What is it with Western Australia? Almost everytime a band from there crosses my path, they’re superb. Mining Boom’s “PDA” is one of my most-listened to songs of the ladt three years, Braves are making some of the most danceable lo-fi in the world, and now this little scrapper, from the excellently-named Villain.
A lot of what comes out of Perth and the vast desert around it is appropriately dusty and roughneck, this is something else – 60s-hued guitar pop, buttoned-up and just as sharp as a switchblade. Best of all, it’s been shot entirely in a combivan, because of course it was.
