A tour forged out of mutual artistic appreciation and kinship, three kilter powerhouse Naarm-based musos, V, Maxine Gillon & Ghost Bitch (US), are bringing TRIPLE THREAT to Volta, Ballarat.
– About the artists –
V: V is an Australian/English gender non-conforming underground musician, artist and producer, whose music practice was forged in the hardcore and leftist scene in Berlin and later fine-tuned in Narrm. Their 2019 Album So Pure was nominated for a Music Victoria Award, and their music takes heavy influence from synth and new wave, noise, punk and dark-wave. They are known for their dynamic live shows and have toured as V in the EU, the UK, and Australia.
Maxine Gillon: Melbourne-based singer-songwriter Maxine Gillon has made a name for herself with her lush expansive songs that introject the energy and attitudes of the rich countercultural history of alternative music into a contemporary eclectic form, devoid of any genre constraints or limitations. She is also known for her gutter intellectual lyricism.
Ghost Bitch: US based artist Ghost Bitch, currently based in the western hemisphere on sabbatical, has followed the traditional Britney Spears to Rowland S. Howard trajectory; like most suburban-bred “American” girls. It’s her ability to traverse these seemingly incompatible musical spheres while maintaining a reverence for both that lies at the heart of Ghost Bitch’s charm: equal parts bouncing beats and the harrowing expressway to oblivion; a bubblegum Stooges.
