Liz Martin + Inga Liljeström + ollo
Take three Sydney friends and musicians. Add two to different parts of Europe. Wait a while, mix in some European influence… bring the third to Europe – mix together and pour. This is one heady cocktail of a bill, and one that is unlikely to ever be repeated. A must for anyone curious to know what goes on a little more under the radar in Australia than Courtney Barnett or Tame Impala. Expect a musical intimacy where you may catch yourself holding your breath.
Liz Martin, renowned Sydney singer songwriter who has in her time spanned whisper quiet emotional intensity through to dancefloor friendly electronics, brings her delicious melodic sensibility to this, her London debut. Liz’s understated delivery sometimes belies the nuanced complexity of her songs – don’t be fooled.
Inga Liljeström, darling of the French underground brings her potent brew of passion, love and loss. Better known for the filmic, noirish sweep of her recorded work Inga will be performing a solo set. The last time she performed at SJQ the audience appeared lost in her voice, her warm stage presence the only anchor.
ollo, the shapeshifting musical project of Alex Crowfoot, has no fixed musical abode but for this night, in this town, you can expect a quieter mix of electronics, a live instrument or two, and some affecting songs from somewhere in a 20 year musical history.
