'Siblings' is the vibrant new single by the Brisbane indie-folk fun merchants and it delves into the unique intensity of close blood relationships - you can choose your friends but never your family.
Alex Campbell's hook-laden and ultra-expressive vocals riding atop crisp, bouncy acoustic melodies and rousing gang vocal counterpoints.
Full Power Happy Hour first captured hometown hearts with their heartfelt, high-energy live shows and parlayed that momentum into their acclaimed 2021 self-titled debut album. That initial collection was released to great acclaim - deemed Album Of The Week in numerous publications - and debuting at #4 on the AIR independent Chart upon release.
With songs based around the beguiling worldview and bewitching vocals of singer-songwriter Alex Campbell, the band’s unique aesthetic mixes the intimacy and fragility of ‘60s folk singers like Joni Mitchell and Joan Baez with the ramshackle bonhomie of The Pogues, tempered by a more modern indie-rock sensibility akin to The Clean. The results are purely and defiantly Full Power Happy Hour.
Buoyed by the success of their debut and their first extensive tours away from home, the band return with their confident and assured second album, still rife with impassioned lyrics, joyful camaraderie and heart-stirring harmonies, but now with more focussed arrangements and a self- belief in both writing and delivery that elevates these songs to new emotional and visceral heights without sacrificing any of the band’s inherent, laidback charm.
Supporting Full Power Happy Hour is Meanjin alt-country songwriter, Nathan John Kearney. Nathan has released two solo albums and two solo EPs and plays regularly in Brisbane and along the East Coast. His songs evoke echoes of Townes Van Zandt, Emmylou Harris and Uncle Tupelo, with a modern Australian perspective.
