Following up from an attention grabbing EP, City Calm Down have been hotly tipped for some time now as the next big Australian act.
It's easy to see why with their long awaited debut, which has been carefully brewing over the last three years. There's something timeless about In A Restless House.
The Melbourne four-piece set themselves apart with a diverse set of influences ranging from new order-esque new wave to modern electronic dance rock. There's a pulsing drive to the tracks here, which often shift into hazy melancholy – which make them perfect for that late night drive home.
It's the ebb and flow of ‘Wandering’, the tension built between the synths and guitars that shows the real craftsmanship that's gone into the album.
In A Restless House is a mammoth achievement for a debut album and is sure to become an instant classic.
