NEW MUSIC: Hercules & The Bricks – Gena Rowlands

This track (named after the American actress Gena Rowlands) by Melbourne group Hercules & The Bricks, snuck up on us and burrowed into our synapses over the last week or two. There’s a post-punk cabaret vibe, a dramatic noir aesthetic that gives the song a timeless feel. It could have come out of the 80s art-pop underground yet it draws a line right through Melbourne bedsits across the decades, right up to the knowing styles of Jack Ladder and Alex Cameron. Get lost with The Bricks.
