The Depths is the third album by Brisbane based Australian band, The Blackwater Fever. Recorded, mixed and produced by the band from their home studio, Parallel Sound, the album represents an evolution in songwriting and production.
"The Depths is our best release yet and the first we have made entirely under our own steam. It was a huge learning curve with much trial and error but in the end I think the result has vividly realised our ideas and vision.
This is how we’ll do it from now on." - Shane Hicks (Vocals/Guitar)The 14 tracks journey through blues, soul, trip-hop, story telling, instrumental and rock n' rock, all forged together with their unique, dark, atmospheric sound.
