'Our Horse is Dead' is the debut album from Heartbreak Club, Australia's beacon of hope for Geek-Rock.
The album takes a slightly darker and grittier turn whilst remaining unapologetically melodic; adopting a honest, confessional, grungier (but still tongue-in-cheek) tone.
Download if you're a fan of Weezer, They Might Be Giants, The Get Up Kids or just a fan of catchy but not dumb-ass.
