Dextor’s Conscience- A Story to Share
We all grow up listening to stories. Some scare, challenge and teach, while others inspire us to hope. Dextor’s Conscience’s new album, Soundtrack the Distance (Starving Kids Records), is more than a collection of songs, but instead is a crafted narrative of emotion and faith set to melodic, rock and acoustic sounds. In the vain of Death Cab for Cutie and Dashboard Confessional, Brisbane four-piece Dextor’s Conscience wear their hearts on their sleeves for the world to see. It is in this vulnerability that we can connect and empathise; we cannot help but read on.
Like all timeless poets, singer/songwriter Matt Palmer deals with the human condition; our ability to love, pine and feel. “Your skin embraces my skin, your lips engaging my kiss, the alluring invitation you sent, to which my better judgment just won’t consent...” We are engaged because we identify.
According to Matt, “I really wanted to make this album lyrically tell a story, so I took this into account when selecting the tracks and the order of songs. The whole idea behind “soundtrack the distance” is the songs are the point in my life or experiences that got me from the person I was then to who I am now, sort of the soundtrack for the journey of my life.”
Although their tale has just begun, the group is set to embark on a tour of the east-coast of Australia with Ashmore and is set to win souls with their transparency and energy. Their live shows are drenched in sentiment, inviting audiences to join the journey, this story we call life.
Described as alternative-ambient rock "with the vocal delivery tones of Death Cab For Cutie, the emotion of Dashboard Confessional and the accessibility of a mid-90s Goo Goo Dolls, Dextors Conscience are truly a world-class band that, would seem, is hiding right here in our backyard.
Wearing their heart extremely visibly on their sleeve, this four-piece deliver a stylish rock sound saturated in heart-wrenching emotion and songwriting goodness from the pen of Matt Palmer. Soundtracked by crunchy guitars, it seems real agony has gone into these songs as vivid imagery and real story-telling spill from every revealing lyric, giving the impression that this is only the beginning of something great.
Hopefully Palmer and the boys will realise just what they have here and take Soundtrack The Distance onto a worldwide platform." - Ben Preece - Time Off Magazine
