Is Aretha Franklin hunting us down, taking hostage on Ambrose from The Murlocs? Because there is a little bit of her in the vocals, slightly modified so it goes along with rock. Melbourne based winners of the Harvest competition and previous players at Werribee Park, their debut album Loopholes has been released under Remote Control. Harmonica, guitar, drums, vocals, bass and lots of class.
Lead singer and self-taught harp player Ambrose Smith is also part of King Gizzard and the Lizzard Wizard, thus juggling between two successful bandits. Blues is reinvented and for some it is sort of psychedelic, though it never goes scary nor odd. One could notice a everlasting feel of garage rock, but then a Southern soulfulness rises and moulds it down to something never heard before.
