Your coolest and most dangerous relative is back in town. Emerging from the wilderness in with a four-tracker and a self-titled debut album, the Sydney trio soon garnered attention at home and abroad, with NME labelling them one of the Best New Bands of This earned them the opportunity to contribute a B-side for the legendary London label Too Purebefore releasing another EP Dreamcrusher in With big ups from the Big Scary peeps after touring with them a few years back, the old pals got together and tracked the album in a week.
It opens Step-Panther - Strange But Nice a brief, stripped-back acoustic that repeats the titular line. The opener is followed by Nowherewhere sharp percussion is soon joined by catchy, twangy guitars.
It Came from the Heart lends a pleasant air with slower paced percussion and a singular shiny guitar, set against the lovelorn confessions of the lyrics. User Friendly immediately ups the ante with dense fuzzy chords, before Candy in the Sky returns to the rangle jangle with a catchy pop rhythm reminiscent of some early, old-school inspired Little Red.
Something Must Be Done starts with a slow guitar intro before Step-Panther - Strange But Nice into Step-Panther - Strange But Nice a Jesse James - Pitbullfarm - Pitbullfarm rebel song; although with minimal lyrics, the cause is never revealed.
Number One Fan concludes the album as a sweet, slow, intimate tune with intertwining bass and soft guitar. The lyrics are again left to be ambiguous as to what is being desired, but one thing for certain is that there will be plenty of people vying for the title of No. With a sound as lo-fi and slacker as ever, the tracks retain the catchy and melodic side that sets Step-Panther apart.
