Amyl and the Sniffers made their US television debut on Late Night with Seth Meyers last night (April 20th), where they performed “Hertz.”
The rowdy performance saw frontwoman Amy Taylor delivering a rowdy rendition of the anthemic tune. Amyl and the Sniffers honed in on their infectious live energy, as Taylor delivered lines like, “Take me to the beach, take me to the country/ Climb in the backseat if you love me.”
Last night’s performance followed the band’s recent gig at Coachella, which they’ll take part in again next weekend. Throughout “Hertz,” it’s clear that Amyl and the Sniffers really rip on stage.
Watch Amyl and the Sniffers’ performance of “Hertz” below.
The track comes from their recently released sophomore album, Comfort To Me. The new record sees the Melbourne punk rockers truly honing their sound. Due to the pandemic, Amyl & The Sniffers weren’t able to go out on the road, so it gave them time to truly cement their signature sound. While still channeling the fury of their self-titled debut, on Comfort To Me, they refine that sound.
From the propulsive “Hertz” to the raucous “Security,” you’ll find yourself thrashing around for the entire 13 tracks. On “Choices,” frontwoman Amy Taylor yells at men that refuse to respect women’s boundaries. “My choice, my own! My voice, my own! My body, my own!” Taylor wails anthemically.
“The nihilistic, live in the moment, positivity and panel beater rock-meets-shed show punk was still there, but it was better,” Taylor explains. “The whole thing was less spontaneous and more darkly considered.”
