Album #200: e4444e – Coldstream Road

  • Released: 2020
  • Origin: Newcastle, Australia
  • Label: Spunk!
  • Best Track: Wolves

This oddly named project was mentioned on a list I read of the best Australian albums of the year. I thought I’d listen to it, if only because of the odd name.

Coldstream Road is the debut album of 22-year-old Romy Church, aka e4444e.

It’s an incredibly grown-up record from the young lad, with songs like ‘Wolves’ making great use of volume and intensity. The slightly disorientating ‘Rum Mountain’ is another highlight, and penultimate track ‘Lake Dawn’ is a wonderful 11 minutes to lose yourself in.

Music like this is not instantly lovable to me, but I can tell this album is a grower that will reward repeated listening.
