"1-800-Mum-Dad" by Melbourne's Lupine feels trippy and a bit crazy (smiling)

1-800-Mum-Dad by Lupine sounds a little crazy. Maybe it is the stacatto guitar riff that seems to move forward and then backward or the retro synth organ sound that could be straight out of a horror pop song or Thomas James' vocals that glide into lush falsettos and feels deliciously proto punk / art rockish or maybe it is that "thing" that I can't quite place my finger on. Whatever it is I love this interesting blend of sounds and their off kilter aesthetic. 

Lupine is from north east Melbourne starting as a solo project of the aforementioned singer-songwriter / guitarist Thomas James. The other song shape makers are Dean Tosis on bass, Lily Sawenko on keys, Tom Putland on guitar and Jake Leahy on drums and adding his production talents.
