Top Fives: Chicks Who Love Guns

CHICKS WHO LOVE GUNS are a rocking indie-punk 5-piece from Sydney who’ve garnered a reputation for their fiercely energetic live shows and the raw originality of their music.

They’ve played at two of PURPLE SNEAKERS‘ clubs, LAST NIGHT and CAN’T SAY as well as performing with a host of local and international acts including at Big Day Out 2012. These guys are making a name for themselves, and, being big fans, we decided to get to know them better.
