EDITORS’ NOTES

Sydney band Hellions’ fourth LP is ostensibly a concept album about life's peaks and troughs. “Odyssey” tackles the egocentricity of modern culture, while the title track delivers a moving message of hope, despite its touching on tragedies such as the 2016 Orlando nightclub shooting. Two elaborate, vaudeville-styled interludes—“(Theatre Of)” and “(Blueberry)”—lend an air of theatricality as the quartet embellish their punk roots with elements as diverse as funk (“Get Up!”), rock opera (“Odyssey”), nu-metal, and hip-hop (“Harsh Light”).
