Scott And Charlene’s Wedding continue with third album ‘Mid Thirties Single Scene’ out 2nd September 2016. Bursting with classic SACW tunes they’ll be hitting the road across Europe for the first time since 2014 later this year.
Returning to Melbourne following a year of touring, with stints in New York and London and a trip globetrotting, three years have passed since a new SACW record dropped. Now into his thirties Craig Dermody continues to deal with the banalities of everyday life with his straight talking reflections on home life, keeping up the pace and missed opportunities – all encased with his usual contempt.
Dysfunctional and disenchanted, our care-free but knowing protagonist ain’t growing up and doesn’t give a damn what you think about it – “Don’t Bother Me” is an irresistible pumped up slacker pop anthem, which recalls The Lemonheads at their best. ‘Delivered’ plays out as if Pavement had been bowing at the altar of The Velvet Underground instead of The Fall, all tied together with a Bowery rasp as if Richard Hell had grabbed the microphone.
Discordant guitars and 90s grunge influences on ‘End Of The Story’ evokes the spirit of Nirvana whilst ‘Distracted’ and ‘Hardest Years’ unveils the lower points of travelling and depression with a nod towards 2013’s output ‘Any Port In A Storm’.
Scott & Charlene’s Wedding’s Craig Dermody is the voice of a generation, it just so happens to be a generation mired in dead end jobs while smiling into the sunshine as they wonder when someone is going to show up and call the cops on the party again.
