeling you get when you first start seeing someone and you're excited to see them, no matter what shit they got. You just see them at the pub and it feels like the most exciting thing in the world, like you're so lucky they're even there. It's definitely one of the 'sweetest' songs on the album, and less punky. It was kind of inspired by Split Enz."

"We worked with Melbourne director Triana Hernandez for the video and we decided to make it less like a love song and more cheeky. We wanted to play with the power dynamics a bit and turn 'I got you' into 'I literally own you', just to make it a bit more dark. It's obviously not a healthy relationship but that kind of thing is easy to slip into, too."
