as opposed to a collection of songs. Bleak tales of murder, ghosts, demons
and pain, on a dark backdrop inspired by alt country, folk, reverb drenched
swampy rock, acoustic balladry and Dylan-esque slap-in-the-face,
venom-filled rockers. Haunting piano lines, mournful pedal steel and
lush string arrangements augment Davies' stark songwriting and
impassioned vocal delivery, which echos the tones of Bruce Springsteen,
Nick Cave and Win Butler (Arcade Fire). Born from a poetic compulsion
to tell the untold stories of the wretched of heart, the Devils Union
emerged like the fiery tongue of flame from a sparked match.
The Devil needs his comrades, and the Devil's Union is the closely knit group
that came together with redemption in mind. Producer, Matt Storey
(Howl At The Moon) was first on board, quickly followed by
Lauren Taffe (Papernecks) on piano and organ, Alex Hunter (Whitley)
on pedal steel, John Guscott (The Velocettes) on bass & Tim Anstice
(Graveyard Sons) on drums.
The band complete, they retreated to a cavernous warehouse on the
edge of Northcote, Melbourne. Rehearsed up the songs and hit record.
Each song captured in the first or second take.
