“A soaring slice of stadium indie-rock” – Pilerats
“Loving the slightly gothic vibes, and that pulsing bass.” – Richard Kingsmill, Triple J “Indie-rock lords WHARVES have taken things up a notch” – Life Without Andy “Uneasy and unbearably hypnotic all at once” – Happy
WHARVES waltz right back into the spotlight with new single ‘Mo’s Desert Clubhouse’, a jaunty belter with ferocious guitars and spooky vocals. The second single off their debut EP ‘Sooner or Later’, which is due out Friday 5th October, WHARVES’ latest offering found its charm with creative input from producer and mixer Steven Schram (San Cisco, Tiny Little Houses).
The track follows the release of ‘High School Hero’, the EP’s first single and all-round mover and shaker. The band’s lead singer, Matt Collins, describes the organic process of the song and how “The music for this track came from our Sapphire Sessions in March 2018. We stayed in a beautiful house near the beach in Coffs Harbour and jammed for 3 days straight. We pretty much wrote the music there and then”.
Collins also explains that “The lyrics were inspired by a roadtrip I took in May with the part owner of the Gold Coast arts venue "Mo's Desert Clubhouse". She was explaining her frustrations with the local Council pretty much bullying them into closing. I can't stand how narrow-minded people in power can be, the arts are one of the most important things in life, without art, life isn't worth living. It is not a crime to dance"
