Dennis Val’s guitar snaps in and out, rather thrilling structures. I could say the songs are guitar-driven, which I spose they are, but the composition is such that it doesn’t seem like that. The bass and drums are an old-fashioned rhythm section, which means they’ve got nothing to prove and they know how back up the meat of the matter. For once we have a keyboardist who knows just how to soar at the right time and when to haul back to smoulder behind the song.

 There’s a lot you’ll recognise in passing, but all these songs are originals. Perfect - this is the stuff most Australians know and claim as their own. I’d love to see them, they’re definitely a commercial type of band, c’mon Sony, get on with it.

Where do you go to get Love Child? Their website of course.
