It might be easy for some to dismiss Brisbane’s Custard as pop jesters, but they sure know how to come up with a nifty pop tune.
The Common Touch – their seventh studio album – sees Custard arrive at the rock ’n’ roll ‘death age’ of 27. But there’s a lot of life left in them. Though many of their songs are now more wistful than wacky, there’s still an undeniable energy, and it’s impossible to dislike them.
Like their big brothers Mental As Anything, their work has always contained that wonderfully Aussie self-deprecating charm – check out this album’s first single, In The Grand Scheme Of Things (None Of This Really Matters).
The Common Touch is out October 6 via ABC/Universal.
