“Wonderful” was launched in Melbourne on June the 14th, 2018 at The Old Bar.
The song is distributed online through AWAL.

"The Aussie trio are onto a winner with their latest single." Mystic Sons

"Their latest single is Wonderful – an intricately woven piece with jangly guitars that twinkle amongst the trio’s harmonies." Ohestee

"(The Good Minus) have succeeded in creating a perfect indie song." We Love That Sound

“A gorgeous piece with faultless production and a great sonic mix of musicians… a stunning piece of work.” Ultraviolet

"Lush harmonies and Johnny Greenwood/ Radiohead-esque lead guitar parts." Divide and Conquer Music

“Post-rock or math rock…. you'll gather within a few seconds that these are intricate arrangements that suggest a cerebral mind behind them… folky voices emerged and did nothing to knock the gracious momentum off its stride. A strong live presence going by this showing, a real band in the throes of creation.” Mp3Hugger

The Good Minus are:
Matt Welch- Vocals, Guitar
Stu Hazelman- Vocals, Drums
David Kean- Vocals, Bass, Mandolin

As if Grizzly Bear were covering the songs of Television, The Good Minus bring you their inimitable style of angular prog-pop. Matt Welch, David Kean and Stu Hazelman blend wildly different influences to create intricate arrangements, with three-part vocal harmonies and obscure, groove-laden time signatures.
