WOOLLEN KITS

Australia is in a full-on rock & roll renaissance right now, and charging to the front of the pack are Melbourne’s Woollen Kits.

‘Four Girls’ is the follow up to their self-titled debut LP on RIP Society and a continuation of the greatness of their Trouble In Mind debut 7” from summer 2012.

The new album finds the band in tip top form - confident and assured, with a suite of their best tunes to date. Songs herein deal with underlying longing or fantasy with individual truths and being fed up with people’s phoney concepts and ideals (which, guitarist Tom Hardisty says: “… in an effort to make themselves feel more deep and interesting to people, are actually creating a barrier between themselves and everyone else by only relating to others on a very one dimensional level”).

However, despite this frustration or sense of loss, there’s usually a positive spin on these themes. ‘Cheryl’ is a definite standout on the album, and offers listeners some of the truest lyrics ever put to song with “When you look good, you know you feel good, and when you feel good, you get sh*t done.”

‘Susannah’ is another instant head-bopper with its happy-tappy VU guitar strum and horn interplay. Tom, Tom and Leon have taken the two disparate voices of their debut album and forged a united delivery emphasizing the best of both songwriters’ strengths. It’s got the swagger and jangle of classic Flying Nun and the simplicity and directness of Beat Happening with a dash of late-80s underground rock.

For fans of Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Velvet Underground, Tronics, Beat Happening.
