The Wild Comforts -- Ben Drane, Kinch Kinski, Joshua Deeble and Josh Redford - will launch their new EP in Canberra on Wednesday.
Wild quartet ready to rock
Melbourne based alternative-country
band The Wild Comforts are returning
to Canberra on Wednesday to launch
their newest EP Silver City Sorrow at
the Smiths Alternative Bookshop.
Frontman Joshua Deeble said he
had never anticipated the mates he
roped in to help him record a solo
project in 2011 would forge ties and
become a band.
"I was just song writing and really
wanted to make an album but none of
my friends really wanted to commit to
a band," he said. "My friends came in
just as session musicians but we had
such a good time we walked out of the
studios as a band."
The group bedded their first album
before ever playing a gig together.
Since 2011 they've gone on to make
toes tap and hearts melt across
Silver City Sorrow was recorded last
March with infamous country
musician Bill Chambers and the
album's lead single Cosette features
vocals from Bill's daughter Kasey
Chambers. Growing up in Broken Hill,
Deeble said he initially rebelled
against the adoration of country music.
"Where I grew up there was only
two types of music, country and
western," he said.
"I didn't like it much as a kid."
The 27-year-old said over the years
he had fallen in love with the bold and
soulful character of country music and
has injected a lot of those qualities into
The Wild Comfort's repertoire.
He said the band was meticulous
and ensured all songs on the new
10-track release made an impact.
"There are a lot of heartbreakers,
drinking songs, anti-gambling songs,
hometown songs -- all the typical
country things," Deeble said.
"But each member of the band
brings their own influences, like punk
and folk, which changes the sound
from being straight country."

Wednesday at the Smiths
