Michael Savage – “Nothing Good”


Pleasant guitar twangs and a slight backing organ kick off the delectable “Nothing Good” from Michael Savage, an artist out of Fremantle, Western Australia whose joyous sound is inspired by fellow Australian coastal guitar-pop successes The Go-Betweens and The Lucksmiths. Savage’s own spin on the “feel good hit of the summer,” the track is a blissful and breezy psych-pop journey that sports a soaring hook, first emerging at 01:12. The track – produced by Ricky Maymi (of The Brian Jonestown Massacre) and a part of Savage’s upcoming third album – “Nothing Good” rides on captivating guitar jangles and vocal harmonies, reminding of those aforementioned influences as well as shimmering psych-tinged rock in the vein of Smith Westerns.

Savage and his band will show off the track on Friday, November 24th at new CBD venue The Sewing Room.
