Pale Morning [Import]
Deserters portray a classic Australian quality earmarked by luke thomas' (also of the pictures and the ronson hangup) intuitive writing techniques. The songs are rich with melody and a turn of phrase that reaches deep into the well of classic writers such as neil finn, steve kilbey and grant McLennan. The songs swell with a certain pride and endearing candour that comes from the bands effortless cool confidence. Devoid of studio trickery pale morning is a straight-up, organically produced album set to enamour devotees of classic pop and rock.
