Powderfinger – Dream Days at the Hotel Existence [Number One Album in Australia – 13th June 2007]


Singles released from Dream Days at the Hotel Existence

Lost and Running – wp.me/p3uHDF-hG

I Don’t Remember – wp.me/p3uHDF-hF

Nobody Sees – wp.me/p3uHDF-hE

Who Really Cares (Featuring the Sound of Insanity) – wp.me/p3uHDF-hD

Stepping away from the frenetic rock songs of Vulture Street and back to the atmospheric and emotional terrain of Odyssey Number Five and Internationalist, this album is a welcome return to form for Powderfinger. Rippling with emotions and covering a gamut of moods, it has some incredible moments. Inspired by the autistic protagonist in Mark Haddon’s novel, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time, album opener Head Up in the Clouds manages to capture the chaos, confusion and frustration of mental illness, while Nobody Sees is Powderfinger at their devastating best.
