about

The General Assembly VIC, Australia

The General Assembly's music paints an engrossing and unsettling picture. Matt Wicking's songs use poetry and magic-realism, to chart the points where human and non-human nature connect, where the lines blur and dissolve.

While the song-writing draws from the deep well of blues and folk storytelling, sonically it soars. Reverb-drenched guitars, synth and mellotron create swelling soundscapes.

Track Name: Cape Grim
I found a tower on a hill above a lonely town
Beneath the tower was a door into a low-lit room
Inside the room there was a beacon sending signals to the night

Beside the beacon was a book with my initials on the cover
Inside the cover were the contents of my life from birth to death
And as I opened it and read, a sea of voices filled the room
Track Name: The Wild Child
"When muddy water fills your lungs
You'll know that we were right"
Said the wild, wild child to the pair of them
"We're leaving you behind"

"With your pockets full of gold and polished up gems
You're gonna sink like stones
Your property, your pride, they're lies
They're no use to us now
You've forgotten all your songs
And your stories have gone and turned in on themselves
A mirror on a mirror on a mirror
On a selfish point of view"

"When muddy water fills your lungs
You'll know that we were right"
Said the wild, wild child to the pair of them
"We're leaving you behind"

Muddy water, muddy water
Pouring through my hands
Muddy water, muddy water
When I have given all I can
