COME UP INVISIBLE is their second long-player, and it’s clearly one of the finest Australian albums of recent times. Displaying mammoth musicality with hard-earned songwriting smarts and abetted by a whip-smart production, it's a ‘90s-tinged set that shines with audacious ambition and genuine conviction. Tim Steward and Skye Stanifords’ vocals roam between fierce defiance and naked vulnerability; guitars sigh and wail, conjuring waves of power and fragile, glittering intimacy. Keys, percussion and even bazouki materialise like angelic visions over the understated yet menacing rhythm section. It’s a riveting high-wire act made all the more fascinating for the complete lack of a safety net.
New single NO SIGNS is a fine example of this – fearsomely well-crafted, as clean-lined and immaculate as a well-cut suit, yet utterly immediate and somehow unexpected. It’s a colossal pop song that is clever enough to appear dumb, riding in on a wave of “yeah yeah yeah yeahs” and yet containing the kind of truths that have to be sculpted from the hardest of experiences.
The EP includes 4 bonus tracks, 2 acoustics versions of tracks from COME UP INVISIBLE and the single and album version of the latest track NO SIGNS
