Child In The Desert Review

Child In The DesertThe seventh studio album by the Bondi Cigars is like a carefully crafted cocktail, refined through 26 years of experience and development.

The recipe begins with a base of blues and roots carefully mixed together so that neither element overpowers the other. Then, as the album progresses we begin to get a little more complex and experimental with the additions of some other genres, which the band are clearly respectful of and passionate about, such as funk and R&B.

Across the 12-track offering, Child In The Desert continues to offer up new layers and complexities, which helps to avoid the album becoming entrenched in the sad blues vibe. Bondi Cigars manage to employ an upbeat vibe thanks to the dash of R&B zing.
