Mount Defiance pride themselves on two things; their ability to spin musical yarns that might make you both and happy and sad, and they also have heaps of fun.
Hailing from Melbourne, four-piece take elements of indie rock, slacker rock, and punk rock to create a visceral soundscape veering between intimate confessionals and rambling rock tunes.
New single “Teamwork” – the second track off upcoming EP ‘Yankee Flat’ – brilliantly highlights the band’s ability to use lyrical metaphor to tell a story. Coupling a sense of humour with intricate wordplay, “Teamwork” is a song about feeling like the best version of yourself when you are with other people.
It’s also a song about making coffee.
‘Yankee Flat’ EP was recorded at Homestead Studios in Mount Helen, which is truly God’s country, and is full of all the intimate musical yarns, happy songs, sad songs, friendship, and rock ’n’ roll you’re looking for.
‘Yankee Flat’ EP is out now.
