This record is about growing up Australian. It’s short-story-songs are as pointed and potent with images of Australian life as a Tim Winton narrative and it is unapologetically longform.
Parenthesised by cicadas, singing the music of our bushland, Waugh paints parochial images of custard tarts served by a woman who call us ‘Love’ at the local bakery (‘The Weir’), fibreglass fruit discovered when we first see our country from the back seat of a car (‘Big Things’), Aussie rock legends forming the soundtrack to our cultural identity on Sunday night episodes of Countdown (‘This Song Reminds Me’).
There are mozzie bites (and other itches) tempting us to scratch when we meet our first love on beachside summer holidays (‘Seaspray’), distances between each other that we attempt to drive away on those long Australian highways (‘Be There’), and the unsophisticated, lived-in beauty of a relationship that has grown as comfortable as a dinner in front of an episode of Neighbours on a weeknight (‘Like I Used To’).
