- Mr Bongo
Instrumental jazz-funk tinged soul with brooding cinematic atmospheres. Dramatic ebbs and flows reminiscent of vintage David Axelrod productions, recorded in suburban Melbourne.
Daylight Savings is the second full-length album by Melbourne's cinematic soul journeymen Surprise Chef.
Recorded over a weekend in Surprise Chef's DIY analogue studio (dubbed The College Of Knowledge), Daylight Savings expands on the dramatic 1970s cinematic soul sound established on their acclaimed first album, 2019's All News Is Good News.
Created in Spring 2019, just as the jasmine bush in the backyard of the College Of Knowledge was coming to full bloom, Daylight Savings is filled with the optimism and hope that comes with the impending long, warm evenings after a dreary Melbourne winter.
