With material ranging from the berserk rockabilly song terra nova blues to the delicate ballad everyone moves on, the adventure spirit became known for having an unusually strong variety of tunes, united by the soaring sound of Tim and Leigh’s vocal blending and Mirra’s jazz inspired drumming.
The group enjoyed a little radio airplay following the release of hope shall carry on and earned a reputation for compelling songwriting and intimate live performances. It was around this time that fans nicknamed them ‘the spiz’ using some seriously unsophisticated Australian wordplay.
In the last two years the songwriting has grown to include elements of soul and blues music, and these influences are evident on the new album grand standard. Recorded by Craig Pilkington at Audrey studios and mastered by Ross Cockle at Sing Sing, this album affirms the adventure spirit’s readiness to reach larger audiences in Australia and abroad. A live TV appearance in late 2010 and a sterling performance at the 2011 St. Kilda festival would suggest this is the case
