Having achieved 3 x ARIA Awards in the Best Blues & Roots category, along with an ARIA Top 20 album debut for 2008’s When The Flood Comes, a nod in that year’s Rolling Stone Top 50 Albums of the Year. Along with multiple international tours The Audreys are without doubt one of Australia’s most accomplished folk-rock outfits.The bulk of the album was recorded over a few days at Adelaide’s Mixmasters studio on an old SSL desk that classic bands like INXS and Midnight Oil recorded with back in the day.The result is a stunning collection of songs. With front-woman Taasha Coates on vocals and keys, Tristan Goodall on guitars and their regular band filling out the line-up, this is earthier and grittier than the band’s previous releases, covering themes of heartbreak and hope without wandering too far from the gutter.

About this track…

“This track started as a sleazy guitar riff”, says Tristan. “It has a goofy prog-rock inspired key change that I’m happy to say is an Audreys first, and a general hard-rockin’, hard-drinkin’ vibe”.
