‘The Continental Drift’, the band’s fifth release offers gritty observations on life & love driven by a bunch of musicians schooled in everything from punk to country, but all with a taste for tale well told & a melody that hooks you in.
“… finds the group loosening their shoulders and opening up into a more eclectic Americana sound. The country-rock roots still remain but now they are enhanced with soulful touches, rousing rock’n’roll, languid atmospheric wanderings and an inherent Australian sun-kissed warmth on yet another strong release from Lucas and band.”
Chris Familton – The Music
“The recipe seems pretty simple: creeping easy on the ear melodies, songs written with ingredients from the store where Tom Petty and Elliott Murphy shop, a voice which is very akin to that of Gerry Rafferty, guitar sounds emerging from the strings of Bonnie Raitt … well, enough parts to make the great record that this CD has become.”
