The high-energy party starters will be celebrating eight years of anthemic bangers and electrifying live shows, kicking it off with a massive hometown party at The Croxton Bandroom this June.
With two independently-released EP’s Holy Sick (2015) and Wild & Weak (2017), as well as barnstorming singles like ‘Same Same’, ‘Wild & Weak’, ‘I For An Eye’, and recent single ‘Labrador’, this band is hot on our radar. Now, they’re kicking off on a massive 12 date tour throughout May and June. We chat to vocalist and powerhouse Marie DeVita ahead of the shows.
Hand-poured in Geelong, Grace & Marie was founded on a love for all things candle-related. Forté’s Chloe Cicero spoke to Cartier Finesse, owner of Grace & Marie Soy Candles about her creative venture.
There’s nothing subtle about this band. Consisting of members of The Drones, High Tension and Harmony (Gareth Liddiard, Fiona Kitschin, Lauren Hammel and Erica Dunn), Tropical F#ck Storm is their name and A Laughing Death in Meatspace is the name of their swanky debut album.
