The genre is hard to define as it has Alt Country and what I call Australiana (the equivalent to Americana) and the song topics are typical of this genre. There are some great lyrics interspersed with just the right amount of beautifully played musical breaks.
Where do these guys get their inspiration from to form such good songs?
Horoscope Girl is the typical search for answers and understanding which is really already a repeat of what is known by the singer; this makes it harder in life to find these things. The lead guitar interludes are very neatly played and placed-not often found these days.
Be Mine is a male’s promise to his partner about ongoing fidelity, love and nurturing one another; although this is a ‘love’ song with Glenn well and truly wearing his heart on his sleeve with one tattooed on his forehead as well (!). the song is not the usual soporific sounds that emanate from certain artists.
The musical backing on the next track, Something You Are Not, is raw rock at its very best and gives an insight into how, if one is twice bitten, then one is definitely not going to be three times bitten or taken in again; a sad song, but not sombre just purely open and honest. If this does not make you move, then you must be wearing clogs that are solidly welded to the floor.
The final track has just that right amount of balance so that the EP does not finish on a ‘slushy’ number but one that is very adult and insightful and ties the EP down.
