In 2016 Hana Maru released their self titled debut album and are currently working on their follow-up EP Shut Up! You Are!. Hana Maru are a psych pop band based on the work of singer-songwriter-guitarist-pianist Jill Farrar, the string section of Bec Blackney’s violin and Gregory Crocetti’s cello lifts the band’s pop songs, and lends weight to their ballads. Drummer Esala Liynage and bassist and guitarist Andy Hazel round out the five-piece, and push newer songs such as Shit Year and Now in the direction of the dance floor.
Tammy Haider creates music that has an elegant, bittersweet honesty and is in the final stages of finishing her debut album, “The One”. “The One” sees Tammy exploring a wider, stranger, more reflective sonic canvas and is highly unfiltered, a braver yet natural progression from her 2014 ep,”Genuine Feeling”.
Multi-instrumentalist Andrew Bencina and bassist Andy Papps will be joining her this evening for what is sure to be a magical performance.
Laura Macfarlane is the founding mainstay of Ninetynine, a band who combine indie guitar rock stylings with tuned percussion and layerings of casio keyboard to create a unique kind of pop music. Some might call it casio-pop with elements of jagged indie rock. Performing solo this evening it will surely be something special to see Laura’s songs in a glorious, stripped back setting.
Come celebrate your Easter Sunday with some sweet pop, entry is only $5.
