Perhaps it’s just us but Eddy Current Suppression Ring’s Brendan Huntley sounds a lot like Paul Kelly on ‘Whispering and Singing’, the new single from Melbourne indie “supergroup” Boomgates.
The countrified track, which features shared vocals from Dick Diver’s Steph Hughes and some vivid lyrics about sold houses and freight trains, is the first taste of debut album Double Natural (out through Bedroom Suck Records/Fuse Music on August 24).
Starting as a “loose Thursday evening sing and strum on the couch”, the five-piece have cemented themselves as a band proper, releasing a double A-side single last year and playing halftime at the Reclink Community Cup on Sunday (a slot occupied by Tumbleweed last year). Photos here.
