In a setting befitting of the song’s narrative, the clip features the three band members with stunning lead vocalist, Kylie Whitney, the poker protagonist.
Written by Whitney and Carpenter, the new single shows a maturity in their writing punctuated by production that seethes while it builds through to an explosive bridge. As with much of The April Family catalogue, the 3-part harmony that distinguishes them is once again at the fore, making for a distinct and potent re-introduction to the Australian Country Music landscape.
The April Family have been quietly working away, building a name and a steady body of work since forming in 2015. Featuring the enigmatic Kylie Whitney on lead vocals, the skills of Casey Atkins on lead guitar and backing vocals, and the production and all-rounder abilities of Michael Carpenter on rhythm guitar and backing vocals, the band developed a sound that fused Classic Country with the timeless colours of West Coast American Country Rock.
