Ball Park Music Belong In A Museum

Guess who's back like they never left? Before you've even had time to miss them, Ball Park Music — who released their first LP, Happiness And Surrounding Suburbs, less than 12 months ago — are preparing to drop their sophomore effort, Museum, on October 5. Who do they think they are, The Beatles?

Well, pretty much, yeah. The quick turnaround comes as a result of frontman / resident genius Sam Cromack's challenge to his cohorts to release a new album within 12 months of their first, inspired by The Beatles' tendency to deliver new records every 6 to 12 months.

Being something of a perfectionist, Cromack insists Museum doesn't sound rushed. If lead-off single 'Surrender', an absolute earworm of a record, is any indication, we believe him.

Happiness And Surrounding Suburbs scored two songs in this year's Hottest 100, and also earned the band an Unearthed Artist Of The Year gong at the J Awards. A sold-out 30 date tour, and prime position on the Groovin' The Moo and Splendour In The Grass line-ups, solidified their status as one of Australia's most heralded young bands.
