What: Crosswords by Super Wild Horses.
When: April 5 through Dot Dash/Remote Control.
Key notes: Second album for Melbourne duo of Amy Franz and Hayley McKee, after 2010’s On Rotation debut Fifteen. Recorded with Jack Farley (Beaches, Scott & Charlene’s Wedding) in regional Victoria at a former butter factory and culled down from 22 tracks cut over three days. Later fleshed out at Farley’s Transient Studios with guest spots from Liam Kenny (Bitch Prefect, Peak Twins) and Rick Milovanovic (Boomgates, Twerps). Includes lead single 'Alligator' and a reverb-y rendition of the Smokey Robinson classic 'You’ve Really Got a Hold on Me'.
From the presser: “Crosswords is a reflection on the guessing game of life; the times you get it right, and the times when you’re left staring at the aftermath of a bad decision. The album sees the duo exploring a wider range of influences from soul, country and pop and, at times, even more melancholic tones.”
