Another wonderful Australian band you should be listening too, Instead of calling this an album, Black Springs chose to call “When We Were Great” a compilation of songs from their past giving you the idea that the band are no longer together maybe lets hope not ?. Mystery aside, this record has elements of dreampop, shoegaze and jangle and a confidence that has me pulling for them to make another record.

Sydney four-piece Black Springs have released their debut LP. Mixed by Caleb Jacobs (aka Plum) and boldly titled ‘When We Were Great’, it sure is a moody collection of guitar reverie. The buoyancy of singles Boys In Blue and Slinky Day make way for more fragile yet equally catchy moments throughout with a healthy dose of the band’s trademark wig-outs thrown in for good measure (Bitter and Twisted, Staying in Again).
