Gareth Liddiard is founder, singer, songwriter and guitarist for The Drones, Tropical Fuck Storm and Springtime.
“Gareth Liddiard’s reputation strides ahead of him. Enviable to most musicians and indeed writers in Australia, it’s the well deserved mantle of one of the country’s most celebrated songwriters” – Tonedeaf
“The Drones frontman has rightfully been praised as one of the finest lyricists in the country, with an eye for novelistic detail and a command of wrenching themes” – Sydney Morning Herald
Recently nominated for the Environmental Music Prize for her song In Love With This Place, Jess Ribeiro has cemented herself as one of the Australian underground’s most engaging and unpredictable creative forces and her evolution is only just beginning.
A shape-shifting musical enigma, the near-untouchable quality of Jess’s recorded output is astonishingly consistent and the wait for new music is always worthwhile. Her songs are cinematic in scope: music that travels, across deserts like a Western, through city streets like Film Noir. Narrative and poetic, Ribeiro’s lyrics are rhythmic and evocative, conjuring images that are dimly-lit, but nonetheless electric.
