Jammed full of emotive anthems and sharp rock tendencies, NT-based quintet Draftday bring a touch of vitality and fresh finesse to everything they sonically touch. Calling to mind the likes of Trophy Eyes, Slowly Slowly and Gang of Youths, the Darwin locals have rapidly evolved into their own unique slice of the heavier music world since forming back in 2018, and today they take a bold step into further infamy with a brand new music video for their tune Misspent.
Having already performed extensively in their hometown, both with supports alongside Tapestry, The Smith Street Band and Belle Haven, as well as their own debut headliner show, 2020 is set to further showcase the previous twelve months spent writing, self-producing and recording their debut EP When I Went Away, due out next month. But with everyone stuck at home for the time being and in honour of the band's new music video, what better way to get to know Draftday more than by finding out their 5 Favourite Guilty Must-See Movies keeping them sane during quarantine lyfe. Check it out below!
SHE'S THE MAN
One of those classic 2000’s movies that we grew up with, when I first saw this I (Arran) was obsessed with football so it’s a definite guilty pleasure for something that I loved as a kid.
THE LOST BOYS
Is this one really a guilty pleasure? It’s got all you need from a sort of lame 80’s film.
Big hair, a banging Soundtrack, vampires and some classic looks (that we wish we could pull off).
KUNG FU HUSTLE
Kung Fu Hustle is a classic in our books, it’s hilarious watching the stereotypical fight scenes and parodying of a ‘gangster’ film. Definitely recommended for a guilty pleasure film to watch with mates.
FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL
Not going to lie here, I (Arran) still get pretty emotional watching this one. After binge watching ‘How I Met Your Mother’ I got pretty attached to Jason Segal as an actor. The film's just a perfect blend of a borderline cringe rom com, that still brings up a tear or 20.
This is one I’ll watch for a self love night in, bust out a facemask, chocolate, wine and just let it all out.
Okay so yes, it’s not a film. But damn it is a guilty pleasure and a half. So much drama and romance and it’s hard not to fall in love with McDreamy. This is a relatively new guilty pleasure (and one that is kept pretty under wraps) but hey,
We all need a little touch of a dramatic TV show to be ensconced in, right?
