CharlieHorse1Charlie Horse, the Sydney group described by Rolling Stone as Patti Smith fronting Crazy Horse, bring their kick-ass show to Queensland in December, having already toured New Zealand and NSW.

Sydney’s triple J radio described the sound as “big, bluesy guitars with twisted narrative delivered through a rusty howl from Crystal up front”

Brisbane’s 4ZZZ radio said “stone cold and menacing, that’s what comes to mind listening to this single from Sydney-siders Charlie Horse…Alt country rock with the same tones and themes as Nick Cave or Patti Smith are renowned for”

With their single ‘Deep Water’ receiving extensive play on radio across the country, Charlie Horse’s fourth trip to Queensland will showcase their second album ‘Strange Passengers’, as well as crowd favourites from their critically acclaimed first album ‘I Hope I Am Not A Monster’.

The critics said:

“an impressive debut album of heroic widescreen rock ‘n roll” 8/10 DRUM MEDIA

“a thoroughly enjoyable release of brilliantly twisted emotions” 4/5 SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

“Dark brooding works: ragged glory” 4/5 STACK MAGAZINE

“Charlie Horse’s punk-infused take on Americana sounds both punchy and ragged, like Patti Smith fronting Crazy Horse….this is seriously promising stuff.” 3.5/5 ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE

“On the evidence of this album, there is every prospect that Rose and McDonald could blossom into one of the great female vocalists/ male guitar slinger combinations we’ve uncovered in Australia.” RHYTHMS MAGAZINE
