Alt-Country / Americana / Australia / Country / New Music / Videos


The Queensland band Hillsborough, based around Phil Usher and Beata Maglai, released their debut album Comin’ Back For You this week and to mark the occasion they’ve also released the video clip for their latest single ‘Magnetic Lives‘ – an alt-country song built around a dusty acoustic strum, an electric twang and sublime vocal harmonies from Phil and Beata. You can hear Son Volt, The Replacements, Wilco and more in the DNA of their sound on this particular track.

Check out the new album below. On first listen the whole thing lives up to the high standard set by the early singles from it. An essential 2022 Australian Americana release.
