The second single from Aussie outfit Workhorse dips away from the indie aura of “Chain.” Amping up the surf twang, the song admittedly pulls from The Shadows and Link Wray but lands as a contemporary to newer surf acolytes like The Surfing Magazines, La Luz, and more specifically LL singer Shana Cleveland. Like Shana’s work there’s a darkness that rides underneath “No Photographs,” amplified by the sinister echoes that emanate off of the song. Songwriter Harriet Fraser-Barbour leans full-force into the surf aesthetic here with a bit of a tongue-in-cheek video that pairs her against a green screen surf backdrop. The song swings, writhes, and rolls away from the blinding lights. Its a song of discomfort that’s oddly comforting. The new album, also titled No Photographs, is out August 12th from Dinosaur City.
