Three years after the release of their highly-frothed underground debut EP, Sydney’s other-worldly indie rock minstrels A.D.K.O.B. have re-emerged from their tune cave with a brand new toe-tapper dubbed ‘Chalkline’.
Mixed by Luke Million (I Know Leopard, Carmouflage Rose, Luke Million) & produced by A.D.K.O.B. themselves, the gently lapping bop conceals an aching sadness beneath its sunny grooves and lush wash of male and female vocal harmonies, with multi-instrumentalist band leader Mark Piccles explaining that the song speaks to the kind of confusion and desperation that humans feel when faced with an impossible situation, but still wanting to see the best in it.
In his own words:
“It’s a song about what it means to learn from mistakes, or perhaps that some times you don’t learn at all.”
‘Chalkline’ has been lifted from A.D.K.O.B.’s forthcoming second EP NOTHING IS A WASTE OF TIME, which is set for release later this year.
