LIBRARY SIESTA (SINGLE LAUNCH) // HACKY SACK // HARK MARQUEE
We acknowledge this event will take place on the stolen land of the Gadigal-Wangal people of the Eora nation. We pay our respects to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to all First Nations people. Sovereignty was never ceded.
Join Library Siesta and friends in celebration of their new single, â€œI Wouldnâ€™t Mindâ€. Co-presented with Off The List Records, the event is organised with access and inclusion at the forefront. With both live and livestreaming options available, you can choose your own adventure: get amongst the sweaty excitement from inside Moshpit Bar or kick back with a cup of tea, a warm blanket and be part of the fun from the comfort of your own lounge room.
LIBRARY SIESTA write songs for heavy hearts that keep you on your toes. Inside melodic hooks and atop bright, scuzzy guitars are a collection of stories that shine a light on some of the darker sides of humanity. The Eora-based five piece are set to release their second full-length album later this year through Off The List Records, an independent label working to make DIY, experimental and indie music spaces more accessible and inclusive. â€œI Wouldnâ€™t Mindâ€ is the first offering from the album and is due out 22 April.
HACKY SACK were born when Sydney singer-songwriter Huck Hastings met Sachin Burns (guitarist for Run Marlowe) while working at a cafe/bookshop on Sydneyâ€™s Bondi Beach. They became fast friends through their mutual love for well-crafted pop songs, getting through the evening shifts by sharing their latest musical discoveries with each other. The pair began collaborating during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic and have since released two singles from their upcoming body of work which explores friendship, apathy and an impending apocalypse.
HARK MARQUEE sits within both stumbling and persevering that something human cuts across. Something that will draw you in and not just wash over you. Thatâ€™s always been the aim for YEEVS singer-songwriter and guitarist Bradley Cork. His new projectis an exercise in such a practice. Having released â€˜Standard Whim, Vital Prizeâ€™ last year, Hark Marquee are ready to realise those songs as a two-piece.
