Bio

Mistakes That Nature Made is the debut album from Sydney genre deconstructionists, the Khanz. Two years in the making, the album follows on several years of the band honing its craft at live shows supporting the likes of San Cisco, Bluejuice, Hungry Kids of Hungary, Sticky Fingers, Dappled Cities and Faker, and in a string of singles that have won radio play in Australia and Europe.
Previous singles have also charted on Amrap’s Great Southern Chart and the song Falling Apart was a finalist in the International Songwriting Contest in Nashville. The video for Falling Apart was a finalist in the video category at the Miami Film Festival.
The album was recorded in the Vienna People Studios in Sydney’s Annandale, where producer Michael McGlynn has been unearthing some sparkling new gems of Australian music, including L-Fresh The Lion and Little May.
The Khanz will be announcing an East Coast tour in support of the album when it is launched.
Mistakes That Nature Made is out on 7 March through Vienna People Records and MGM.

HAHA you can really hear Gabe the Dog in the beginning can't you? Good pick up Nat. This would be so GREAT live! This song is what it would sound like if Passion Pit and Grouplove combined their musical talents. It's fun, bouncy and it makes me want to throw my hands in the air and jump around.

If you got Gabe the Dog on the opening you should have credited him. He was a talented pupper, and that's just courtesy. That opening is huge though, and the chorus soars. Good stuff.

really like the instrumental sections and choruses, not as much the verses. RIP Harambe.
