The Waifs – ‘Angela’ (mp3)
Although the core band members now live in the US, to me The Waifs are an Australian band. Those accents! Those songs! That record label they co-own with John Butler!
Twenty years of playing together combined with twenty years of life experience has helped birth Temptation, their first album in five years.
I think it’s their best yet. The arrangements are quite sparse compared with their earlier work, but it’s a good thing. Solid songs should be given room to breathe.
They’re touring in March.
