Many of the songs on the debut album explore that space – the queasy area where male behaviour normally regarded as acceptable drifts over into toxic masculinity.
Musically, the songs by turns evoke the sleazy disco of Pulp, the mid-life-crisis scuzz-rock of Grinderman-era Nick Cave, and the hangover-weary tenderness of Lambchop and Sparklehorse.
Singer John Palmer was previously the frontman of Half A Cow signing The Raylenes, and has more recently played guitar for Melbourne indie-pop auteur Georgia Fields. Chief collaborator Dave Rogers has played with Klinger, Ben Lee, Missy Higgins, Sophie Koh and Slow Fades.
John and Dave have collaborated on and off for 15 years, but Second Prize is their first joint project built from the ground up together. It stems from a long cold winter John spent alone in London while his girlfriend was living in sunny Miami. John spent the time writing sketches of songs and sending them to Dave to flesh out.
