After doing it for a couple laps around the Sun, Blue Velvet are packing the Tarago for one last go of it.
Sydney’s charming Indieheads Blue Velvet have quickly made a name for themselves amongst the lighthearted.
The three piece have channelled their inner goof to shape a unique, cacophonous sound and live show, placing them as an act that can’t be missed.
After making waves in the local Sydney scene, the band’s progression saw a transition from the elements of their emo roots, into a brighter sound which leans into indie-pop more than rock. Following this evolution in 2018, Music Feeds dubbed the band “a well-fed Pokemon” after releasing their EP “A Lesson In Regression”. Slowly followed by the release of their 90s lax lyrical nostalgia single “Soggy Cereal”, they were selected as competition winners by Triple J Unearthed and NIDA to release the music video of the 80s sonic inspired ‘It’s All Gravy’.
Blue Velvet are hanging up their hat as band, and this show is part of their last ever lap around the country. It's the last chance to see Blue Velvet in the flesh
South Summit (WA)
With infectious energy & charming demeanors, Perth indie-rockers South Summit have returned from their breakout singles ‘River Days’ & ‘Runaway’ to hit their stride with their most prolific release to date, ‘Tired of Waiting’. The quintet have been plying their trade for less than three years now, operating with a songwriting maturity that belies their youth. ‘Tired of Waiting’ marks the continued refinement of the South Summit “sound”, emerging from sparkles of reggae, rock & indie with the band performing with a sharpened clarity across the entirety of ‘Tired of Waiting’. Soaring lead lines are blended with reverberant guitars, whilst the enigmatic frontman Isaiah Reuben sings of haunting themes of heartbreak.
Taking the success of previous tracks ‘River Days’, ‘Runaway’ & now ‘Tired of Waiting’, the band are ardent & ready to storm Australia with a run of shows that sees them performing at Festival Of The Stone in Byron Bay, debut headline performances in Melbourne, Sydney & Brisbane, as well as reaching out to regional WA with gigs in Margaret River, Exmouth, Bunbury & Busselton.
Having landed a coveted position in Triple J Unearthed ‘Ones To Watch in 2022’ list, alongside a Triple J Unearthed feature artist slot, with support from Spotify Australia, there’s no doubt these shows will be a spark that ignites the flame for countless future tours across Australia, to fans eager & waiting to bask in the glow of South Summit’s glorious live performances.
