Formed in Sydney in the mid 1980s, The Cannanes are one of the most celebrated underground bands of the Antipodes, with a book, a documentary and even a pair of limited edition Converse sneakers devoted to them. Over their 30 year career they have amassed 11 albums and innumerable singles on labels all around the world, and have toured the US, UK, Mexico, Japan and Europe repeatedly.

A Love Affair With Nature holds a special place in The Cannanes' canon. After a series of early lineup shuffles, the band condensed into their classic core trio - drummer David Nichols, guitarist Stephen O’Neil and heartbreaking vocalist Fran Gibson. Each contributes songs that veer between insightful and absurd, conveying a 20-something inner-city existence that feels simultaneously fleeting and universal.
