Reg So there I was, listening to Heaps of Nothing -- but on a sudden thought I of a thought thought: hey! (I thought) I remember there was some song about a clock that is not on this album -- I wonder if it's on Bandcamp!
Well, readers of my tale, here we are. Clock song indeed.

Patrick Taylor Stumbled across this while looking for local post-punk, and sonically speaking it's everything I could've hoped for from a mysterious soundtrack to a short experimental horror film that doesn't exist (or may as well not exist; where is it???). In general, this tiny release is almost too cool, unique and unsettling to be real, but here it is for your listening enjoyment. Prepare to be transported to the middle of nowhere. Favorite track: High Noon.

about

Having expanded from the no-wave two piece of Lucy Cliche and Matthew Hopkins to a fully fleshed out four piece including drummer Lachlan Vercoe and bassist Nic De Jong, our favorite Australian outcasts return with a stunning EP as their follow-up to last year’s full length Heaps of Nothing. This EP is a bit lighter in mood and delivery; in the words of the band’s own Hopkins it’s a bit like, “Dracula fronting the B-52’s.” While this is certainly Hopkins taking the piss, opening track, “The Gift” is a perfectly modern homage to past dark lords such as Bauhaus and Christian Death.

Twelve Dark Noons serves as a companion piece to the short experimental film of the same name directed by Jacqueline Castel and produced by Night People Records and Caleb Braaten of Sacred Bones. It stars the band’s core duo Lucy & Matthew in a horrific mental unraveling set in the Australian outback. NOTV have already toured the US and EU extensively playing shows with Blank Dogs, Wolf Eyes, Times New Viking, Om, Jandek and Thee Oh Sees amongst others.
