EDITORS’ NOTES

These Sydneysiders strike a chord—and a five-part harmony to stop you in your tracks—on their 2011 debut album. There’s a dash of Mumford & Sons on brisk stompers like “Golden Jubilee” and a hint of Fleet Foxes in melancholy moments such as the autumnal “Big Man.” Frontman Dave Hosking has a real knack for capturing nostalgia in his lyrics (on “Part Time Believer” he recalls learning to play Rolling Stones songs as a kid) and a heartbreaking voice that’s husky at the edges.
