Review Text Initially formed as an outlet for well-known Perth songsmith Sean Pollard (New Rules for Boats) to play his solo tunes, Split Seconds have solidified into one of the Perth's most talked about bands, who although being but a year old, have already chalked up supports with Cloud Control, Little Red, Dan Kelly, the John Steel Singers, Sally Seltmann & Tim Minchin to name a few. The bands early success has been no-doubt aided by the experienced cast of all-singing and all-instrument swapping Perth musicians that bring Pollard's songs to life with their spacious and understated instrumentation. Pollard first began penning songs under the Split Seconds moniker whilst working a less-than salubrious job in London mental hospital, the songwriter set about exploring a nostalgia for home - the bittersweet, romantic notions known so well to Australians living abroad. As hinted at by first single and Triple J favourite Bed Down, Pollard has the ability to write timeless and truly affecting Australian pop songs of the highest order. Ed Down, as with all of the tracks on Split Second's debut EP, was tracked at Cazfair Studios in Perth with producers Steve Bond (The Panics, Snowman, the Bank Holidays) and Benjamin Golby helming the desk. The record was then mixed in London with respected Australian producer Aaron Cupples, best known for his work the Drones and Dan Kelly.
