When somebody mentions this 'Australia Sound' thing I don't think of the instrumental hip hop or chillwave that they're generally referring to, I think of people like Paul Kelly, Will Wagner and The Smith Street Band... and Peter Bibby.
It's not just because they're singin' songs with our accent, it's the stories and on-stage banter that mostly defines that Aussie identity in music for me.
Having been brought up in Perth's eastern suburbs, worked as a plasterer and busked for a little bit, he's seen enough of the real suburban Australia to project us a little more genuinely to the wold than theatrics like Croc Dundee - and coming from the same circles of talent as world beating Perth bands like Tame Impala and Pond, I can't help but feel the number on Peter's ticket out of here is about to be called.
