Since launching Dirt Farmer, their “pop gem” (Gemma Pike, Triple J) debut single in 2012, Perth 5 piece The Disappointed have picked up national airplay on Triple J, supported Perth’s Emperors, Adelaide’s Dexter Jones and played shows all over WA. Their Dave Parkin (Emperors, Jebediah) produced debut EP Stranger is due to drop in May 2013 with a WA tour in June and a national tour in August.
The EP is a harmony laden blend of jagged new wave, lush pop and alternative rock, a thought provoking humanist ode to life’s grey areas. The single Every Made Up Eye In The City is an oddly heart warming call to empathy and a tightly wound bouncy pop gem. Top shelf hooks, accomplished songwriting and an ambitious blend of light and dark run through Stranger from top to toe. 2013 is going to be a big one for The Disappointed.
