This Way North (EP Launch)
Doors 8:00pm / $12+bf Thru Oztix (HERE)
Melbourne duo This Way North released EP Vol. 2 on March 2. A must-have soundtrack for weekend road-trips and weeknight lounge-room dance parties. They now bring their national tour to their hometown, Melbourne.
Recorded over two stints in Toronto, Canada during 2016 and 2017 with producer Derek Downham (Eagles of Death Metal, Broken Social Scene, Holy F*ck), EP Vol. 2 is a six-song collection that showcases the band’s evolution from the rootsy rock of 2016’s EP Vol. 1, to a new realm of luscious, groove-laden alt-pop and synth-rock.
Absorbed in the expansive energy of drummer/vocalist Cat Leahy and guitarist/vocalist Leisha Jungalwalla’s performances, it’s easy to forget that This Way North is a two-piece band. It’s a trick-of-the-ear that follows the pair effortlessly from the studio to the stage.
This Way North will have their Melbourne launch alongside some of the scene's most exciting and entertaining acts with Reika and Hollie Joyce joining the line-up. The night will be filled with raucous energy and the joys of playing live music with the sounds of rock and roll truly alive.
