“Call me old-fashioned,” Fergus Linacre sings on Kingswood’s third album, which sees the Melbourne band return to their rocking best.

The guitars are cranked on the aptly titled Juveniles, which is a ball of youthful, nervous energy – just check out the glorious ’70s-inspired rock of Say You Remember, the heavy riffing of Snake Pit, the pounding drums of Cigarettes In Bed, and the cheeky joy of Young, Charming & Funny. The album also highlights the band’s two fine singers in Linacre and Alex Laska. Kingswood whip up some mighty grooves, making you want to “dance around the stereo” and “put it on repeat”. Fans of Foo Fighters and The Killers should immediately investigate.

Kingswood album After Hours, Close to Dawn.
