SWAZI GOLD ALBUM LAUNCH
Swazi Gold + Bananagun + Girlatones + The Bush
Entry Requirements: 18+
Formed by the chief songwriters from Melbourne bands Crepes, Dreamin' Wild and Sagamore, this new band brings old friends together. Drawing from their collective love of African music, American funk, and quirky, melody-driven pop music, Swazi Gold's debut album explores the space between conventional genres and styles of production. Lyrically, the songs address themes like moving to Melbourne, realising personal limitations and seeing a thriving country town fade to nothingness. There’s a brooding one in there for anyone who’s ever been ripped off, too. "Jehovah’s Whispers" is an album that proves the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. And in amidst the love and equality, there’s still a heap of bite and attitude.
