Davey Lane has been honing his craft for a long while now ? with legendary Australian rock group You Am I, with whom he has been standing stage right on lead guitar since 1999, and with an inordinate number of greats, including Todd Rundgren, Crowded House, The Saints, Jimmy Barnes, Robyn Hitchcock, The Masters Apprentices and more. Years of learning from many local and international song writing greats have seen Davey himself grow in turn as a songwriter, with a smart pop sensibility, a keen ear for a big chorus and a surreal turn of phrase. The culmination of his apprenticeship sees Davey emerge, after months of solitary nocturnal pottering in his Headley Garage studio, with his second full length LP. Entitled 'I'm Gonna Burn Out Bright', it's melancholy lyrical themes of mortality and one's place in the universe are framed in joyous, brash space-pop melodies, almost as though they are a collection of long-lost radio hits of eras current and bygone. Featuring the symphonic pop of first single 'Taurus All Apart', the grandiose pastoral folk of 'This Is Hell' (as featured in ABC TV's upcoming medical drama Pulse), and the XTC-meets-Kate Bush synth-pop of 'My Apple Lady Cried', 'I'm Gonna Burn Out Bright' - whilst mainly a solo album in the very sense of the word - also features guests from members of King Gizzard The Lizard Wizard, Saskwatch, Dorsal Fins and GL and Laura Jean. The record is Davey's bold love letter to great pop music through the ages, making something concurrently universal and completely his own.
