Back in the mid 80's a band from Australia was the one a lot of people could agree to. Some people from down under called them a post-punk band but for me they were always a very talented singer-songwriter band with roots in new wave and pop. The Triffids were always a band that took me back to the old days where songs were created and searched for the perfect pop song. I played their records recently and have to admit that their bleak and melancholic folk didn't lost it's attraction during the years.
The Triffids - Bury Me Deep In Love
The Triffids - Whide Open Roads
