Nascent Australian duo F-POS have announced their arrival onto the Australian music scene in a big way, sharing their aptly-titled debut single “Classic” today.

Premiering on triple j’s Home and Hosed program overnight, the duo – made up of Paddy Cornwall and Taras Hrubyj-Piper – have shared a track which sees them launch into the public eye with a bang, with “Classic” serving as an infectious showcase of their collective influences.

As per a press release, the pair first met after Cornwall had been ejected from class, with the duo soon connecting over music. While Hrubyj-Piper later left for India to meditate in a Hindu Monastery, the two artists later connected and moved in together. Soon, a makeshift studio was erected, and in just 30 days, the new musical outfit had created a significant body of work, with the artists establishing a collective as they invited others to play, sing, and collaborate in its genesis.

Now, F-POS have shared their debut single, with the Dann Hume-produced “Classic” being described by triple j’s Declan Byrne as boasting “spacey futuristic sounds, some punk, and some Gorillaz influences”.

This combination of sounds – complemented by the addition of vocals from Trinidad-born athlete-turned-artist Goldfang, and Moody Beach, aka Sydney-based singer-songwriter Melissah Mirage – result in the infectious reggae-influenced jam that you hear today.

An exceptional introduction to the outfit, it currently remains unknown when more music will arrive from F-POS. However, both Cornwall and Hrubyj-Piper hint towards the release of a full record in the near future, which aims to showcase more of the self-described “cyborg punk, dirty clash, and Playstation rave” sound that the pair deliver.

In the meantime, F-POS are looking ahead to continuing their collaborations with like-minded artists from around the world, with a promise of much more work to come in the future. Stay tuned.
