In a short life, David McComb gave up secrets in the shape of his songs, as the founder/singer-songwriter/driving force of the great Australian band, The Triffids.
 

About the film:

Using his familiar Western Australian landscape as the canvas for his towering psychodramas and heart-broken epics, the tragedy and triumph of McComb’s driven, passionate life is brought to the screen here in a labour of love made over a 13-year period by first-time writer/director Jonathan Alley. 

McComb believed in the power of the song, and they forever ran at his heels. In The Triffids’ 1986 masterpiece Born Sandy Devotional, he found a new Australian voice: a poetically inspired vision of desolate, broken-hearts cast against the bright expanse of beaches,deserts and highways.

But McComb’s health faltered and after a heart transplant in 1996, he died in 1999, days short of his 37th birthday - leaving a slew of unanswered questions and unrecorded songs.

Love in Bright Landscapes reveals the man behind the songs – via beautifully restored 35mm slides, delightfully evocative home movies and heart-rending interviewees with colleagues, family, and friends.

McComb’s poetry and newly discovered letters are read by Australian-born Man Booker Prize-winning novelist DBC Pierre; interwoven with excerpts from no less than 75 of David's magnificent songs. 

"Tender and very touching it captures the charm, wit and complexity of a major artist."
