Hey Geronimo – ‘Carbon Affair’ (mp3)
Hey Geronimo are a five piece from Brisbane made up of the offcuts from bands like Blame Ringo, Montpelier and The Boat People.
I haven’t heard a sad song come out of Brisbane in the last two years. If that’s any indication, I probably should be moving north, since ‘Carbon Affair’ is the pretty much the epitome of the sunshine state’s collective optimism in one song. Sounds like James Mercer fronting Hungry Kids of Hungry or something. All these punchy pop songs find their resting place in insurance ads somewhere down the line but in the meantime, I’m all for musical groups of the ‘TAKE ME TO A HAPPY PLACE!’ sort.
