The Slingers

The Slingers have cemented themselves as one of the most unique bands of the contemporary Australian underground/alternative scene. To celebrate the long-awaited release of their debut full-length LP Sentimentalism, due Friday, July 7 via Flightless Records, they embark on their biggest tour yet, bringing their impassioned live performance to The Bridge Hotel.

The Slingers have sought through their music to balance and synthesise a number of oppositional artistic forces: lyrics that are both tongue-in-cheek and haltingly sincere, live energy that borrows simultaneously from Elvis and Angel Olsen, and a sound that is as comfortable producing outlaw country as it is exploring drum machines and synthesisers. Tickets to the Sentimentalism album tour are on sale now.

Tickets $25 plus BF | $30 on the door
Doors | 9pm
The Slingers | 9.30pm – 10.30pm
