The Necks are touring Australia in Feb/March 2020


Three is the 21st album of Australian trio The Necks. ‘Further’ is the third piece on what is a pretty diverse album. Admittedly it’s probably the piece that sounds the most like The Necks, which is great because it’s nothing short of stunning.

“The first track Bloom is intense, dense and chattering,” says bassist Lloyd Swanton of the new album Three. “The second track Lovelock is dedicated to the memory of Damien Lovelock and is still, spare and weightless. The final track Further is a groove in five meter that conjures an earlier Necks aesthetic. A friend described Further as the love-child of Sex and Aquatic.”
