Melbourne’s own Jordie Lane returns to Australia after over two years of international touring to release the first single from his eagerly awaited third album. The new single, freshly penned folk-garage-rock track ‘Frederick Steele McNeil Ferguson’ – just scratches the surface of a sound that is moving some distance away from his previously acoustic folk style.
Harking back to the flavour of Bob Dylan’s ‘Street Legal’ album, with spectral female chorale and an epic landscape created with a band sound that speaks of Neil Young travelling from solo to Crazyhorse, ‘Frederick Steele McNeil Ferguson’ spins a homegrown tale between a World War 1 veteran and the concept of ancestral sin passing down through generations.
