Album Review: Stu Larsen - Resolute

"It's slow, considered and lyrical."

More Stu Larsen More Stu Larsen

Creativity might live at home, but for Stu Larsen, inspiration has come from abroad.

Resolute, Larsen's second album, needs only the shallowest of excavations to see how cities, towns and experiences from around the world have shaped this record. It's slow, considered and lyrical; despite its global references it shares the thoughtful delivery of fellow Queenslanders Busby Marou. Larsen's voice is more tender though, closer to Glenn Richards or even Matt Corby in the emotion that lingers at the back of his lyrics. Best paired with a red wine and a well-thumbed Lonely Planet, Resolute is utterly engrossing.
