1. The Hinterland
2. Nora Creina
Bristly and warm, boldly fragile, and full to the gunwales with evocative imagery, ‘The Hinterland’ is the second single from the debut album ‘Other Towns Than Ours’ from Australian supergroup Last Leaves.
Formed from the scattered remains of The Lucksmiths, Last Leaves combine songwriter Marty Donald’s lyrical sleight-of-hand with the jangle and racket of his former band mates Louis Richter and Mark Monnone, and drummer Noah Symons of Great Earthquake fame.
Sounding like a lost classic from the Summershine imprint, ‘The Hinterland’ recounts a country convalescence: “From an upstairs window at your parents’ place/You saw the sun set where the highway cuts across the hinterland/Tail-lights fading in the twilight/It was more than you could stand”.
Guitars interweave throughout the verse—Richter’s joyous leads recalling variously Big Country and Stone Roses atop Donald’s staggered rhythm—before bursting anthemically into the harmony-laden chorus.
Exclusive b-side 'Nora Creina' borrows its title from a pin-prick hamlet on South Australia's Limestone Coast and its chorus from a short story by the Canadian writer Alice Munro, its shamble-footed groove giving way memorably to a majestic shoe-gaze outro.
Produced by Gareth Parton (The Go! Team, Foals, The Breeders), ‘Other Towns Than Ours’ is released October 20 in collaboration with The Lost And Lonesome Recording Company in Australia.
