with special guest
$25 PRESALE, $30 DOOR
Navigating a wistful path from melancholy through madness, meanwhile exploring heterogeneity, refinement and dirty rotten groove, is Steve Balbi’s first single to emerge in four years, Modern Love.
On Sunday 4 November, to coincide with the release of his new single Modern Love, Balbi makes his debut at the Skylark Room with an exclusive intimate and eclectic performance featuring Mick Skelton (Baby Animals, Thirsty Merc) on drums and percussion, Beau Golden (Daniel Johns) on keys and piano, and very special guest, Stuart Fraser (Noiseworks).
It is a tremendous pleasure to announce that Stuart Fraser will join Balbi onstage for a unique set of reimagined favourites from the back catalogue, alongside eclectic out-takes and new material from Balbi’s forthcoming solo album, Humans.
Inspired by Brandon Stanton’s Humans of New York series, Balbi’s eminently anticipated follow-up to Black Rainbow (2013) sets an entirely new course for his enigmatic artistry.
For the new work by this eclectic composer, musician, and producer, in all its complexity, honours the virtuosity of an artist transcending the contemporary music landscape, in riff and verse.
The inherently intimate and eclectic incarnation, appearing at the Skylark Room promises a memorable evening, coalescing sentimentality, rock and soul.
The single Modern Love is out Friday 26 October; pre-sales from Friday 21 September.
“It’s good to be alive.” – Steve Balbi
