Luke Brennan and his band hit the Gasometer to launch ‘One True Love’, the first single from the forthcoming album Lovers Leap.
This new studio work comes off the back of a fruitful 2016 recording and performing as a member of Big Smoke and Truly Holy, as well as the bands behind Fraser A Gorman and Leah Senior.
Lovers Leap is sometimes dense and sometimes weightless. Expansive daydream ballads are balanced with subtle long-form grooves. Lyrics-wise, philosophy gives way to humour; folk clichés show up in strange contexts; ultimately, romance reigns. It’s a search for the extremely universal within the extremely personal.
Don’t miss the incredible dead-pan power-pop of Girlatones; the intense and sparse magic of Cyanide Thornton; and the cool and nostalgic garage-folk of San Francisco’s own Tré Burt.
Tickets are $10, available from thegasometerhotel.com.au or at the door.
