From the outset of the ambient soundscape setting the tone for the rest of the song, the vulnerability in singer Dan Carroll’s delivery is believable. He invites the listener to come look for him in the band’s first offering from forthcoming album Good Grief titled Look For Me.
Carroll’s smokey vocals and acoustic guitar are perfectly complemented by bassist/multi instrumentalist Brad Hosking’s melodic basslines and subliminal organ playing. Drummer Jules Keshan does more than hold down the beat with an understanding of playing the right part at the right time that only comes with experience.
The laid back vibe of the track recalls some of Radiohead’s gentler moments and could be considered more the soundtrack to a broken heart than a pick me up/let’s go dancing kind of affair.
Look For Me and the full length player it is taken from were recorded at Mr Hosking’s Blind Boy Studios in Nerang and is a self produced effort by the band with Brad overseeing the engineering and mixing and local mainstay Paul Blakey handling the mastering. It’s a world-class product produced right here in our back yard.
Look For Me is available to buy as a digital download on bandcamp.com and on the iTunes store while the album Good Grief will also be available on CD, digital download and as part of a limited edition vinyl release in May 2016.
