The Melbourne quartet's third album Rush To Relax has entered this week's ARIA's album chart at number 20 "with a bullet", one place behind Vampire Weekend's Contra and ahead of records by Lily Allen, P!nk and the late Johnny Cash. It was one of only two local new releases to enter the charts this week, with Before Too Long: Triple J's Tribute To Paul Kelly in at number 11.
Over at ARIA's Australian album charts, Rush to Relax is currently sitting at number four, behind the triple j compilation, AC/DC's platinum-selling Black Ice and The Temper Trap's Conditions, which recently went gold (35,000 units). While ARIA doesn't disclose how many units are sold for individual chart placings, on an average week, roughly 2500 copies are needed to push an album into the Top 10.
