'Clarity' is the first taste of the Sydney drums-guitar duo's second album, currently under construction at The Grove Studios near Gosford. From glam-slamming guitar riffs to one of the most insane drum fills of all time, it's a soul-funk party starter with a dark undertow that won't, ever, leave you alone.
"It's still basically just me on drums and Novak on guitar and vocals," drummer John-Henry says, "but we've found ourselves writing music with more layers, more parts. We're spending a lot more time thinking about songs and about recording. It's definitely a different process to the last album."
Lyrically, Clarity is a plea from the churning vortex of modern existence that heralds a slightly more serious phase in the songwriters' headspace.
"It's a mental scene rather than a specific one," says fuel-injected singer/ guitarist Novak. "It's about the struggle of communication; not being able or eloquent or ballsy enough to say what you're thinking; being at the end of your tether with confusion, wanting to be clear with yourself and others."
