Max Savage and the False Idols

Max Savage_1_web

Stories of hearbreak, loneliness and redemption, are the stock of a group that peddles music of a kind not heard in Australia for a very, very long time.

With a lyrical style firmly rooted in the traditions of the Go-Betweens and Paul Kelly, the False Idols are a band of exceptionally gifted young musicians who fit seamlessly into the twin traditions of country and soul. With a rock and roll swagger that belies a deep respect for the songwriting tradition that they continue, Max Savage brings a sound that is both mesmerising and heartbreakingly honest.
