“Cruise Control” is the opening track of “Reward For Effort”, the debut album by House Deposit, out October 25th.
House Deposit openly grapple with their affairs. Melbourne-via-Sunbury-via-Coffs Harbour – the group have a soft spot for honesty.
Deeply inspired by The Chills, The Feelies and Melbourne dolewave, Meaghan invited Sam over one day to write a couple songs. They decided they couldn’t be a band without long-time friend Dylan. Two drummers later, House Deposit was born under a roof that three of the members had lived beneath at various stages of their lives.
On “Reward For Effort”, their debut tape, the band chronicle a turbulent year:
The end of multiple relationships. Extensive time spent in furniture stores. Moving house (again). Anxiety. Severe depression. Self-medication. Unemployment. The enjoyment of your own company. The uncertainty of the future.
And a fabricated tale that by unbelievable coincidence (slightly) came true.
Energy expended. Experience gained. Reward For Effort.
