Almost two years ago, I caught an emerging Sydney band at a little party for a Swedish fashion house held where else but at the newly opened Oxford Art Factory. This band is called Songs and they fittingly returned to OAF for the launch of their self-titled release last Thursday night.
Songs have no doubt been one of the busiest bands around with a touring schedule that constantly saw them fill in as support slots. Seeing them headlining was a relief to the many who have caught this band time and time again. I can tell you that they owned it that night. In fact, I can tell you they own each and every set they have played. Yet, something just felt right with the quartet. They were tight and sounded incredibly strong. I guess on the back of their release they sounded polished – resolved and clear. Having evolved before our very eyes, Songs have managed to be the quintessential Sydney band.
