Australian duo The Wolfe Brothers today announce the release of their latest barnstormer, “Startin’ Something,” with American country duo, LOCASH. Hailed by the brothers as “a party starter from Tasmania to Tennessee,” the track delivers with a sonic vibe reminiscent of the international clinking of a Cascade Blue tinnie to a Budweiser can and brings together two much-loved duos with a generous helping of bravado and cheer. The duet is internationally available now—listen HERE.
Produced by Lindsay Rimes (Luke Bryan, Kane Brown, Kylie Minogue) the good time tune captures a similarly joyful fusion of country, rock and pop as The Wolfe Brothers’ previous hit collaboration with Rimes, “No Brakes.” “Startin’ Something,” originally written in 2016 with Jordan Brooker (Luke Combs), will be featured on the Australian duo’s new album, Kids on Cassette, which was announced today to be released worldwide on July 30th 2021.

“We wanted to make a record we could play live anywhere – from the back of a truck to a stadium and ‘Startin’ Something’ seemed to be one of those songs that kept giving us that feeling,” said bassist Tom Wolfe. “We first shared a stage with LOCASH back in 2016 when their single ‘I Love This Life’ was dominating the charts— fast forward five years—we were digging through our catalogue and rediscovered this track and it transported us back to that time – we knew we had to reach out to the guys!”
In the five years since originally crossing paths both duos have signed with BBR Music Group/BMG and had a slew of successes including multiple No. 1 radio hits—to make for a pairing that promises great things and delivers in spades.
Emerging from their award-winning album, Country Heart, Kids on Cassette is The Wolfe Brothers’ fifth studio album and first following the band’s signing at BBR Music Group/BMG. “Startin’ Something” is the third single released from the new record and will be sent to Australian radio May 30th. The track comes hot on the heels of their 14th consecutive Aus Country Airplay No. 1, “Anybody Ever,” which is still in the Top 20 (29 weeks and counting) as well as its predecessor, “No Brakes” that spending 22 weeks in the Top 20. With songs of this calibre Kids on Cassette promises to be a crowd pleaser.
“We’ve pushed ourselves into new areas, feels and sounds for this record – It’s got heart, soul and a lot of fun in this one—I can’t wait for people to hear it,” says vocalist/ lead guitarist Nick Wolfe. “We’re really proud of the end result and just can’t wait to play the songs live!”
