about

In 2014 we released the brilliant “A Thousand Days” LP by the Rainyard, an early 90s quartet from Perth, Western Australia. Saddened to hear that their 2015 reformation was not to be, in their place we got the Jangle Band…

Lucky for us, this fill-in band featured a dream team of Australia pop musicians (including Jeff Baker from the Rainyard) and even better news was that they decided that it was to be more than a one-off live performance. Even though the members were spread across both sides of Australia, within 4 months they had written and recorded their debut album. We heard it, we loved it, we wanted it.

“Edge Of A Dream” is an album filled with 10 jewels and 10 reasons for still believing in melodies, harmonies and chiming guitars. It’s the sound of the Byrds, the wit of the Kinks and the heart of the Triffids.
It’s not a dream, it’s all here, don’t miss it, highly recommended!

Available now on limited edition vinyl at Pretty Olivia Bigcartel shop page.

Track Name: 282
I'm running for the 282
Twenty miles and an hour to chew
Now the weather is my only friend
Call in late for the great life once again.

Will I make the final train
For that slow and lonely ride again
And I’m reading all the signs you're gone
No more tea for two its just soup for one.

That summer rang she took the call call call
I know you always would be after all
But how much longer will you wait
the coffee's cold and I'm still straight
a piece still left upon my plate
the better days are left to fate
Don’t you hesitate

Over her shoulder to the evening news
Leads me down those avenues
And who's to blame for sunny days
When they can shine on either way

So will you tell me if you go
I just want to make it home
Cut the light and shut the gate
The better days are left to fate
Don’t you hesitate
Track Name: I love you too
Where was I when you came to this
particular place in the world
It always seems when I dream such dreams
I find myself out in the cold

We could be two if I just took you
And kept you to myself
But your wandering eyes that passed me by
And you’re dreaming with someone else

But if I gotta be
Then I’m gonna be
I don’t wanna be
The one who’s feeling blue

When he says
I love you like the sun it loves the sky
I love you like a rain that never dries
I love you like the wind between the trees
I love you and it brings me to my knees

And I dont wanna be
But if I gotta be
Then I’m gonna be
The one who’s feeling blue

Feeling Blue
I love you too
Track Name: Kill the lovers
Should we kill the lovers
So we can be friends
And now it's feeling like a start
When I thought that it would end

Twenty years just disappears
With your timeless smile
Can we know what brought us here
Stay where you are

There was nothing I missed
The first time around
And now a glance is filled with thoughts
The words can’t be found

You’re out there and I am here
There’s no star too far
Don’t let these feelings disappear
Stay where you

No longer hide
You took the life
From these empty hands
Just like no other
Let’s kill the lovers
And start again

Twenty years just disappears
With your timeless smile
Can we know what brought us here but
Stay who you are

Please do not hide
You took the life
From these empty hands
Just like no other
Let’s kill the lovers
And start again
Track Name: Edge of a dream
It was late, so late at night
The signs and the times were not quite right
Windows and the moon will be closing soon
Not a pretty sight to see

In a sweat, I couldn't take that bet
The ponies and the pets all I can get
Left an empty space to take your place
Counting all the clocks on my hands

And there you go
Any more colder and you'd think it would snow
Pilot lights won't help my sight
Help me find the sleep again.

I'm caught in the edge of a dream
One thing for certain it seems
The clothes I was wearing when I came in
been left in disrepair.

I'm caught up in the edge of a dream
Hoping to hear what it truly means
Took you to bed when the night turned red
I stumble in the dark these days.


I could take all that straight advice
keep it under cover and keep it real quiet
waiting on the sun to make me numb
see you in a better light
Track Name: Perth
Oh I feel
Like I’ll never leave this town
And the streets under my feet are holding me down

I guess it’s plain to see it
Perhaps it’s time to leave it
But the music’s out of time
Without you in my life

Oh I know
I’ll escape to just return
And the tarmac beneath my souls will always burn

What will be will be
Perhaps I’ll never leave it
But the music’s out of time
Without you in my life

I could go
But it will never leave me

Oh I feel
Like I’ll never leave this town
And the streets under my feet are holding me down

I guess it’s plain to see it
I guess I’ll never leave it
But the music’s out of time
Without you in my life
Track Name: Another light
Don't wanna know where all your thoughts
come to hide
I just need the summer sun
we left outside
And I could use a little piece
of empty pride
We only seem to choose the scenes
when you're alright (you're alright)

I don't need another light
(Your sunny days are always bright)
I don't need another light
(The better days are well in sight)
If you're alright.

Getting up and down these stairs
is easy when you care
I always seem to find you waiting
over there
It's not a game oh but I wish we played it just the same
The world seems brighter when I chance
upon your name (you’re alright
Track Name: It won't break
The day’s so slow
Everybody seems to have
Somewhere they have to go
We sit here alone

The night so long
Without a word you play me like
Someone’s unfinished song
Is that right or wrong?

And it’s to late to late
To melt the cold
It’s too long
Too hike the road
We still wait
It’s too late to fix the hole
If we leave where do we go
We still wait
And it wont break

The mindless game
Everybody looses so we don’t
Want to play
And dwell another day

Remote control
Searching for the week that has
The minute that we know
This is not our home

And it’s to late to late
To melt the cold
It’s too long
Too hike the road
We still wait
But it’s too late to fix the hole
If we leave where do we go
We still wait
And it wont break
Track Name: Let me breath
If you let me down slowly
You wont get to know me to well my dear
I’ll lay it on thick
But your on to my tricks I can tell

So don’t be afraid don’t
Let it all go to ruin
Tear off the band aid
And it will be over real soon

I’ll show you the door
That you’ll enter no more
Once you leave my love
I am not long for this earth if you don’t let me breathe

So don’t be surprised I m
Making things easy for you
I had a grand plan
And now I am seeing it through

So don’t act all crazy when
I let it all go straight to hell
It’s not that I’m lazy
But making my own way just isn’t my style
So I thought I would just string you along for awhile
It’s all your doing or so it would seem
Could have worked out if you just let me breathe

At least there is something that I will let you believe
I am not long for this earth if you don’t let me breathe
Let me breathe
Track Name: This soul is not for sale
The weight you carry is with love
It’s not with hate
You better realise
Before it gets too late

The rain will fall
The wind still knows the sun will shine
Dead Souls and ministers
You’re running outta time

The hour has come
To finish with their tales
The bells are ringing out
And Hearts will never fail
This soul is not for sale

This time is turning
The tide is setting low
If its worth fighting for
I’m never letting go

I may be weary
This cup of fire drained
But I will never fade
If this light alone remains

The hour has come
To finish with their tales
The bells are ringing out
And Hearts will never fail
This soul is not for sale
Track Name: Exile on Murray Street
The air was hot
The night was quiet
The city in the wake of a riot
We walked from Forrest Place to here
On heat alone and stolen beer

And I felt the face of where we came
Explode in front of me again
We could only whisper things
That would be soon
Exchanged in rings

Drove me down
Down in the light
We owned a little piece of the night
Now’s the time to not retreat
Exiled out on Murray Street

And I felt the face of where we came
Explode in front of me again
We could only whisper things
That would be soon
Exchanged in rings
