Still glowing after unveiling their stunning sophomore album My Resignation to rapturous acclaim in October, dream-pop duo Geowulf have ensured their star will keep ascending as they lock in a cosmic run of Australian dates for February 2020.
Kicking off in Sydney, saying G’day to their home fans on the Sunshine Coast and winding through intimate venues in Brisbane and Melbourne, this now London-based team of Star Kendrick and Toma Banjanin will be fresh off a comprehensive run through the US and UK and sharing tracks from this year’s release as well as 2018’s stunning debut Great Big Blue.
Drawing from the likes of Beach House, Mazzy Star and Fleetwood Mac as they present a patient, shimmering bed of guitar mastery and centimetre perfect vocals, Geowulf are a band a lifetime in the making.
Toma and Star have been friends since they both grew up on Queensland’s dazzling Sunshine Coast. Despite forging a strong friendship and bond, the two never actually collaborated musically until much later in life.
