Local Brisbane band, The Double Happiness, have released their new single, which has a special focus on Nundah.
The Double Happiness is a band made of two couples, Kristin and Pete and Meg and Simon, with similar tastes in music and a love for the history of Brisbane.
Their latest single, No Place Like Nundah, came about from a misheard conversation. A friend was referencing Dorothy’s iconic line from the Wizard of Oz, and Kristin thought she’d said “There’s no place like Nundah.”
This brought up a discussion about the Brisbane of the past, and the landmarks that have changed, including the fountain from King George Square, the Brisbane trams and Cloudland, which was knocked down in the still of night in 1982.
This discussion evolved into the new single, No Place Like Nundah.
Kristin and the band love how Nundah has grown over the years.
“Nundah has become a gorgeous inner-suburban village in recent years. It’s growing up in a similar fashion to Brisbane as a whole, and has found its identity,” says Kristin.
No Place Like Nundah is now available for streaming and purchasing at http://smarturl.it/nundah.
The Double Happiness will be performing No Place Like Nundah next at The Bearded Lady at West End on May 4.
