It could be the pandemic talking, but, this tune makes me want to go to a bar and get my dance on.

The sort of song that'll make you realize was your first love was your true love and you'll never see them again.

Always riled me up when I heard nice guys finish last. I think it's time we update the adage to this suggestion from The Slingers and Spike Fuck. Rings home and rings true.

"The men stand around like headless agapanthus." I find something new in this song every time I come back. I can't decide if it makes me smile or cry and that is a very special thing.

No prizes for anyone mentioning Paul Kelly in their reviews! Yeah that influence is apparent but it's a complimentary comparison to be put in that class. You've used a 1000x zoom to flesh out the details of this yarn.

You've imbued your words with so much colour so that these scenes and people are so beautiful, sad and vivid.

you've got a lot of lyrics here and they're all good. "one more day, one more hour / as the sun dips behind the Telstra tower" is a beautiful string of words.

I always think about how hard it would be to write stories in lyrics like this without sounding awkward or forced. But as soon as I heard the first lines "flies buzz around the homemade irrigation - the labels on the bottles sag in condensation" I knew I was in good hands - and that I could sit back and relax into your scenery. I think you've really nailed it here.

This is everything I've always wanted! For a big Paul Kelly fan like myself, I don't we've truly heard anything that resembles his style on Unearthed from what I remember. My favourite songs are those where I can hear the storytelling. Those simple key melody and the country-twang guitars just top it all off. Will definitely be listening to the new ones!

I heard this on the radio the other day and had to pull my car over. There is a genuinely masterful use of language on display here that rips you out of whatever you are doing and throws you into the scenery of the song. Stunning.

A little beauty - has heart and soul if you know what I mean. Never-the-less this earns opening track on Unearthed VII. Well done guys.

Uh huh huh! When you know exactly how much Tambi and handclaps are needed for the chorus. This is so contagious - from the story in the lyrics to the vocal delivery to the way the band builds up in the pre chorus and then just resets. Yeah yeah!
