Punchy electric guitars paired with nuanced, deeply emotional yet laconic vocal lines, recorded in true DIY style in Ross’ home studio in Newtown. The 5-piece live band features electric guitars, bass, drums keyboards and percussion. The live show is raw and honest, taking the emotion and hours put into the DIY home-studio recordings and setting the songs free, watching them breathe their first breaths to take on a life of their own, wafting over and enticing the audience with their subtle indie-pop barbs. Just below the sparkle and sonic waltz of the instruments sit the lyrics, for anyone who cares to go deeper and become immersed in Ross’ head for a three-and-a-half minute sojourn. It can be a bleak place, full of loss and uncertainty, but on occasion there is just enough light and hope to emerge out the other side, mostly unscathed, but always uplifted.
