The Boat People – darlings of Brisbane pop. Brisbane pop has become quite an uncommon term since the legendary days of Custard, Regurgitator and Screamfeeder way back in the 1990’s. It’s delightful to hear this tradition from above the border coming back to the forefront.
Whispy riffs and dreamy lyrics make for a light-hearted album that you can’t help but bop along with. This warm and fuzzy album is a long time in the making, with their first of three EPs being released in 2002, and their debut released in 2005, it seems that basking in all that northern sunshine over the past three years has created a release to warm the cockles of anyone’s heart.
If you love the jingle jangle of some well-arranged honest tunes, then you cannot go past this collection of fine tracks from The Boat People. Turn it on, turn it up, and get ready to smile your face off.
