Following on from 2017’s sold out self-titled LP, Dark Town is the much anticipated second release from Brisbane alt-country outfit, Suicide Country Hour.
The new album expands on the introspective feeling of their first release with a darker, more heartbroken collection of songs which speak to the bitterness and sadness in us all.
It’s the epitome of ‘hangover music’ and most importantly…no drummers, no dramas.
Dark Town was launched online on 17/06/2020 during the covid-19 lockdown at Airlock Studios as part of their Up In The Airlock series of streaming events, hosted by Powderfinger’s Ian Haug. Watch the broadcast here.

“Recorded 2019 at Hobo HQ. Written in a Richmond dive 10 years earlier. Left to pickle for the decade. Me too. Nice Flamin’ Groovies guitar work Shadow Kid.”
When you’re in the room, I feel uncomfortable.
Standing next to you, I feel uncomfortable.
Diver dressed in blue,
oh what’s a boy to do;
Fish Food falls through the roof…So much more to me and you than you and me,
got shores that slope into the sea,
dark oceans fold on them at night,
and Cuttlefish die in the bright white light.
Their bones make good Bird Food.
