4 stars Australian band A LONELY CROWD was formed sometime around 2008, and from their base in Melbourne they were an active live and recording unit for almost a decade. During their span they released three albums before going on hiatus in the fall of 2016. The mini album "Devil in the Detail" was released in the summer of 2016, and was released through the label Bird's Robe Records.

If it turns out that "Devil in the Detail" is the literal swansong of A Lonely Crowd, they go out in a good way. While the shorter interludes mainly are a bit so-so to my ears, the longer compositions here showcase a skilled band that have found their own particular niche to explore by pairing off style and genre elements that to my mind at least will have been rather challenging to combine. One to seek out for those that tends to enjoy progressive rock that is a bit out of left field.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
