RETIREE – Saturday 20th May – Freda’s
Retiree is the Sydney/Melbourne based project of Matt Crowley, Tori Holleman & Marco Vella. The trio have spent enough time together over the last few years that their broad & varied influences blend into a unique emulsion of strongly rhythmic and emotional music.
Retiree have released two 12″s both locally & internationally; Retiree EP (2013) on Plastic World followed by This Place EP (2015) on Rhythm Section/Plastic World & their live set
throws all their keyboards, guitar pedals and woodblocks onto a stage, resulting in long-legged convulsing to drum machines under honest lyrics.
After a lengthy period of geographic dislocation and songwriting, Retiree have spent a stint locked in a beach house somewhere on the east coast to stretch and solidify a bunch of new music, of which ‘Continental’ – out now through Plastic World – is the first offering.
