On the Horizon: Backseat Widescreen, taxes.

Melbourne’s Flynn Wheeler may share a citizenship with The Jezabels and a surname with Ash lead singer Tim, and certainly his creative outpour under the guise of taxes takes more than a few cues from each. But such is the widescreen melodrama that dwells within Over The View – a highlight from Wheeler’s itself highly accomplished Back Of The Car Collection – that comparisons with Anthony Gonzalez’ M83 are doubtless to abound in times to come. Essentially, had his Gallic contemporary spent a little more time gazing down at his shoes in the buildup to Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming, he might well have contrived something this effortlessly majestic and, ultimately therefore, Gonzalez’ oeuvre would incontrovertibly have been all the better for it.
