Salary, lead by front person Sean Gorman is a collection of like minded free thinking spirits who just happen to make some wonderfully lo-fi pop music that transcends genre and feel. A true big band, Salary’s atmospheric and expansive music cross borders of genres, transcending time and place.
Every so often a voice captures a moment in time, Jack Davies and the Bush Chooks may have captured 2018/19 in the best possible way. Slow, melodic and deliberate song writing that evoke quintessential West Australian imagery, Jack Davies is the voice of a new generation of Perth storytellers.
Hexx are hard to define, so lets not. It’s apocalyptic ambience. Just come and see them and experience the ferociousness of a band that is at times make you want to take one step back, and two steps forward.
Having recently signed to local WA label Group Therapy Records, Gazey are one of those bands at In The Pines that few will know but all will love. Their synth heavy, groove-laden tunes will fill Somerville Auditorium with a pure sense of joy.
One of Perth’s finest national exports, Mt Mountain have been making music around Perth for close to ten years and just keep getting better. Their most recent album Golden Rise is a triumph of modern post rock music and a slight departure from their normal epic tunes, their ‘pop album’ you may say. Filled with delicious hooks and driving melodies, Mt Mountain are the perfect Pines band.
These bands join Cold Meat, Didion’s Bible, Downsyde, Flanders, Gemma Farrell Quintet, Noah Dillon, The Little Lord Street Band.
Time: 11am - 10pm
Venue: UWA Somerville Auditorium
