RHYE ANNOUNCE NATIONAL TOUR – PLAYING CANBERRA, MARCH 3

Posted on October 22, 2018

Gifted songwriting, breathtaking vocals and deft instrumental arrangements – Rhye debuts in Canberra in March 2019.

A mosaic of stirring piano, physical percussion, buzzing analog synths, and expansive vocals, Rhye finds humanity in musicality. Shrouded in mystery, the group first surfaced setting the Internet abuzz with ambiguous imagery, sophisticatedly sensual music videos, and that distinctive falsetto.

Originally a duo conceived in the studio, RHYE has transformed into a collective led by vocalist and producer Milosh and elevated by a cast of accomplished multi-instrumentalists, creating an intoxicating blend of R&B influenced, deeply emotive music.

JIM MOGINIE & THE FAMILY DOG – PLAYING MOLO LIVE @ ANU, NOVEMBER 29

Posted on October 22, 2018

Back in 2006 Jim Moginie (Midnight Oil) founded The Family Dog to promote his first solo album ‘Alas Folkloric’. They went on to perform and tour together. In November and December 2018, The Family Dog is hitting the road after a long hiatus and

showcasing songs and tunes from the new album ‘Bark Overtures’ , recorded live at Oceanic Studios. It will be released on November 5 by Sony Music Australia on CD and vinyl and Orchard digitally in worldwide.

The Family Dog is guitarist Kent Steedman and drummer Paul Loughhead from Northern Beaches legends and punk rockers The Celibate Rifles, plus multi-instrumentalist Tim Kevin from La Huva, Exiles and Youth Group. Live, this line-up is all about

dynamics, travelling from a whisper to a scream, from a blitzkrieg, to trippy psychedelia, with the odd Oil’s classic thrown in for good measure.

Fresh from Midnight Oil’s reunion and massively successful Grand Circle World Tour, Moginie is back and has picked up some of his own projects, in which he invested so much of his time and talents in the intervening years between

Midnight Oil’s break up in late 2002 and the bands reformation last year.
