Perhaps an anthem for our times? If you like a bit of Nick Cave-infused messy grit-pop-rock, then this Sydney-based trio, The Wild Frontier, may be for you. The brainchild of brother and sister, Christopher and Philippa Mayes, with David Mackie, this archival style promo seems to hang together quite well in a sort of sixth class collage kinda way. As the band themselves pronounce on their YouTube channel: ‘Get your sackcloth on and writhe in the ashes’. Just what I was thinking.
