Everybody Split by Possible Humans

It’s been an achingly long six-year wait for Melbourne’s Possible Humans to deliver their debut album Everybody Split. Indeed, when it was announced on April Fool’s Day 2019, many assumed it was a joke. But the quintet delivered a brilliant record, encompassing all the best reference points in DIY/underground history.

8/10 Jamie 25 July 2019

So, they’ve done it… Finally. The quintet known as Possible Humans, possibly Melbourne’s best-kept secret for a number of years, formed in 2013. Hundreds of coruscating, scintillating live shows in Aus and a sum total of one "live improv" cassette plus a two-song 7” single on Sydney-based Strange Pursuits label -- over six years later (phew!) the guys have now achieved 'Official Debut Album Release' status! 

And behold! This is wonderful, energising stuff: nine tracks of raucous, energetic indie-rock full of catchy hooks and that jangle-and-clang sound reminiscent of early R.E.M. and fellow Aussies, Midnight Oil. Consistently engaging and wildly driven, there are some magnificent songs on this record; ‘Everybody Split’ is as fizzy and effervescent as a whole packet of mentos plunged into a vat of local store, non-branded cola.

My personal favourite though is the one they called ‘Orbiting Luigi’: opening with a simple kick-and-snare combo with pure, clear and LOUD jangle-riffage propelling it along, I have no idea what the subject matter is… Other than my own interpretation, that is: Navigating a route around a slightly overheated, sleepy and grumpy cat who happens to be blocking the hallway and entrance to my kitchen. He’s a senior yet youthful black-and-white called Luigi, you see. Renowned on our street for his vitality, beauty spot under the whiskers and luscious, swishing tail -- this record is every bit as characterful, charming and deadly as he and, since you've not met him you can take it from me.
