In 2001 Melbourne indie-band Art of Fighting released their debut album ‘Wires’ to wide spread accolade. Chiming guitars, brushed drums, gorgeous songs and hushed vocals, all “recorded with the flawless cool of a glass sculpture”, to quote Pitchfork Media. The album begins with the plaintive quiet of ‘Skeletons’: ‘There’s so little left of you/That how can I refuse/To be your skeleton/Is all that I can do.’ From there, the band charts a captivating journey from start to finish. Singles ‘Give Me Tonight’, ‘Reasons Are All I Have Left’ and ‘Skeletons’ became quick fan and media favourites alike, as did the soaring live songs “Just Say I’m Right’ and “Something New’. It picked up a surprise ARIA award for Best Alternative Release In 2001, and 20 years later Rolling Stone Australia listed ‘Wires’ as the 159th best Australian album of all time.
