Every now and then, some music comes into my life that makes me stop and appreciate just how magic music really is. Every now and then, I am near lost for words because a piece of music touches me so deeply, so emotionally, that I cry. I sit and I cry while I listen.
With ‘Petrichor’, These Idle Hands have crafted a richly rewarding song-suite. This is music, much like fine wine, to be imbibed and savoured within the shadowy twilight of self-reflection and contemplation, rewarding aplenty those seeking an emotionally resonant listening experience.
Petrichor puts the band’s penchant for illustrative balladry and introspective songwriting front and centre, melding soaring violin melodies with bellowing double bass amidst a striking palette of sonic elements.
Here’s a little taste of a song called ‘Jerusalem Creek’ on our upcoming album. In the meantime you can catch us on the radio with Matt Webber 91.7 ABC Coast FM Friday after 10am. I’ll be chatting about our latest release’Just Maybe’ amongst other things These Idle Hands. 😊❤️
Here it is folks!!! Our second single ’Just Maybe’ We’d be stoked if you could add this to a playlist or share it with your friends. This would please the music robot gods greatly & hopefully put us in good favour. Huge thanks to Scotty French @ Love St Studio’s & Paul Blakey @ 12th & Vine Post Production for their amazing work on this track. Hope you enjoy 🙏😊❤️

Here’s something I wrote last week amidst this craziness & uncertainty. It’s called ‘Week About’. It is a result of the anxiety I’ve been feeling being a “week about” Dad in all this & trying to make sense of how it’s all going to pan out. Stay Safe folks ✌️❤️
Here’s a little progress snippet of a song in its infancy named’Vision Board’. It’s a bit of a darker turn (which is kinda fun😬) The themes relate to people (mostly men) who embrace spirituality for less ethical reasons, or to satisfy their libidinous desires. Big thanks to Emma Cooper for the co-write on the lyrics. Hope you like it. Stay home & make stuff!! Lots of love ✌️💜 #goldcoastmusic #altfolk #altrock #blankgc #loveststudio
