Playing out like a series of intricate vignettes, Echoes in the Aviary ventures deep into the juncture where indie and electronic meet the warmer soulful tones of Tyrrell’s timbre. The Age’s Craig Mathieson described it as “an elegantly arresting song cycle made with art-rock brush strokes and underpinned by atmospheric electronic rhythm.” Jane is at home on stage. Her evocative vocal delivery and utterly compelling presence has seen her perform with the likes of Firekites, Claire Bowditch, Missy Higgins, Paul Kelly, The Herd and more. She’ll be accompanied by a full live band. These shows are not to be missed.

Broods announce “The Evergreen Tour” – Proudly Presented by Spotify

broods

 

One of the most celebrated young bands to emerge out of New Zealand’s thriving contemporary musical landscape, brother and sister duo BROODS are coming to Australia this November. Off the back of countless sold out national and international tour dates and a stellar set at this year’s Splendour in the Grass, the über-talented siblings Caleb and Georgia Nott will bring their ARIA top 5 debut album ‘Evergreen’ to Australia for a set of national headline shows.

Touring relentlessly, the pair have been enjoying enviable international success. After playing just four shows together in Australia to support their EP, they headed to the UK for a headline tour. They were then invited to join HAIM on their UK tour before setting off on their own North American tour including sold out headline dates and shows with CHVRCHES.

Returning to Australia last May to tour with Ellie Goulding, Broods also played sold-out headline side-shows before dominating their set at Splendour in the Grass in July, where they once again sold out all national headline side-shows. Later this month, Broods head back overseas as special guests on Sam Smith’s US Tour.

The first artist signed to Big Scary’s Pieater imprint, Airling (aka. Hannah Shepherd), will unveil her single “Wasted Pilots”this week – the latest to be taken from forthcoming EP, ‘Love Gracefully’, out 19th September via Inertia. .

All tracks are taken from her debut EP ‘Love Gracefully’, produced by Tom Scary – his first production work since Big Scary’s 2013 Australian Music Prize winning album, Not Art – and characterised by Shepherd’s ethereal vocals and lush electronics. The pair began working together after Hannah contributed vocals to Tom Scary’s #1 Dads album and shared some of her own songs, which piqued the producer’s interest.

Love Gracefully is the first EP, an incredibly assured output from a brilliant talent. An October national headline tour will follow its release.

Missy Higgins announces national tour – Proudly presented by Spotify

Untitled-1

Beloved Aussie singer/songwriter Missy Higgins has just announced a one-off Australian tour called OZ. These September/October dates will be Missy’s only shows for at least the next 12 months.

The announcement of this special concert series follows hot on the heels of two other major Missy announcements. Firstly she revealed that she is due to give birth to her first child in early January (hence her strictly limited touring plans). Secondly she just unveiled a brand new album of eclectic Australian cover versions and a companion book of essays. Both the album and the book are called OZ.

The concerts will see Missy combining some OZ songs with her own classics such as “The Special Two”, “Scar”, Steer”, “Where I Stood”, “Unashamed Desire” and Everyone’s Waiting”.

Over the last decade Missy Higgins has become one of our most beloved singer/songwriters. Her three previous albums, The Sound of White, On a Clear Night and The Ol’ Razzle Dazzle, have sold more than a million copies. They’ve each gone to #1 on the Australian charts and each has also been recognised with ARIA Awards.

Miami Horror announce National tour – Proudly presented by Spotify

unnamed-6

 

Miami Horror are back in a big way with new single ‘Wild Motion (Set It Free)’ and a national tour this September. Recently settling in Los Angeles, the five-piece found inspiration in the glowing year-round Californian sun, set up a home studio, and eagerly started experimenting to release singles Real Slow and Colours in the Sky over the Summer of 2013/2014.

‘Wild Motion (Set It Free)’ oozes the recognisably catchy and upbeat vibes which MiamiHorror have taken ownership of since 2009’s debut EP Bravado & hit single ‘Sometimes’. Yet with ‘Wild Motion (Set It Free)’, the band have reached a new pinnacle of their songwriting. The track showcases the ever-growing production talent of the band and producer Benjamin Plant, the huge soothing vocal harmonies of singer Josh Moriarty and a monumental vintage-sounding riff that sets the scene for the band’s new direction.

The new single has been unleashed in conjunction with the announcement of a national tour which will take the band to Brisbane, Canberra, Sydney, Coffs Harbour,Adelaide, Melbourne, Karratha and Fremantle this September. Tour dates and ticketing details  can be found here.

American Authors announce Australia and New Zealand tour – Proudly presented by Spotify

unnamed-5

Brooklyn-based alt rock band American Authors will be returning to Australia and visiting New Zealand for the first time thisyear to play shows in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and Auckland.

Band members Zac Barnett, James Adam Shelley, Dave Rublin and Matt Sanchez left the Berklee College of Music in Boston where they met to take their alt-rock, four-part harmonies and infectious pop sensibilities to the Big Apple as American Authors.

Their honest songwriting evidently comes from the diversity that the four members bring to the table. As lead singer Zac Barnett explains the idea behind their name and work ethic: “We’re the authors of our lives, creating music from what we’ve lived, from what we hope for, from what we feel. Every day is different and like everyone, our emotions change according to our personal highs and lows and by the challenges or triumphs that affect all of us…we’re not afraid to be goofy one day and serious the next. We just want to be true to ourselves and share our stories for as long as people are willing to listen” – Zac Barnett (vocals)

The last year has seen American Authors not only dominate the charts, television and movie screens, but also their live presence, having supported the likes of OneRepublic and The Script to being one of the most highly anticipated bands to play at SXSW in Austin, Texas earlier this year, leading to a number of sold out headline shows in the US and UK/Europe.

In the last few months, American Authors have not only proved to be proficient songwriters that have captivated audiences across the world, they have proven themselves as headliners in their own right through their energy and commitment to honing their craft as live performers. If the international response to American Authors is anything to go by, you will not want to miss these guys in action.

tour poster (3)

Andy Bull is excited to announce the ‘Sea of Approval’ national tour; in support of the release of his much anticipated second LP, out now via Island Records.

‘Sea of Approval’ is an open and personal body of work. Andy’s distinct voice and acoustic piano is married with synthesizers, samples, glitches and vocal layering. A masterful pop artist, he produces and plays every instrument on the record and has this to say about the upcoming tour:

“I’m happy to be doing the ‘Sea of Approval’ tour – we look forward to making the walls shake and sines and squares waves. I’ll have the full band interpreting my bedroom productions for the rock stage. Come and watch us try to wrangle this wily electronic stallion, and even when it bucks, it’ll be anguish worth coming out for.”

Tickets are on sale now via the links below, be part of Andy’s sea of approval as he takes full band on tour this September, which special guests from Sydney’s indie pop trio New Navy.

Angus and Julia Stone announce Australia and New Zealand tour – Proudly presented by Spotify

Angus & Julia Stone are set to bring their critically acclaimed live show to New Zealand this September. The forthcoming tour will see the band perform many of their most recognized and well-loved tracks, along with exciting new material from the soon to be released third album produced by Rick Rubin.

Angus & Julia have had very successful careers both as a duo and more recently, independently as solo artists.

It was the legendary US producer Rick Rubin (Jay Z, Beastie Boys, Johnny Cash etc) who being a fan and familiar with their musical history, suggested they get together once more as a band. Angus and Julia spent time writing and recording at Rubin’s Shangri La Studios in Malibu and the result is their brilliant, forthcoming album “Angus & Julia Stone”.

Joining them on tour will be the blogosphere’s most talked about act of 2013, Vancouver Sleep Clinic, aka 18 year old Brisbanite Tim Bettinson, who released his debut EP earlier this year to rave reviews.
