With Food Court’s long-awaited debut long-player Good Luck, this band of brothers reverted to the way things used to be done; laying down 11 killer cuts in less than a week – all recorded live and under the masterful ear of producer John Castle. It seemed fitting that Good Luck would be the final album ever recorded in the legendary Shed Studios – where Castle worked his magic on records from the likes of You Am I, Vance Joy, The Bamboos and more recently Jack River. Glorious 2 and a half minute slices of rock and roll such as ‘Not My Way’ and ‘Slightest Brightest’ sit comfortably amongst some of Castle’s best work – all inner-city attitude and sharp guitars.

While the album was recorded in a week, Food Court worked on the songs over the past year and the result is a classic debut – a scrapbook of stories of lost loves, lost sleep, mistakes, anxious minds and a light drizzling of optimism on top. The album is powered through melody-driven garage punk and performance chops which were finely tuned earlier this year on their inaugural SxSW appearance and touring through the US and Canada.

In the words of frontman Cristian Campano, ”Good Luck is all about making the right choice even after you’ve made a few wrong choices.” And while fans of the band’s first two DIY EP’s will still find their trademark cheeky irreverence very much intact, Campano elaborates, ”Overall we wanted to write songs that were louder, rawer, and straighter to the point than we had previously before.”

The band will be releasing a new single ‘I’ve Been Wrong’ and announcing a national tour to celebrate the release – but all in good time. For now, with the release of Good Luck we can finally add a new name to the list of Australia’s finest exponents of garage rock.
