In 2013, rural-born brothers Dave and Aiden McMillian traded the sun-drenched plains of northern New South Wales for the rich cultural tapestry — and comparatively dreary weather — of Melbourne. 2015 sees the two siblings (alongside Andre Franco on bass) continue to draw influence from their provenance in Redspencer.
Latest single ‘Happy Slow Riverbends’ is a hark back to the band’s humble beginnings, evok- ing images of balmy, mid-summer drives along the coast with the windows down. Channeling the trademark nonchalance of ‘90s cult-classics Yo La Tengo, the three-piece go about their music armed with jangly guitars and vocals packed with warmth and charm, rousing compari- sons to the likes of Deerhunter and Spoon.
With festival appearances at Brisbane’s Big Day Out and Camp Casual, and a support slot alongside The Preatures to their name, Redspencer are soon to be firing on all cylinders with the release of their debut EP next month.
