RHYE

^^

When: Friday 1st March
Where: Metro Theatre

Niche and Supersonic are excited to announce that dream pop collective RHYE have added two exclusive headline shows in Brisbane and Sydney to their Australian Tour in February and March 2019. A mosaic of emotive piano keys, physical percussion, buzzing analog synths, and expansive vocals, RHYE find humanity in musicality. Shrouded in mystery, the group first surfaced setting the Internet abuzz with ambiguous imagery, sophisticatedly sensual music videos, and that distinctive falsetto. Following the runaway online success of two initial singles, the critically acclaimed debut album Woman (Loma Vista Recordings) was released in 2013 and lauded by critics from Pitchfork (“Best New Album”) to The Guardian to New York Times. Gifted songwriting, breathtaking vocals and deft instrumental arrangements combine to create an intoxicating blend of R&B influenced, deeply emotive music making the album a staple for provoking intimate moments. Since the release of Woman, RHYE has relentlessly toured to establish a devoted global fanbase and enrapture crowds in theatres and at festivals worldwide including riveting sets at Coachella and Pitchfork Paris amongst many others. Originally a duo conceived in the studio, RHYE has transformed into a collective led by vocalist and producer Milosh and elevated by a cast of accomplished multi-instrumentalists. As the band began writing new material, the expansive live show indelibly impacted the music for their second full-length album Blood, released February 2nd, 2018, resulting in a warmer, more organic sound. It’s a new beginning and a new musical experience. It’s RHYE. Don’t miss your chance to see RHYE’S dreamlike live show. “RHYE boasts a sound that lingers long in the memory” - Mojo.

Parliament Funkadelic feat. George Clinton

^^

When: Saturday 20th April
Where: Enmore Theatre

George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic will be ensuring that all Aussie fans have one last chance to see George perform live in Australia this April as he plays both a Melbourne and Sydney date before his Funk-a-thon farewell to the land down under. He is sure to ‘Tear The Roof Off’’ with his Funk-melodies which still have a major influence and inspiration for today’s Hip-Hop and RnB artists. Recording both as Parliament and Funkadelic, George Clinton revolutionised R&B during the ‘70s, twisting soul music into Funk by adding influences from several late 1960s acid heroes such as Jimi Hendrix, Frank Zappa and Sly Stone. The Parliament/Funkadelic machine ruled music during the ‘70s, capturing over 40 R&B hit singles and recording three platinum albums. The early 1990s saw the rise of funk-inspired Rap and Funk Rock that re-established the status of Clinton as one of the most important forces in the recent history of black music. Clinton’s music then became the soundtrack for the rap movement, as artists from MC Hammer to Snoop Dogg depended heavily on the infectious groove of Clinton productions as the foundation of their recordings. Clinton’s inspiration, dedication and determination resulted in the elevation of Funk music to complete recognition and acceptance as a true genre in and of itself.

Ron Funches (USA)

^^

When: Saturday 27th April
Where: Factory Theatre

Razor-sharp yet soft and cuddly like a baby's blanket, Ron Funches is a hugely in demand US comedian who frequently headlines shows across the US, UK and Canada. Described as "comedy's relaxing equivalent of a glass of wine in a fragrant bubble bath" by UK comedy Bible Chortle, and citing Steven Wright, Tig Notaro and Todd Barry amongst his influences, Ron's laidback stage persona is a perfect vessel for his incisive observations on everything from casual racism to raising a son with autism. Funches regularly performs stand-up on The Conan O'Brien Show and The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon and his first TV special, The Half Hour on Comedy Central, was ranked as the 11th-best of 2014 by Vulture. Now with his full hour, Giggle Fit immediately hitting number one on the iTunes comedy charts, garnering praise from the likes of Dwayne ‘The Rock' Johnson, Busy Philipps, Patton Oswalt and Seth Myers, and becoming the highest rated Comedy Central special in two years one its release, it's clear the world can't get enough of the "big cuddly teddy bear" with the soft voice and biting wit. Giggle Fit gets its' Australian release on the 13th of February through Comedy Central. From co-starring with Chris D'Elia in Undateable to writing for The Eric Andre Show and appearing on Drunk History, Portlandia, and Another Period, Ron's credits read like a ‘best of' the most popular comedy TV & movies of the decade. With unique low-key delivery, incisive punchlines and shrewd set-ups that led the New York Times to declare that he "Purrs like a kitty cat, stings like a bee", don't miss Ron Funches on his Australian debut! "Funches takes to the stage like a boxer... telling tales that are charmingly frivolous. A delight" - Chortle (UK). "A subtle, savvy performer" - New York Times (US). ★★★★1/2 "Funches is one of the most original voices in the stand-up comedy world right now, and his hysterical material is crafted with incredible finesse" - Exclaim.ca (US) . "Funches's wry worldview and fun-loving spirit are infectious, and there are intriguing flashes of steel beneath the surface jollity" - The Guardian (UK).

Rejjie Snow

^^

When: Tuesday 30th April
Where: Metro Theatre

Rejjie is a scene unto himself. It's not just that he grew up the only black kid on Dublin's Northside, where there's no music scene to speak of. He lives wherever his suitcase settles, wherever the songs send him - Los Angeles, New York, London - tangling words into beautifully complex knots that blur biography with fantasy over a shifting mass of rainy loops, technicolor keys, and trippy percussion. And then there's his voice, deep and otherworldly, capable of riding a beat with metronomic precision, cooing to raw piano, or yawping Prince-like over a soul-rock-jazz groove. His influences are as disparate as George Michael and Charles Bukowski. He designs clothes and paints. He sees the moon as his first love. With creativity and marvel of astral proportions, it's no wonder that Rejjie was initially signed by Elton John's management company (now with Machine Management), has toured with Madonna, harbours a treasure trove of unreleased collabs with King Krule, and is part of the illusive 300 Entertainment roster, alongside fellow outsiders Young Thug and Fetty Wap. Making albums in the middle of making other albums, Rejjie's relentless ability to create saw him drop a full-length mixtape just 8 months before his LP: 2017's The Moon & You, an experimental beast of a different stripe that, despite a Joey Bada$$ cameo, puts him more squarely in the camp of genre-less auteurs like Shabazz Palaces, Anderson Paak, and Thundercat . It is safe to say, though, that his highly anticipated debut album Dear Annie, released in February this year, is the crown jewel amongst a kingdom of gold. Written and recorded across Los Angeles, London and Paris, it's a genre-spanning magnum opus of 20 tracks from the wise-beyond-his-years 24-year old. In his own bold and idiosyncratic manner, Rejjie croons and rhymes equally while inviting you to embark on a journey to the surreal depths of his soul. Don't miss your chance to see Rejjie live in Australia for the very first time.
