Dallas Crane – The Sunnyside (Video Review)

Melbourne legends, Dallas Crane have been entertaining audiences since 1996 with their quintessential Aussie Rock, their energetic performances and Dave Larkin’s powerful vocals.

With previous hits like Numb all over, Ladybird, Curiosity and their previous album Factory Girls released way back in 2006, it has been a long time between the proverbial drink. I’m Sorry Darling was released in 2013, however, it was only late last year that the album Scoundrels was finally let loose on the world, so I was looking forward to seeing if they still had it or whether their spotlight had finally dimmed after such a long absence.
After watching their latest clip, The Sunnyside (directed by Charco and filmed by Courtney Hart), a simple, yet effective, black and white video inspired by The White Stripes, it is safe to say that Dallas Crane will not be going away any time soon. They remain true to what they started back in ’96 while still managing to sound fresh and their new album Scoundrels will hopefully inject some much needed life back into Aussie Rock.
The wailing guitars, the heavy kick drum and the familiar scratchy vocals combined makes you want to get amongst it in a moshpit (or just screaming out the lyrics with “alcohol and rock and roll”, dancing in your living room like no one is watching). The Sunnyside is reminiscent of days gone by and makes you long for the good old days when the radio was filled with rock music rather than EDM and hip-hop.

If you haven’t seen Dallas Crane live yet, please, do yourself a favour and check them out. The energy they have, their music and their love for their craft will ensure that a brilliant night is had by all and will leave you feeling warm, satisfied (and, if the night is carried out successfully, Numb All Over.

My name is Karen and I have been taking photos of bands since 2011. As I get more and more hooked on photography, I have also started branching out into anything that comes my way (including reviews etc) and I am starting to turn my passion into a business (living the dream!). I absolutely love my live music, especially the Perth Scene (some would even say addicted). I enjoy getting out there as often as I can, taking shots and chatting to people so if you are in Perth, come say hi :)
