With his new album The Sparrow due for release July 13th, Spunk Records is pleased to announce that Lawrence Arabia will be performing an album preview show at Melbourne’s the Toff In Town.
The Sparrow is Arabia's third solo album - the evocative follow up to his Taite Music Prize, Silver Scroll awarded Chant Darling, released in 2009. Written across his travels in New York and London, and recorded live at a home-studio in Surrey, it draws on the symphonic sounds of Scott Walker and Serge Gainsbourg - wide, open pop songs, set to Arabia's charming turn of phrase.
Previewing The Sparrow's songs in full, Arabia will be joined by his full New Zealand band. It is the first time Lawrence Arabia has been in Australia since 2009.
Choo Choo's at The Toff is open from 5pm daily, serving dinner and supper until 3am weekdays and 5am on weekends. For dinner reservations/enquiries call 9639 8770http://www.choochoos.com.au
