Sunshine Coast pub/punk rockers, The Chats, came in hot with probably the most relatable song of 2017, 'Smoko'. The cracker of a tune is an ode to the nationally-familiar worksite break known as "smoko" which involves a durry, maybe a tea and most likely a pie. (Fittingly... the song was conceived on the way to purchase a pie).

Within 20 hours of uploading the video it quickly became a viral sensational and currently sits at just over 5 million views on YouTube! Watch the video below.

The Chats consists of lead singer and bassist Eamon Sandwith, guitarist Josh Price and drummer Matt Boggis. You can listen to their EP Get This In Ya here.
