Sydney trio Yes I'm Leaving make tightly coiled, lo-fi punk, with flinty bass and overdriven guitars that occasionally go "shriiinng!" If you dig Big Black, AmRep and Toronto's METZ, you should give these Aussies a go. Their second album, Slow Release, is out September 29. We've got the premiere of the album's second single, "Fear." The video for it, directed by Matthew Griffin, takes the song's paranoid tension and turns it into a nightmare for singer Billy. You can watch that, and check out another song from the album, below.

No word on tour dates but if you need to see Australians in NYC, there's plenty of that this month. Video and song streams below...
