Exploring themes of relationship breakdowns, disenchantment, forgiveness and gratitude towards family, Meraki is the expansive collective’s follow-up to 2020’s critically-acclaimed debut Petrichor.
Building upon songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Murray Webber’s deeply resonant vocals and heartbreaking lyrics, These Idle Hands conjure a beautiful album, uplifted by haunting orchestration and enchanting backing vocals.
Following on from their highly impressive mid 2020 release, ‘Petrichor’, multi-faceted alt-folk collective These Idle Hands have once again alighted onto the musical landscape with a sweeping, eleven track song-suite which goes by the name of ‘Meraki’.
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’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 ✌️❤️
