Contrary to popular belief, the Aussie trio didn't appear from nowhere like some magical perfect parcel at the end of 2012, they've been together for nearly four years, so reports of a meteoric rise are greatly exaggerated. That said, it has only been the past year that things have started moving for the band, and now we arrive a new single 'Maybelene'. Hype justified? Well, just about. This is a grungy, dirty, bluesy rock track with a screamed vocal and a simple, repetitive melody. Some of the best songs ever have been the epitome of simplicity, so this is no criticism. The song is good, it's not a let down, but it's also far from being any kind of classic; 'Maybelene' is more the kind of song that will win the band a cult following who (as cult followings do) will go mad for anything and everything they do. In short: a good single, but far too early, and on this evidence, not quite enough to proclaim them next big things just yet.
