After enchanting critics and audiences alike with the lull of their single Dark Water, and slaying support slots for the likes of Swervedriver and Ash, Charlie Horse are finally set to release their sophomore album, Strange Passenger, on October 11. The release will be bolstered by a slew of scintillating live shows both home and abroad.

When Paul McDonald and Crystal Rose met by chance in a Balmain pub and bonded over 70's Springsteen, Neil Young and Ryan Adams it was the start of a romance that also led to the creation of the passionate, widescreen rock n roll of Charlie Horse. The hotly anticipated follow-up to 2012’s I Hope I Am Not a Monster, Strange Passenger began to emerge between the summer and winter of 2013 with songs that were more diversely-styled than their previous offering, some of which were road-tested at support slots with Stan Ridgway (Wall of Voodoo) and Ash and as East Coast tour guests of Brisbane’s We All Want To.

The spirit of their debut is still present the new material, but now the ghosts of post punk, Phil Spector and indie rock have been assimilated into the devastating soundscape, emblazoned with the full range of the band’s musical influences. With all members of the band contributing to its recording (including new bassist Chris Familton) and McDonald again producing, the resulting album feels like both an expansion and refinement of the dark, desirous and unflinchingly cinematic sound of Charlie Horse.
