Harvey Russell releases his latest single and first video clip from his Liquid Damage album, released late last year. The haunting, feedback-laden title track is a poignant take on drinking and damage, cutting to the heart of country music, both the tough and tender sides of the tracks. It’s a shining example of a singer and songwriter high on confidence and channeling his muse with clarity and a full heart.

“It’s a crowded field out there but Liquid Damage is a world-class album and Russell a superlative songwriter and singer. We can only hope he and this album cut through the static. They deserve to.” – Stuart Coupe (Rhythms magazine)
“An excellent album from one of Australia’s finest country singers… There’s a tradition of country music in the Antipodes and Russell has made a fine Australiana album.” – Americana UK
