SCOTT & CHARLENE'S WEDDING

SCOTT & CHARLENE'S WEDDING

Sat 9th June 8:30pm

Melbourne's much loved slacker-pop group, the impeccably named Scott & Charlene’s Wedding, are back with not so much a brand new album, as a generation’s glimpse of love, home-sickness, basketball, alienation, rock ‘n’ roll and all things that matter. Any Port In A Storm is fated to become your essential backdrop to the summer of 2013. The brainchild of the amiable and unashamedly charismatic Craig Dermody, this new record consists of entirely new material, recorded with Dermody’s new band in a completely different corner of the globe to 2010’s debut, Para Vista Social Club.

Having uprooted from Melbourne, Australia to New York City, the Big Apple has replaced Melbourne as inspiration for this latest set of trials and tribulations. His heart-on-sleeve lyrics reveal tales of everyday Dermody life, somehow more absurdly unhinged, humorous and poignant than the lives of his peers. This is made all the better for taking place in the middle of downtown Manhattan, a place supposedly built on dreams and ‘making it’.

The Scott & Charlene’s bandwagon has already clicked into gear, with acclaim and plaudits from Pitchfork, Spin and The Quietus, features in articles in the Guardian and Independent, as well as international radio support and a spot on this year’s Glastonbury Music Festival.
