Last Leaves

Based around the songwriting of Marty Donald, Last Leaves is a more sonically adventurous proposition to his earlier band The Lucksmiths. Calling in old bandmates Mark Monnone and Louis Richter on bass and guitar respectively, and with the addition of drummer Noah Symons (Great Earthquake), the result is a more panoramic, dreamy sound, to blend with the variation in lyrical direction. Having recently moved from the city to the hills outside of Melbourne, Marty Donald's new material has largely forsaken his familiar inner-suburban milieu for the open spaces beyond — for coastal hamlets, country highways and mountainside motels.
