Songbroker Song of the Day: Five Mile Town - 'Curious Creatures'
Alternative rock band Five Mile Town are sadly no longer, but the songs remain as a testament to their musical and songwriting talents.
FMT released their first single in 2012 the band had humble goals. After their music video ‘Saturated’ received over 50,000 views on Youtube in a week, momentum built and their debut self-titled EP quickly followed. That same year their song ‘Fatal Flaw’ was APRA Silver Scroll nominated and ‘You Would Know’ won the International Songwriting Competition Teen Category, cementing the band as one to watch.
2013 saw the band move to Melbourne where they continued to develop their sound by touring Australia.
The release of their Sophomore EP ‘Other Ghosts’, recorded by Andrew Buckton (Midnight Youth, Clap Clap Riot), brought a strong end to 2013. Singles ‘Curious Creature’ and ‘Solo’ showcased a band matured beyond their years.
’Curious Creatures’ is an instantly engaging track with a pounding drumbeat and memorable guitar riff that conjures the likes of Mumford & Sons and Edward Sharpe.
