Fan Palm (EP Launch)
The Dare Ohhs
Doors 7:00pm / Free Entry to the Bandroom
From coastal Bellarine outside Geelong, Edmund Mantelli brings his newly-formed band to the Workers Club to launch his debut EP.
Edmund weaves stories and sounds into surf-chilled tracks that are complex yet catchy, deep yet loose. His inspirations are wide and eclectic, from Herbie Hancock to Homeshake, The Drones to Eddy Current and Hiatus Kayote to King Krule.
With help from his Foot-in-the-Door prize from the 2015 Queenscliff Music Festival, the five-track EP was recorded and mixed at Don’t Poke the Bear in Geelong and mastered by Mikey Young. The EP features the slow-burning lament What Now? and the pop-driven Like We Used To, but listen out for jazz-infused chords and odd beats...
This is just the beginning for this young, talented and hard-working musician. Joined by his brother Etienne Mantelli (Tiny Giants, The Dare Ohhs, Environments) on drums, Jasper Jolly (Tiny Giants, The Dare Ohhs, Bones and Jones, Environments) on guitar, and Heath Robertson on bass and harmonies, Fan Palm brings together some of the finest young artists from the spawning seas of Ocean Grove. Expect a solid and lively set!
With support from Rat Hammock, The Dare Ohhs and Grand Pine, Fan Palm’s debut Melbourne gig is one you’ll want to say you were there for.
