Finally, we’re back to Australian songs.
I’ll try to make up for the recent non-Australian-ness ’round these parts by making this post a double-header (i.e., two songs for the price of one).
Deserters are a band who are one of those hybrid beasts whereby they’re called either power pop or Americana, depending on who you talk to. (If you talk to me, I’d be saying “They’re Americana”.)
They’re about to release their second album, Quay Of Sea*, and the first “single” from it will be a “double-A side”. (Sorry about the inverted commas, but I’m using terms that are outdated. As young people might say nowadays: “Single? Double-A side? Huh?”)
And here are the two songs that make up the, er, two songs:
[Beware: The video is exceedingly boring. Except for 2:16, where something different happens. But even that’s not interesting. You do get to see the band from 4:12 until the end, but they’re scruffy and don’t look as though they made any kind of effort to smarten themselves up for the video.]
(*It took me ages to get the pun of that title.)
