Spotted Mallard, MELBOURNE, VIC
The Orbweavers returned to the stage late 2017 with their much anticpated new album Deep Leads.
Deep Leads is about buried and hidden things. Mining the land, the body and mind. Old rivers of feeling. Poison/panacea. Extraction/preservation. Escapism/courage. Cycles of decay and return. Deep Leads is the underlying layer to their previous album Loom. Where Loom explored the basalt bed of the Merri Creek, Deep Leads heads underground and within, exploring industrial, agricultural and personal histories (Blue Lake, The Dry, Invertebrate City), heavy and precious metals (Radium Girls, Mine), internal realms of escape and quest (Poison Garden, Cyclamen, Nitrates).
Having recently been awarded a fellowship to research and compose pieces about Melbourne's waterways , you always get a history lesson with each Orbweavers show.
"Melbourne's The Orbweavers have dealt in delicate, lilting indie folk for years and their output has always been great. But Poison Garden is a new level" - BEST NEW MUSIC, DOUBLE J
