Hello Frenz, long time follower, Frenz life member and occasional poster here. I'd love for you all to have a listen to my band Mode Atlanta. These are our first two recorded tracks, they're called "They Love You" and "Garden Varieties". The reason i post them here is because Crowded House and Neil Finn's music has been a huge influence on my own songwriting, from the way i present my music (artwork that evokes childhood but through the eyes of adulthood, thanks Nick to lyrical matter (kitchen sink with a melancholic and poetic approach) to my approach to chords and melody (aiming for and hopefully getting somewhere near the richness and easy sophistication of Neil's musical ideas). "They Love You" is about a character who can't accept or doesn't understand the love he receives from people around him (there's autobiography in there as well and "Garden Varieties" looks at the same character, on a day off, trying to find motivation but letting events from his past circle his head and hold him back. I hope you all enjoy the music! Here's the link!
PS. To those going to the Friday 25th Sydney Opera House show, i'll see you there!
