the Australian rock band’s debut is an introspective record made up of sweeping, jangling guitar melodies that should keep the cure and smiths fans happy, whilst their frontman cuts straight to the quick with his honest and raw vocal delivery.

each of their songs has the ineffable sound of a true Classic. recorded by the band, live off the floor, at Melbourne’s iconic rock’n’roll pub, The Tote, these tracks gesture towards their heroes — the Go-Betweens, Echo and the Bunnymen, The Psychedelic Furs, the Smiths — whilst never sounding like homage or pastiche. blurring light and dark, employing guitars both angular and jangling, these Songs are passionately sung. lyrically, these songs are at once personal and universal, intimate and grand, timely and timeless. “’a quality of mercy’ has the distinct whiff of future classic about it” 8/10 – uncut.
