The imposing opening of instrumental Black Paint illustrates the trio’s bleak sense of dystopia. The politically pointed Paralysed follows; frontman Thomy Sloane doesn’t say much but gets his point across, painting a dire picture of our bigoted national government landscape. His lyrical output throughout mirrors the brutal bass line he provides on Golden Handshake. What follows is blunt social commentary anchored by an instrumental performance that grows a voice of its own. The confrontational Weatherboard Man and Bells for the Victorian stand out as highlights.
