Formed in 2015, Sydney band Medusa's Wake play music that is modern, but has traditional roots.
With the recent release (1 June) of their debut album 'Rascals And Rogues', Medusa's Wake's music is undeniably Australian, yet distinctly Irish at the same time.
The first track off 'Rascals And Rogues' is 'Seldom Sober' and scenestr is premiering the song's video today. Get your toes tapping.
"Medusa's Wake recorded this video in Norton's Irish Pub in Leichardt [Sydney] on an early Sunday morning about three weeks ago." the band's frontman Eddie Lawlor says.
"A little bit of nerves in front of the camera was shown at first, but was gently washed away by an early drop of grog from Bar Manager at Norton's John Seymour. Naturals one and all!
"Jonathan Sequeira was our director and a fine job he did. It was good fun and everybody loved the end product."
Ahead of the album's launch show next week at Norton's, Eddie details how the record came together. "Our album was recorded in Damien Gerard Studio's in Balmain. We where thrust in to the welcoming arms of the brilliant Russ Pilling.
"From the get-go Russ just oozed class. A great ear for sound and had us all feeling at ease, which made the recording process so much easier. All six of us could not recommend him highly enough."
