about

Triumph & Disaster is a post-apocalyptic view on the collapse of the world told like a children’s story and illustrated through the eyes of a mother and her son as they spend one last day on Earth. The music is the narrative for the destruction and tragedy. The words tell the story of love, loss and letting go.

It is a sad love letter about the collapse of the planet as told through a lens of intricate guitars and striking colour. The album deliberates themes and events such as the climate crisis, over consumption, isolation and the loss of love and trust. It is a lament for the planet, all the people on it and the beauty that will be left behind.

Triumph & Disaster is out October 4 via Bird's Robe Records (Australia) and October 25 via Translation Loss (US), Holy Roar (UK) and Dunk!Records (EU).

Wout from Dunk!, Drew from Translation Loss and Alex from Holy Roar for their support and enthusiasm for our music. Greg Norman (not the golf guy) for his work on this record and living with us for a week in the bush. Jack and Owen and the crew at The Grove. Thanks to our support network - Michael Taverner, Matt Sourdin, Aaron Worboys at Adversary Studios, Casey and Sheri at Select, Bec and Amy at Deathproof and Jef at New Noise. A huge thank you to all our fans, you keep us going and we couldn’t do it without your support.
