Brisbane trio The Goon Sax combine post-punk’s taut, nervy energy with sweet, airy tunefulness for an impossibly charming indie-pop sound you’re sure to fall in love with.
Still in high school when they made their first album Up To Anything in 2016, their brand of awkwardly transcendent teenage guitar pop took them into end of year lists for BBC6, Billboard and Rough Trade and off touring to the UK and Europe. Their second album We’re Not Talking sees them all grown up (well 19 anyway!) and taking the enthusiasms of youth and twisting them into darker, more sophisticated shapes. It’s glorious guitar pop that ‘perfectly captures those awkward confusions on the road to adulthood’ (MOJO).
Support is from Ben Evolent, an award-winning artist who has developed a dynamic range, from wistful folk to sweltering swamp-rock. His songs are filled with a healthy dose of raw emotion, relatable truths, loveable melodies and lively hooks. A down to earth, energetic and engaging live performer, he has supported touring acts such as Kingswood, Bubsy Marou, Boo Seeka, Benny Walker, Caravana Sun and All Our Exes Live in Texas.
