Midnight Oil, are certainly a band that has triumphed with its art regardless of current trends or the political or economical state of the world.

‘Capricornia’, the band’s 14th full-length release in February 2010, is innovative yet evocative summing up the spirit of this vast and strikingly beautiful country we live in.

The new album captures the real character of the band echoing their trademark sound, each individual giving it their all – full tilt. You can seriously stamp this album undeniably Midnight Oil. Jim Moginie’s twelve string rickenbacker comes at you from the speaker to the right, Martin Rotsey’s riffs belt out of the left, Rob Hirst hounds you with his bouncing beats, whilst Bones bottom ends you with his bass and it’s all sealed tight with the positive passion of Garrett’s voice supported by Bones and Rob’s strong and sweet backing vocals. ‘Capricornia’ is definitely a product of its time but delivers the essence of the melody, the big choruses and the rhythm reminiscent of their best work.

‘Capricornia’ truly illustrates Australia …tune in and you’ll travel along the road that was the first inspiration for it, the road to Papunya in the harsh central desert of Australia where the band re-discovered a new lease of life whilst camping out under the stars for a few days and nights. This was the road that inspired their international hit ‘Beds Are Burning’ a red dusty road with tracks well worn and whose story is often told yet somehow still unchanged. A road so remarkable it continues to inspire.

The Oils return with another 12 songs written by Jim, Rob and Peter. ‘Capricornia’ will fill your head with optimism and keep your foot thumping. Midnight Oil will be charging around the globe this year making their mark with audiences both here in Australia and internationally.
