Track Of The Day :: City Calm Down - Son
Words: Linn Branson
They say you can tell whether you are going to get along with someone within the first minutes of meeting. So it can equally be applied to listening to a new song: if it hasn't grabbed you within the first 60 seconds, it's probably not going to. Fortunately for City Calm Down, 'Son' is just one big addictive grab right from the very off.
The track is taken from the Melbourne four-piece's upcoming 11-track debut album 'In A Restless House', out via Australian label I OH YOU on November 6, and follows singles 'Rabbit Run' and 'Wandering' which brought them early attention.
Little Indie featured 'Rabbit Run' back in June and July, in which we made much of the quality of Jack Bourke’s voice. He's no less effective here on 'Son': his deep and affecting baritone fitting alongside an organ opening that broadens out into an expansive melody that builds on a vibrant driving rhythm and big hooky choruses.
