We don't know about you, but the weather where we are at the moment is horrific. Yeah, so it turns out that putting the washing out today was a major mistake. And now, as we sit in soaking wet threads, having spent the last 10 minutes picking sodden crumpled clothes up from around the garden (our washing line broke in the wind), all we want is to wrap up in comfy clothes and listen to something warming.
Hooray then, for the debut EP, Burn Bright, from Brisbane six piece, Mosman Alder, which is the perfect accompaniment to a cheeky whisky and a crackling fire. The richly layered tracks feature violin, piano and the unmistakable croon of Valdis Valodze. Head to Soundcloud to hear the EP in full.
And if that isn't enough Mosman Alder for you, they are just about to hit the East Coast for a run of intimate shows. Details below. In the meantime, settle back and have a listen. Oh, and if you don't have a fire, then there are ways of conjuring one up.
