"Diminishing Returns is a gloomy further step away from retroactivity and another step closer to meandering weirdness. Chrome dome vocals bouncing and clipping like rolling razors on a low tension trampoline. It's a medicated waltz that erupts into a carpetbombed guitar solo that explodes like clusters of dropped doom. A simian outro that reeks of primordial grime.The chorus however is probably the best chorus I have written. So good we only play it once…This song gets numerous votes around camp Harmony as our favourite new song; it's weird, it's non linear but it's still a losing cycle, it's eerily soft then primitively loud and will do nothing to help us fit in with any kind of crowd. We never learn and I just keep losing. - Tom Lyngcoln

Coasting through verse, chorus and coda like a tropical cyclone, HARMONY's sound is a mongrel concoction of gallows blues and balladry, offset by a glorious three part gospel vocal ensemble that lifts the songs out of the dark and into thrilling, yet haunting territory. HARMONY features past/ present members of The Nation Blue, McLusky and Ukeladies.
