“There was a other-worldly eeriness about the original which we wanted to capture in our interpretation. The lyrics are beautiful and powerful. We didn’t want to change much really. We slowed it down and got carried away with the vocoder in the studio and we put the melody a little off the beat – imagine an...

HISTORICAL BIO: Hunters & Collectors [Liberation]

From their beginnings back in 1981, Hunters & Collectors were always something of an anomaly. In their earliest forms the band was a loose, ambitious musical collective who, in the words of Rolling Stone, “filled an art-rock void in Melbourne”.

“Hunters & Collectors are a truly unique band. They don’t sound like anyone else and they sound so Australian, which I love. They had the tough-as-nails pub rock thing but they were also capable of writing incredibly heartfelt, beautiful songs. How many bands are there that can do that and do it so well? So...
