What do you think of Step Brothers?
As far as Sydney music and being exposed to it, fuck it’s all to Palms...
My first memories of Palms are at a festival, powering through caps at their 12 o'clock set, the workings of that day still vivid through my mind. From that point we would go to all there shows.
Standard Bowl, month long residency at the Lansdowne mid-week whenever. It meant finding out there was so much more in Sydney then fucked club nights full of RnB and Deep house. Life would be very different if it weren’t for these nights and shows.
It pushed us into looking up venues and shows that were happening. Not knowing the bands but just going to venues on a limb, discovering new music. Live music quickly turned into being my favourite way to get drunk.
As far as this album goes, song writing, melodic hooks if it’s an observational look on experiences I don’t know, but the honesty standouts to me how ever direct/indirect/exaggerated it may or not be.
It’s a fun album it reminds of dancing with my friends, something that seems almost like a distant memory now.
