Aah...in confirmation that my brain does, in fact, work, the brooding menace of ‘And Now For The Wild’ reminds me that I have heard this lot before, this aforementioned single is typical of their sound which is one part Nick Cave, one part Triffids and another The Walkmen. They create a swirling brew of dark, earnest, plangent rock with leaves you wondering why on earth they aren’t Australian. They have that widescreen sense of atmosphere that is de rigeur amongst Australian bands when they want to sound a bit American.

Although their songs recall long drives across the desert, cacti silhouetted against the sun, they appear to have emerged partly out of Yorkshire where the only cacti found is in mother's futile attempt to glam up the mantelpiece. Their songs churn, full of atmosphere, vocals are delivered in a low, smoky drawl, lyrics are earnest and about important stuff and shit, you can imagine the singer sipping from a glass of whisky between songs.

It’s quite possible that for convenience you may want to compare them to The National, they have the same low voiced, broody atmospheres and sense of epic songwriting craft but really they are dead ringers for The Triffids, especially on ‘A Thousand Generators’ which marries nice Wild Beasts style guitar interplay with a poetic transatlantic whiskey stained drawl.
