OFFBEAT promises to be just that. A little offbeat, a little off the beaten track, and a bit of the unexpected! The first OFFBEAT was held at The Imperial Hotel in 2019, with the event now re-imagined and expanded beyond the hotel – with this year’s festival hub in the lush open-air space adjacent to the Eumundi Markets in Napier Road. Full line up info on www.offbeatmusicfestival.com.au
HOLY HOLY have just released their 4th studio album HELLO MY BEAUTIFUL WORLD, to extensive critical acclaim including 4 star reviews from NME, Rolling Stone and the AU Review, and was awarded triple j Feature Album week of release.
Recorded in a series of modest studios and spare rooms in Tasmania and Victoria, HELLO MY BEAUTIFUL WORLD, featuring top 5 triple j most-played tracks “How You Been”, “Port Rd” and “The Aftergone”, is perhaps their most fully realised. Built upon a foundation of electronic beats and rolling synths, the record combines lush string arrangements, May-esque guitar riffs and chanted vocals to produce a heady and persuasive mix. The record moves fluidly through a collection of feverish moods and atmospheres, unfolding unpredictably and building to a series of fierce and manic highs. It’s a dense and ambitious record suited to close and repeated listening. HOLY HOLY embark on an extensive 20 date national tour of Australia to celebrate the album, in March-May 2022.
ROLLING BLACKOUTS COASTAL FEVER
After years spent looking out at landscapes and loved ones and an increasingly unstable world, ROLLING BLACKOUTS C F have turned their gaze inward, to their individual pasts and the places that inform them, on their second record, SIDEWAYS TO NEW ITALY.
Lead by singer-songwriter-guitarists Tom Russo, Joe White and Fran Keaney, the guitar-pop five-piece returned home to Australia after the relentless touring schedule that came following the release of their critically regarded debut 'Hope Downs'. After feeling the literal and metaphorical ground under their feet had shifted, the band began grasping for something reliable.
For Keaney, that translated into writing "pure romantic fiction" and consciously avoiding the temptation of angsty break-up songs, while Russo looked north to a "bizarre place" that captured the feeling of manufacturing a sense of home when his own had disappeared.
The record’s lead single Cars in Space is emblematic of the band’s approach to songwriting. After arriving at an instinctual space while jamming, they bottle the specific chemistry that comes of the five of them locking into one another, and “reverse-engineer them into a weird pop song”, White explains. The panicky helplessness of realising a break-up is imminent is brought to life not just through Keaney’s lyrics, but sonically through a spiral of three guitars, duelling and dancing around one another in a way Rolling Blackouts have mastered.
