Sunshine Coast pub/punk rockers, The Chats, came in hot with probably the most relatable song of 2017, 'Smoko'. The cracker of a tune is an ode to the nationally-familiar worksite break known as "smoko" which involves a durry, maybe a tea and most likely a pie. (Fittingly... the song was conceived on the way to purchase a pie).
Within 20 hours of uploading the video it quickly became a viral sensational and currently sits at just over 5 million views on YouTube!
The Chats consists of lead singer and bassist Eamon Sandwith, guitarist Josh Price and drummer Matt Boggis.
