Betty & Oswald
BETTY & OSWALD began when Claudia Schmidt and Pete Sotiropoulos were living in a small apartment by the ocean in the south of Sydney. Sleeping on a mattress they found on the side of the road, and spending their days writing music, the idea for Betty & Oswald began to slowly form. Fast forward a couple of years and the band has changed vastly from its seaside beginnings, the addition of bass and drums with Sammy Sudhakar and Harry Cramer heralding a new era for the band. Yet there is still something from that formative time that remains. There is a romanticism that lingers, an idealisation of youth and art, and also a pervading bittersweetness-a sense that everything, including that dream-like time spent living by the ocean, will fade eventually.
Working with producer Burke Reid (The Drones, Courtney Barnett) the band spent the first half of 2017 working on their next EP-one which traces experiences of living on the peripherals of ordinary life, the undulations of relationships and a desire to encapsulate something profound. The sound traverses a dream-like landscape with a distinct spaciousness and malleability. A mixture of dream pop and psych-rock, the whole thing is weaved together by the unmistakable interplay between the two lead vocals, reminiscent of Fleetwood Mac. Catch the band in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane this November to celebrate the release of the first single 'Figure It Out,' and at the sold out Festival Of The Sun in December. Their EP will be out in early 2018.
Georgia June is an indie-rock/pop Sydney-based band. Influenced by 80-90s fem-rock, Georgia fronts the band with her honest and powerful presence, captivating people through her confronting lyrics and endless energy.
