Today’s track of the day comes from Perth-based folk artist Jack Davies, with his latest song “Loving You’s Like A Mouldy Cup Of Tea”.
On the track, Davies and his band The Bush Chooks provide a delicate blend of acoustic guitar, banjo accordion and fiddle, allowing Davies’ poignant and old-soul storytelling to shine. The song’s familiarity hits listeners with a sense of warmth – a feeling we desperately need in recent times.
“…Mouldy Teat” is the opening track from the singer-songwriters’ forthcoming sophomore EP Songs For A Long Walk comes out this Friday.
“For me, the song really grounds the rest of the EP,” says Davies. “It feels true to how the songs have been written, sitting out the front of my house, singing it for the first time with George and Elise jamming along. Hector playing a little toy accordion, half the notes bust…it’s just a very homely song.”
Jack Davies and The Bush Chooks charm and unique storytelling hasn’t gone unnoticed. They have received critical acclaim including a WAM and SOTY award to their name, on top of a National Live Music Award for WA’s Best Live Act.
For those in WA, where COVID restrictions continue to ease, you’ll be able to catch Jack Davies at his EP launch this Friday at the Freo Social. Davies will be supported by local favourites New Nausea, Nika Mo and Clove. Tickets can be found HERE.
For those unable to make it to the show, this live performance from home might be the next best thing:
