Pond’s Nicholas Allbrook on Australia’s national anthem: “It’s ignorant and isolationist”‘, Guardian Australia, 26 May 2016

Views of a 28-year-old rock singer with a range of comments beneath. Nicholas Allbrook, in his latest release ‘replaces the nation-fortifying intentions of Advance Australia Fair with a laconic portrayal of the country’s disinclination for the kind of enthusiastic patriotism commonly seen in other parts of the world’. Has some interesting remarks about people who are uneasy about the prevailing national identity but prefer to stay quiet.
