While Danika has undoubtedly been kicking goals as her music career continues to blossom (...) this is far from the last time the world of music will be blown away by her powerful creations’ Tyler Jenke – Rolling Stone. Danika Smith performs a raw, timeless style of folk music with undertones of jazz and soul. She is known for her tender topics, honey stick melodies and charismatic satire. But something's shifting. It's 2020, where women in music are being recognized and supported, so she feels it's time to get experimental. Folk is heaven, no doubt, but curiosity, desire and the inner groove has unavoidably begun Danika Smith's metamorphosis. Following the release of her second single ‘Sweet Mellow D’ in October 2020 and a small run of sold out shows at Colour earlier this year, Danika has been experimenting with a new band and will be hitting the Gaso to debut her new formation with the help of wonderful Maple Glider on support duties!
Emerging electronic talent Close To Quiet is stepping out into the Melbourne music scene with the release of new music and their debut live show.
Akin to Todd Terje or Melbourne locals Tornado Wallace and Andras, Close To Quiet is staking their claim in the field of chilled beats, dank downtempo and euphoric electronica.
Originally hailing from Auckland before migrating to Melbourne, Close To Quiet brings their background in computers, technology and installation art to create an energetic and captivating electronic liveset.
Off the back of two well received releases in December 2020, Close To Quiet will put out a new single on March 18th with a show at The Gasometer Hotel. Also featuring on the bill is acclaimed Melbourne artist Lewis Coleman, veteran DJ Ryan Berkeley, and performers Prudence and Nicholas Kage.
