Troubadour, rule-breaker, maverick, and sundry other adjectives pepper the work of Peter Bibby.
Across his opening two albums the Australian artist sketched out some utterly unique climes, matching unkempt grunge-leaning riffs to moments of astute introspection.
New album 'Marge' lands on September 18th, and it finds the songwriter - together with his group Dog Act - surging into territories fresh.
New track 'Whyalla' airs through Clash, a track with a twin meaning - it's both a curse and a love letter to life in rural Australia.
Peter Bibby says...
“I wrote this song a few years back after my mate Racoo asked me to write a song for a road trip compilation she was putting together. I don’t think it saw the light of day. I had a lot of help from Wikipedia...”
Directed and produced by Brendan Hutchens, the video moves to these same rural climes, focussing on a hitchhiker's journey.
Peter Bibby adds: “We shot this thing out in Glen Eagle's Rest, due to COVID-19 we couldn't shoot it in Whyalla. It came together nicely with the help of great friends, a great crew and a weird toilet cleaner who hung around telling us strange and creepy facts about the location. He said he was disappointed that we weren't shooting a porno.”
Tune in now.
