A classic rock band but not an over the top screaming yelling rock n' roll monster, this is the sound of a band who like to keep things quiet and wouldn't say no to an acoustic set, but not tonight: tonight we wanna rock.

Biography

Sharp Practise are a classic rock band but not an over the top screaming yelling rock n' roll monster, this is the sound of a band who like to keep things quiet and wouldn't say no to an acoustic set, but not tonight: tonight they wanna rock. And rock we do.

The kind of thing Neil Finn has made his trademark over the years with dramatic Who-style powerchords and furious discoid drumming - recalls INXS before they went crap and got bloated. Urgent, in a word. Clearly, we are a band that, like our antipodean pop-rocking cousins, isn’t afraid of the three M’s: Musicianship, Mateship and Mellifluousness.

New CD Radiocity is essentially an album about travel - in both the literal and emotional sense – and is a pure delight in a music world where style is often preferable to substance. The production job is one of exceptional quality as well. There’s a strong sense of universality and relatability on here which draws you in, like listening to ‘Cats in the Cradle’ with your dad, or travelling through a foreign country on your own (particularly Down Under!) with a smile on your face and the sun on your back. This should go down well with fans of the Counting Crows and Big Country.
