Appropriately named Australian band descending from the Rainyard and the Palisades, “Edge of a Dream” is a record you immediately feel comfortable with. Like an old friend you haven’t seen in years, but the conversation picks up like you saw each other yesterday. In 2014 we released the brilliant “A Thousand Days” LP by the Rainyard, an early 90s quartet from Perth, Western Australia. Saddened to hear that their 2015 reformation was not to be, in their place we got the Jangle Band

Lucky for us, this fill-in band featured a dream team of Australia pop musicians (including Jeff Baker from the Rainyard) and even better news was that they decided that it was to be more than a one-off live performance. Even though the members were spread across both sides of Australia, within 4 months they had written and recorded their debut album. We heard it, we loved it, we wanted it.


“Edge Of A Dream” is an album filled with 10 jewels and 10 reasons for still believing in melodies, harmonies and chiming guitars. It’s the sound of the Byrds, the wit of the Kinks and the heart of the Triffids.
It’s not a dream, it’s all here, don’t miss it, highly recommended!
