Clearly acolytes of The Church of The Band (which is only ever a good thing), Raised By Eagles third album is a rambling, sprawling serve of pastorally inclined Americana, built at the place where country and folk influences are just as important as rock and blues (or more), and to think: they hail not from the Appalachians, but Melbourne, Australia!

Storytelling and emotion are the prize at the end of this rainbow, Raised By Eagles’ songs are rich in human emotion, drenched with desire and dreams, and it’s hard to imagine that for a group only four years old, they are accomplished enough to not only play and write this well, but also to have taken their act to Nashville itself and won over the locals.

There’s a wistful sentiment to tracks like I Must Be Somewhere, Dreamer and Everyday, Everyday: the listener is left in no doubt that Raised By Eagles has something important to say, and there’s little doubt that wherever they are, they’ll be somewhere better yet by the time the next album comes around.
