Sunday 21st May (matinee)
Dougal & The Sunken Sea
Doors 1:00pm / $10 Door
What better way to spend a lazy Sunday arvo than with some gorgeous soulful music created by some gorgeous soulful people!
Experience Georgia Smith’s radiant vocals intertwine with her simmering guitar stylings as an entree before some “jazzy as fek to progressive/ post metal” from major dudes Paper Tapir who make tunes influenced by concepts such as “rock, good fun, kettles, toyota prius's and really fast mums”.
After Paper Tapir, master drummer Ben Fleming will stay glued to the kit and prepare himself for an an hour of sonorous, uplifting gloom in odd time signatures; The Sunken Sea will take the stage and draw you in with some intimate but expansive trio arrangements of Dougal’s dense and dark tunes, before doing some magic instrument swapping and busting out a three piece brass mosh machine so you, the audience, can nod your head vaguely to the eclectic and cinematic art rock, and soak in the “coffee shop sad boy lyrics” rumbled at you in a baritone voice by Dougal James; a towering emotional man-boy most likely dressed in black and clutching mournfully at a bass guitar amidst the storm of syrupy brass and a lilting wash of dense harmony.
