    Following two excellent EPs from 2017, the debut album from this Australian band continues to move them to the front of the pack. The songs are fresh and lively, combining buoyant rhythms and jangle-pop melodies with atonal guitar chords, rollicking lead licks and a dark, quirky energy flow. On the first track alone, you get a Motown bass run, angular psych/noise guitar riffs and urgently deadpan indie vocals. And that’s just the start of one captivatingly creative song after another. Sometimes recalls bands like Blank Realm, The Strokes, Dick Diver, Scott & Charlene’s Wedding, The Feelies, Television Personalities, Salad Boys, Parquet Courts. With its consistently strong songwriting, pervasive sense of edgy free-flowing fun and fluid tremolo pop twang “Hope Downs” has tapped into something special. Each song feels like it could keep going forever—and you wish it would. Highly Recommended.
