Madeline Leman & The Desert Swells

Madeline Leman & The Desert Swells celebrate the launch of their new single ‘This is Living’ with two sets at Shiraz Republic.

Madeline Leman and The Desert Swells are a ‘femmericana’ band from Melbourne. Both hard to define and easy to love, their combination of 60s surf, 70s pop and Americana twang will take you on a wild ride that you won’t want to get off. Madeline weaves nostalgia soaked tales through light filled rooms to create authentic music of great storytelling and musical joy. Captivating audiences with lush vocals and stories of strong women who ramble their way through the mundane and the profound, The Desert Swells create a fresh and exciting Americana sound.

‘This is Living’ is a joyful celebration of life and its flaws. It simultaneously laments the cruelty of modern living and basks in its simple pleasures, posing us the question – can one exist without the other? This is Living is your fun-loving soundtrack to the end of the world.
