London duo Oh Wonder sold out both of their first-ever live Australian dates within 48 hours of going on sale. With both shows upgraded due to overwhelming response, Sydney’s new venue already sold out and Melbourne soon to follow, we’re excited to announce the supports for both shows.
Folk-tronica songstress Gordi is confirmed to warm up the stage at The Corner on Tuesday January 5 with her vintage vocal layering, earthy guitar textures and delicate modern electronic production.
Sydney’s show at Oxford Art Factory Wednesday January 6 will open with PLGRMS, a musical project born of the talented Sydney-based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jonathan Bowden and accomplished Australian born, London-based singer-songwriter Toma Banjanin.
Oh Wonder also add one more date to their busy Australian schedule as they are announced to support Halsey’s sold out show at Sydney’s Metro Theatre, Thursday January 7.
After spending the last twelve months releasing single tracks online to a rapidly forming fan base on the first of every month, Oh Wonder, who have been melting hearts across the globe with their captivating live performances have sold out over 22 of their debut performances including two shows at NYC’s Rough Trade, two shows at London’s The ICA and two shows at Village Underground. They have just been announced for The Great Escape festival plus added another 17 dates across Europe and the UK for March 2016 with their O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire show selling out the very same day tickets went on sale.
22 year old Sydney folktronica artist Gordi caused a stir in late 2014 and early 2015 with her luminous indie pop songs ‘Nothing As It Seems’, ‘Taken Blame’ and ‘Can We Work It Out’ being picked up by triple j and community radio around Australia, with tastemaker blogs drawing comparisons to Asgeir, Tallent Man on Earth and Angel Olsen.
Gordi’s debut EP out early 2016 is set to take your breath away.
PLGRMS’ Jonathan Bowden began working on songs in Sydney with producer Ross James (Bertie Blackman, Thelma Plum) and then sent them across the globe for Toma Banjanin to work on lyrics and record vocals in London. The song ‘Pieces’ is the debut single from PLGRMS. Featuring The Preatures’ Luke Davison on drums, ‘Pieces’ is a dark yet inviting foray into the world of PLGRMS.
PLGRMS are currently putting the finishing touches on their debut EP, which will be out in early 2016.
