Mermaid Avenue mix their indie rock and alt.country with a healthy dose of 90’s classicism and oz rock swagger on their debut record ‘Temptation And Half the Truth’.
“We wanted to make a traditional album – one you can play from start to finish. Lyrically, the album charts the ups and downs of relationships from first kiss to the ‘bliss’ of domesticity along with the darker themes of losing loved ones, lost time and jealousy”.
Since first cutting their teeth live in 2015, Mermaid Avenue have become a regular feature on the Brisbane scene driven by the prolific songwriting of singer Peter Clarke and musicianship of Darren Madeo (lead guitar), John Doyle (bass) and Anthony Judd (drums). In early 2018 they expanded their line up with the addition of keyboardist Marc Besselink formerly of Dutch neo-progsters Kramer.
The sessions for ‘Temptation And Half the Truth’ began in late 2016 and continued over the course of 2017 at The Barn Recording Studio in the Lockyer Valley. The album was produced by Steve Robin and mastered at the Chicago Mastering Service by Margaret Luther.
‘Temptation And Half The Truth’ is out now and available on Spotify, iTunes, Applemusic, Bandcamp, CD baby and many more.
