Easily avoiding the sophomore curse, Now We Are Young is a slow-paced, sun-drenched ride. Tracks such as ‘Drip’ and ‘If You Run’ juxtapose the subtle delivery of vocalist Lachie Stanley with an effortless summer vibe. Those willing to dig a little deeper will find a lyrical depth that underpins their development and provides The Complimentary Headsets with a stark point of difference.
Also noteworthy is the superb production from Tim Johnston, an experienced buttonman who has worked with the likes of Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, the Dandy Warhols and the Stereophonics.
We’ll await their full-length debut with warm anticipation.
