4 OUT OF 5 ALBUM REVIEW BY JEFF APTER TODAY IN THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD.

Great news- our debut album WORD GOT OUT just got a 4 out of 5 in the Sydney Morning Herald by renowned music writer Jeff Apter. We get compared to Nick Cave and Kylie Minogue and Lee and Nancy, “Come on like folk-noir variations on Nick Cave and Kylie Minogue’s classic Where the Wild Roses Grow”.

Jep and Dep
WORD GOT OUT 4 stars

Way back in the late 1960s, long before the rule of Kim and Kanye, there was another dynamic duo named Lee (as in Hazlewood) and Nancy (Sinatra), who sang the soulful country blues. Lee and Nancy are clearly a touchstone for Jep and Dep, the latest from Gerling’s Darren Cross, now in cahoots with doe-eyed Sydney chanteuse Jessica Cassar. Recorded live in a touch under two hours, but no less well crafted because of it, these are the type of deep, dark laments best suited to the wee small hours, ideally taken with a not-so-wee-sized glass of something strong. The defiantly downbeat mood of standouts Cut All Ties, Tears in the Rain and Granted come on like folk-noir variations on Nick Cave and Kylie Minogue’s classic Where the Wild Roses Grow, ballads with the right balance of creeping menace and painful regret. JEFF APTER
