Growing up and building an ‘adult life’ can be bizarre, stressful, and challenging, though through these times of pressure there always remains a hope for a simpler life.
Buddy Dingo is just a “bloke having a go,” and in his new track Mortgage And A Mower, he paints a heartwarming portrait of Australian suburban life.
On his endearing and heartwarming new track Mortgage And A Mower, Narrandera’s Buddy Dingo is living the Australian dream.
Originally from Sydney/Blue Mountains, Buddy Dingo now resides in the small, picturesque country town of Narrandera, and has mastered his signature style of wry storytelling.
Mortgage And A Mower thrives in its simplicity, featuring just a lone electric guitar and Dingo’s endearing vocals. This highlights Dingo’s simple aspirations:
“I’m dreaming about the things I want / and the trees that I plant in my backyard,” he sings.
The song feels like listening to an old neighbour with a beat-up guitar singing wisdom from his front porch. It’s charming as all hell.
Reminiscent of the minimalistic Australiana of Peter Bibby, Buddy Dingo’s witty lyrics and dry delivery hold a sweetness and are completely enthralling.
The track’s accompanying video see’s Dingo house-hunting, watering plants and mowing the lawn… all with an infectious look of contentment.
