Melbourne trio Pure Moods released their new album Upward Spiral late last year and this is one of the feature tracks from it, ‘Backwards World’. The song has that familiar lackadaisical Australian indie jangle and strum while also drawing a line back to Trans-Tasman bands such as The Chills. The rest of the album operates in similarly pleasing territory, ambling along in its own mellow and melodic world.
Pure Moods is the recording moniker of Adam Madric who has played in various Melbourne outfits (Bad Family, Closet Straights, Pearl Bay) before creating this name for his solo material. Upward Spiral is a selection of home recordings put together between 2016-2019.
