Single: Broken Toys
Artist: Kilbey & Koch
Release Date: 12th April 2019
Label: The Planet Company
The Australian Duo Kilbey & Koch have created a single that conjures up the wilderness of the Australian outback in a track that haunts the memory. 'Broken Toys' draws its inspiration from lost objects from childhood and long-forgotten days as shown in the lyrics:
Sitting here with the seaweed and a cold beer
Nearly at the end of the pier, just here
And it appears to manifest as a white day
Gone awry, gone astray, ok
Broken toys expect delays
Someone says our lives' a maze
Which time destroys
Sunken mornings turn to days
Drunk on all the grief and joys
Of broken toys
Coming home with just a shilling in my pocket
Saw the door but there's no way to unlock it
I'm gonna hit it
Broken toys on crooked shelves
Doing badly acted versions of ourselves
Spoken words into the void
Woke up all the girls and boys
With their broken toys
Falling snowflake in your hair
There with all the grace and poise
Of broken toys
Australian Music icon Steve Kilbey
& classically trained ARIA Award winner Gareth Koch have collaborated to create a pared-down sound, with a 'bare bones' atmosphere. This song has stripped down acoustics in the most natural sense that leaves you with the taste of salt air in your mouth and a stark wind whipping around your hair.
Steve Kilbey is best known as the frontman of the popular rock 'The Church' and Gareth Koch brings in the classical element to the music hailing from a background of Classical Viennese training.
This is a thoughtful and atmospheric track ideal for long hot summer evenings.
