Perth outfit The Floors are all set to release their new album Beat It Down at the end of the week, and we at The Music are stoked to be able to give you a li'l preview listen in the lead-up with our premiere stream today.

The new full-length — the band's second — was heralded by recent single Pills, and the wider album carries the same snarling DIY-bred edge that distinguished that effort. Beat It Down was recorded over four days, direct to 8-track, in the studio of Dan Carroll (The Kill Devil Hills, Timothy Nelson), imbuing the album's 10 songs with an energy and authenticity that's as infectious as it is omnipresent.

The acclaimed trio of musos — guitarist Luke Dux, bassist Ryan Dux and drummer Ash Doodkorte — have made good on more than five years of gigging and growing together as artists to deliver a polished — but not too polished — collection of inward-looking, outwardly rockin' tunes jammed full of fiery riffs, powerful bass and relentless drum lines. It's straight-up delicious from top to tail.

If you're into it and around the traps, The Floors will be launching Beat It Down on Friday 17 March at Badlands, with a little help from their friends in Thee Loose HoundsBats (the Perth one, not the pretty widely known Irish one) and Oosterbanger.
