Brisbane’s Halfway have had an impressive start for their fifth album ‘The Golden Halfway Record’ which hit stores over the weekend. Not only did they score TWO five star reviews from The Australian and The Courier Mail, but they came in at #6 on an ABC Brisbane listener’s poll of the Best Queensland bands of all time. For a band that redefined a quintessentially Australian sound on their 2014 classic ‘Any Old Love’, Queensland’s Halfway travelled halfway around the world to record their follow up ‘The Golden Halfway Record’ in Nashville, Tennessee. Working with lauded producer Mark Nevers (Calexico, Bonnie Prince Billy, George Jones) and releasing for the first time through ABC Music, the band left to find a global sound and returned with an ode to adolescence in Halfway’s core duo John Busby and Chris Dale’s hometown of Rockhampton.
“The Golden Halfway Record reaches beyond the tight confines of genre and their ambition really pays off… The emotional weight and tight songwriting are as impressive as ever.” – TheMusic
