AN AUSTRALIAN ALBUM.
About 4 years ago I set out to make a record which might stand for something when I'm gone, which might stand for something when we're all gone, because from where I'm standing, that might be pretty soon.
We're not supposed to think about the fact that tomorrow we're going be somebody else's history book. So I guess all of these loose threads in the album - the love songs, the songs that play on religion, the songs that play on politics - they're all set in the knowledge that this is just a flash in the pan. In some songs, that's a vision of terror. In others, it's where all the most important and beautiful things in life have their basis. It's a debut album... but the irony is it all comes across as a swansong.
