One of the outstanding New Zealand albums of the 1980s, The Bats 1987 debut album possesses a quietly powerful sound that immediately tugs the listener in. From the lo-fi pop hook of North by North through the gentle drone of Tragedy, their quirky energy glows with shimmering harmonies, whispered vocals, reeling basslines and a sweet sense of despair. As catchy as it is thought-provoking, Daddy s Highway is full of the haunting beauty and bittersweet melodies for which the four-piece have become so loved.
