Since forming in high school, Brisbane band The Goon Sax - the trio of Riley Jones, Louis Forster and James Harrison, best friends who take turns writing, singing, and playing each instrument - have been celebrated for their unpretentious, kinetic homemade pop.
‘Mirror ll’, The Goon Sax’s first album for Matador, is something else entirely: a new beginning, a multi-dimensional eclectic journey of musical craftsmanship that moves from disco to folk to no wave skronk with staggering cohesion. Gone are the first-person insecurities of their school days - they’ve been made expansive, more universal, more weird.
‘Mirror II’ is intense, the sum of everything that has always made The Goon Sax great: robust sprechgesang, raw lyrical candour, ascending guitar pop structures that would make the most storied jangle bands blush, elevated into their newfound narrative verisimilitude and expanded sonic experimentations.
