More Hilltop Hoods More Hilltop Hoods

It's set to be another big week of Aus music on triple j, with local acts Hilltop Hoods and Dear Seattle picking up the big honours of the week on the station. 

Adelaideans Hilltop Hoods have scored themselves the Feature Album of the week for their latest, The Great Expanse, while you'll be hearing Sydney-based Dear Seattle as part of the Album Packet feature for their debut album, Don't Let Go

The Great Expanse is the first album from Hilltop Hoods in five years and sees significant theme shift for the group. 

"Pressure and I are very much in dad mode," Hilltop Hoods' Suffa told The Music recently. "Over the last three years I had two daughters and he had one and that obviously informed a lot of what we wrote about and a lot of how we spend our time. 

"Over that period as well, I was building a new studio, 'cause I got the boot from my old one so there could be a nursery. So, for me personally, I was sort of building this album with the studio… Everyone had so much change in the last three years that it's hard to just put your finger on one thing and say this is how we felt."
