TESTING OUT SOME NEW SONGS AT OUR LAST MELBOURNE SHOW FOR 2019
Melbourne! We’re gonna tear ourselves out of the recording studio to play you a few new songs and a bunch of your
favourites at our last show for 2019 at Sooki Lounge on November 15th. Grab tickets here.
'BY SPECIAL ARRANGEMENT' IS OUT TODAY
With ‘By Special Arrangement’ we’re looking forward and back at the same time, as we head into our 20th Anniversary as a band next year.
Stripped-back, re-framed, re-worked, re-imagined…However you want to say it, the fact is that we have lived with some of these songs for a pretty significant slice of our lives, and they have become indelibly imprinted on us in many ways. We hope that they mean something to you too, and that you enjoy hearing them in a new light.
Huge thanks also to our friends Tim Rogers, Dan Sultan, Megan Washington and all of the other incredible musicians who took part in bringing this record to life.
"I GOT BURNED" STRINGS VERSION VIDEO FEAT. TIM ROGERS
Here’s the strings version of ‘I Got Burned’, featuring the hardest working bon vivant in the business: Mr Tim Rogers. We had plans to set up a full orchestra on location in a Louisiana swamp, with CGI vampires in a Hammer Horror gothic mansion, unfurling Spielberg storm clouds, torch-lights, bats and a bonfire - but we changed our minds at the last minute and decided to set up in a Church in Carlton.
We can also now reveal that Mr Rogers will be the third guest at the album launch at Melbourne Recital Centre Aug 15.
EXTRA SPECIAL GUESTS TO APPEAR AT ‘BY SPECIAL ARRANGEMENT’ LAUNCH REVEALED
We are beyond proud to reveal the long teased "Extra Special Guests" at 'By Special Arrangement - Symphonic Soul' are Megan Washington, Tim Rogers and Urthboy. We didn't think that we could be more excited about this show, but these three, alongside our own Kylie Auldst will make this pretty close to an all time high for us!
Here is our version of London Grammar’s “Strong” - a song we’ve always loved and one of two new cover versions we’ve recorded for the upcoming album.
Taking on something as iconic as this is not to be taken lightly - but Kylie Auldist has a way of unleashing so much pure, raw emotion that she seems to make every song sound like her own.
