January 3

Leah Senior

Melbourne folk diviner Leah Senior silences audiences with her other-worldly presence and unique lyricism. Her latest album Pretty Faces (2017) pays homage to her dark folk roots while hinting at pop and psychedelic undertones. The album twirls gently in its own form of 60s folk revival with fragile but effortlessly nimble melodies and prose like lyricism.

Good Morning

Melbourne’s Good Morning are beloved at home and abroad. The band released two albums in 2019 and just returned from their first ever USA tour. Their sound is marked by propulsive guitar melodies and lyrics of concise, casual poetry. Slightly belying their decidedly no-frills approach to recording and playing live, the band consistently pack out Melbourne venues.
