Ten years after: Brisbane band reflects on the Cronulla riots

On 11 December 2005 one of the most notorious events in recent Australian history took place in and around the beaches and suburbs of Sydney, NSW.

The Cronulla riots made international news and forever changed the tenor of discussions around race and immigration in this country.

It’s hard to believe it’s been almost 10 years since the day but to mark the occasion Brisbane band Mexico City has issued a new single – their first release in six years.

The track, “Down At The Beach”, is from the group’s forthcoming third album; due for release in early 2016.

A mutant hybrid of surf guitar, railroad blues and Springsteen-esque howl, “Down At The Beach” takes an unflinching look at some of the key events from that fateful day.
