Event Details

Satisfyingly schizophrenic, Clue To Kalo's third full-length release Lily Perdida is ten voices in one, all of them a different branch off the same electric folk tree.

Amidst jangly guitar, mod ribbons of flute, and the voices of mastermind Mark Mitchell and duet partner Ellen Carey, ten musical perspectives on fictional character Lily Perdida emerge, each song from the point of view of a different person in her life. A post-modern frolic of keyboards, harpsichords and laptops, Lily Perdida is a gorgeous and sonically sprawling commentary on the nature of history and identity. Each succeeding track reinterprets, misreads or conflicts with the accounts that came before to collectively create an anti-portrait of the main character. The music ebbs and flows with the changing characters but never strays from the utterly satisfying sound we have come to expect from Clue To Kalo.

 

Hailing from Adelaide, Clue To Kalo mastermind Mark Mitchell applies a lo-fi aesthetic to pristine computer-based production in which the technology is the means rather than the end. A generous use of layered melodies, elemental textures, and multi-tracked vocals highlight a vast range of influences and solidify the fact that Clue To Kalo is first and foremost a songwriter.

 

In addition to headlining their own shows in Australia, CTK have shared the stage with the likes of Architecture In Helsinki, Four Tet, Manitoba, Death Cab For Cutie and Castiotone For The Painfully Alone. Overseas they have recently completed a three months tour of United States and Japan. They have also participated in showcases at festivals such as SXSW and CMJ.

 

Inventive without being inaccessible, Clue To Kalo has established himself as a singular artist of extraordinary scope and depth.

 

Featuring Clue to Kalo
