THE SETTLEMENT are a band of brothers from regional Victoria that rose from the ashes of the much loved BUDDHA IN A CHOCOLATE BOX.
They have released music each year since forming and have been touring Australia relentlessly earning themselves the reputation of a gang of reprobates that can really fucking play. On and off the stage.
2017 has been huge for THE SETTLEMENT with the release of their debut album Stand In The Middle which realizes their potential as songwriters and recording artists.
"Partnering the song’s sombre focus with the strained stretch of violins and vocalist Adrian Calvano’s elongated, bluntly-delivered lines" - RollingStone Aus
“a rollicking slice of tunage” - The Brag on "She's Alright"
"Here, The Settlement successfully dump tired country music tropes to welcome everyone in for a drink." - The Music on Stand In The Middle
"The band’s roots in folk is clear, but they’ve projected a great amount of evocative punch with this single that indicates The Settlement’s move into some great alt-country territory." - The Au Review on "She Feels Like Home"
2017 also represents their first foray into International touring as they been accepted to play in LA at the YouBloom and NYC at the Mondo Festivals. They will spend a month in the US during September and October making believers out of a whole new territory of potential fans.
THE SETTLEMENT believe so hard from the stage that it's impossible not to feel the same from the audience.
