New: Tempura Nights – Mr Tone

Opening with a noisy pop squeal that would make The Pixies begin to furiously begin to re-think their entire musical stylings, “Mr Tone” is three and a half minutes of Australia’s answer to the re-emergance of college pop excellence happening in the USA.

With Speedy Ortiz, Radical Dads and PILE all making our Yankee cousins nostalgic for the days of Guided By Voices, The Replacements and Mission of Burma, Tempura Nights adopt an approach that made the Deal sisters such irresistible musical icons. What’s more, they’re Brissy babes through and through, sweltering through the same apocalyptic heat which bore The Saints and The Go-Betweens. It’s early days yet, but when the pop sensibilities are melding with the noise so effortlessly, it makes the case to get behind Tempura Nights too easy.
