WELL HERE IT IS.
OUR DEBUT ALBUM.
WORD GOT OUT.
This album is very special to us and we cant wait for you to hear it. It’s the product of late nights, cheap flights, small fights, much love, highway food, Berlin romance, troubadour tears and a lot of hard work!
GRAB A PHYSICAL COPY ON BANDCAMP AND AT OUR SHOWS“This is a beautifully presented dark, soaring and occasionally haunting alt-country number from Sydney’s Jep And Dep. Perhaps the best thing about it is they’ve managed to include the tropes of their chosen genre that make it so alluring without compromising their identity. That is to say, they’re not pretending to be a murderous couple from the American south circa-1949. This unaffected approach is rarer than it should be in the so-called folk-noir genre – it’s easier to make imitation sound good – so ‘Granted’ is a very welcome new track” – Double J on “Granted” “Sydney duo Jep and Dep show some lovely flair for atmospheric country sounds on their debut album “Word Got Out”, their songs ringing with a sweet intimacy and more than a touch of the dark side of life…”– 2ser Radio “The Sydney duo write music for now in a style that is both contemporary and nostalgic…” – Denver Maxx, Beat Magazine “The country duet is often maligned. Done with the right intent – as here, with minimal distraction from the central conversations – the emotions are front and centre, the simplicity sharpening the focus. Despite the relative youth of the names on the marquee, we’re talking early Johnny Cash and June Carter here, rather than Kenny and Dolly. Darren Cross’ almost-croon and strummed guitar makes for good contrast with Jessica Cassar’s sometimes bell-like lamentations. Babe Come Down’s distant cymbal splash, or My Man’s banjo, just underscore the love – or love gone wrong …” – Ross McClelland, The Music.
