The Model School - Every Bed I Made

The Model School - Every Bed I Made
Sydney 4-piece The Model School's eclectic evolution from masters of homespun
suburban pop to purveyors of widescreen rock and roll continues apace with their third
album Backwards Down The Highway (released Sep 20th). Built around the weather-
beaten vocals of songwriter Brendan Wixted the record heralds a full throttle trip
through the heartland of classic FM rock, via a crooked detour past Laurel Canyon,
early REM and Nebraska-era Springsteen, the songs twisting and turning through a
landscape strewn with broken dreams, neon lights and faded summer memories.

Wixted's journey through the highways and byways of Arizona in 2010 sparked the
genesis of the album, with many of the songs written whilst meandering through the
desolate landscape alone without much more than a dictaphone and a freshly acquired
3/4 size guitar. Little did he realize at the time just how rich the songs would become
once brought home - with Elvis Castro on lead guitar forging his own distinct sound
born of cosmic country and 60's pop. Wixted then bunkered down in the Blue
Mountains to finish writing the songs - with the wide open space and sense of
aloneness syncing perfectly with the material.

About this track...

A haunting tale delivered in stripped back style - features the sound of a howling storm and the eeriest backing vocals this side of Springsteen's Nebraska. Recorded in one take this is a later track from The Model School's Backwards Down the Highway album - one for late night listening.
