After releasing their second album Perfect Body this year through Flying Nun Records, Mermaidens are heading across the ditch for a string of Australian tour dates this September. Beginning in Sydney on September 23rd and finishing up in Melbourne on October 1st, this tour will be the first opportunity for Australian audiences to catch the dynamic trio live. The Wellington based three piece kick off their Australian tour at an all-time high following the August release of Perfect Body, which has been receiving rave reviews from around the globe.
Mermaidens are Gussie Larkin (guitar, vocals), Lily West (bass, vocals) and Abe Hollingsworth (drums). The trio burst onto the scene with their widely acclaimed debut EP O in 2014 and went on to release their debut album Undergrowth in 2016. As a result, they were offered dozens of shows and international support slots, which led to them being picked up by Flying Nun Records.The Wellington trio offer a mesmerising dip into the realms of post-punk and psych, defined by intricate songwriting, boldly raw – yet increasingly refined – studio production, and a hypnotic live synergy that leaves audiences enchanted.
Don’t miss this band in the heat of their new record, Perfect Body, on tour around Australia this September -they’re set to make a similar impact on the global music scene as they have at home in New Zealand.
