City Calm Down Announce Debut NZ Shows

As Part Of The Echoes In Blue Tour July 2018 - New Album Out Friday 6 April

With their highly anticipated second album Echoes In Blue due for release on Friday 6 April via label I OH YOU, Melbourne four-piece City Calm Down today announce they’re set to undertake their first ever New Zealand shows in Auckland and Wellington this July.

City Calm Down is one of the most dynamic bands currently making music in Australia. Ten years after forming, with a new album up their sleeve and over six million streams on Spotify, plus a decade of touring behind them – including multiple sold-out headline tours and major Australian festivals (Laneway, Splendour In The Grass, Falls, etc.) – City Calm Down have forged a reputation as a fierce live act not to be missed.

April’s long-awaited release of Echoes In Blue follows the band’s acclaimed 2015 debut album, In A Restless House, and sees City Calm Down – Jack Bourke, Sam Mullaly, Lee Armstrong and Jeremy Sonnenberg – reuniting with In A Restless House producer Malcolm Besley. On the astonishing new record, their accomplished songwriting takes an unprecedented step forward: Echoes In Blue is the sound of a band staking their claim.

Before heading out across Australia and New Zealand this June/July, City Calm Down will also tour the UK and Europe in May 2018, including appearances at festivals The Great Escape and Gold Sounds.

Tickets to all shows are on sale now - grab them quick and don't miss out!

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Harmony of Difference (part 2)

Top international world music artists seldom make it down to this neck of the woods, so for those of us into this sort of thing WOMAD is certainly a welcome addition to the cultural calendar.

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions.
