Magic Dirt were a big ol’ band for me. And the Adalita solo albums also took a big hold.
So, when Adalita personally recommends an act, brings them on tour and plays bass with them, then I’ll probably take some notice.
Dark Fair are a duo originally from Brisbane but now based down in Melbourne. Their new track ‘Poison’ features Adalita on bass and it’s dark – the lyrics and almost melancholic instrumentation add this sludgieness. But it’s not all doom and gloom – the sparse keys brighten the track up just enough, and that relentless pushy groove ensures that it still packs just the right amount of perkiness.
The track is taken from the bands new EP You Shouldn’t Be Mine which is due out at the end of the month.
