Brisbane Indie/Country-Rocker's Mermaid Avenue Release New Single From Their Album 'Sugar Town'
Brisbane indie/country-rock band Mermaid Avenue have just released the second single from their second album 'Sugartown'.
'Philosophy' is an up-tempo rock number that expresses the frustration felt when a family is split by geographic divides. Recorded at the The Barn Studios, the song has been engineered and mixed by Steve Robin (Blues Arcadia, The Walters and more). Guest artist Pepper Jane contributes her vocal talents also to the song.
Mermaid Avenue continue to mix their indie rock and alt.country with a healthy dose of 90’s classicism and Oz rock swagger.
Since first cutting their teeth live in 2015, Mermaid Avenue have become a regular feature on the Brisbane scene driven by the prolific songwriting of singer Peter Clarke and musicianship of Mike Kearey (guitars), Chris Wong (guitars), Mark Egan (bass), Casey Lee (keys) and Anthony Judd (drums).
The sessions for 'Sugartown' began in late 2020 and continued over the course of 2021 at The Barn Recording Studio in the Lockyer Valley. The album was engineered by Steve Robin and mixing duties shared with iconic Australian producer Lachlan 'magoo' Goold.
