The return national tour of London Grammar has now completely SOLD OUT. The British trio won over hearts of Australian audiences after a career defining set at Falls Festival in 2013. Their dreamy twilight set took them from an emerging young band taking over airwaves around the country, to some of the world’s best live performers.
London Grammar’s seminal debut album “If You Wait” has since been awarded iTunes UK Album Of The Year and nominated for Best Breakthrough Artist at last year’s Brit Awards, as well as most recently taking home the converted Best Song Musically and Lyrically award for ‘Strong’ at the Ivor Novello awards, not to mention raking up millions of views on Youtube and launching hundreds of remixes.
Joining London Grammar in some of the country’s most iconic venues will this year’s hottest young upcoming bands with the just announced Until the Ribbon Breaks and New York’s Wet.
‘Until the Ribbon Breaks is on the verge of something bigger’ says Wall Street Journal of the once solo project of talented producer and songwriter Pete Lawrie Winfield. Expanding to two more members the band deftly weaves synthesizers, electric guitars and digital percussion and Winfield’s moody, breathy falsetto that has won him famous fans, including Falls alumni and acclaimed hip-hop duo and now collaborators Run the Jewels. Their ground-breaking album “A Lesson Unlearnt” has since skyrocketed around the Internet, garnering a global fan base and this tour offers Australian audiences their very first chance to hear it live.
Brooklyn three-piece Wet have been not-so-quietly making disillusioned pop music with a laid-back and lo-fi elegance since the release of their self-titled EP. Electronic music has never been this bone-chillingly beautiful. Humble beginnings saw Wet begin as a long-distance collaboration between Providence, New York, and Los Angeles—long email threads of garageband demos and mp3s, but a showcase at 2013’s CMJ sparked a wave of interest in the trio, and the band signed their collection of what the New York Times called ‘majestically downcast love songs’ to Dew Process.
