Alongside Hobbs who pens the songs is bassist/keyboardist Rie Nakayama, drummer Jen Sholakis and guitarist Rob Wrigley. Co-produced with Anna Laverty (Courtney Barnett, The Peep Tempel), the album is etched deeply with contrasts. For every spacious swath of majesty, there’s ample punked-up exorcism to match.
Following on from their 2014 Australian Music Prize-long listed Seven Drummers, Teddywaddy is the most profound and riotous statement of the band’s career, anchored at every turn by the ragged glory of Hobbs’ eruptive singing and the piercing details of his lyrics.
