Now cemented himself as the iconic sound of Aussie rock for the past two decades, Powderfinger frontman Bernard Fanning is back with a great new single ‘Isn’t It A Pity’.
The new single is the first track from Fanning’s new LP Brutal Dawn, the follow up to 2016’s Civil Dusk.
"͞I was listening to Bobby Blue Bland͛s ͚Ain͛t No Love In The Heart Of The City͛, Bernard explains, ͞and I loved the way the Philly strings gave it a lot more melody and power without making it beefy. When we recorded it we were deliberately trying to keep it from rocking too much so we replaced what were horns, with strings and it did the trick. Clare Bowditch helped on the weird minory backing vocals which helps it all sound big, without being heavy. It was a bit of an arm wrestle this song, but I love where it ended up.͟"
