Annie Hamilton & Body Type - Co Headline Tour w/ Mid Wife Crisis
To celebrate the releases of their debut albums on the same day, Annie Hamilton and Body Type have joined together for a special co-headline show on Wednesday 15th June. Special guests to be announced.
ANNIE HAMILTON 'THE FUTURE IS HERE BUT IT FEELS KINDA LIKE THE PAST' ALBUM LAUNCH
Eora / Sydney-based musician, visual artist and designer Annie Hamilton will be performing an intimate and immersive live show to launch her long-awaited debut album, the future is here but it feels kinda like the past, out May 20, alongside a pop-up store showcasing the latest collection from her eponymous fashion label. Rejecting straight-forward narrative structure in favour of pinning down hyper-specific yet universally empathetic moments, the future is here but it feels kinda like the past is a stylised-yet-grainy collage of snapshots that span a mammoth range of emotion, sound and genre, but are tied together as documentation of little human moments, full of contradiction and duality, reality as metaphor and metaphor as reality, stumbling through life and trying to make some kind of beautiful, fleeting sense of it.
Following feverish anticipation, Body Type is taking their debut album Everything Is Dangerous But Nothing’s Surprising on tour across Australia.
In the wake of back-to-back tours and releases, Sophie McComish, Annabel Blackman, Cecil Coleman, and Georgia Wilkinson-Derums regrouped in early 2020, to record their debut album in eight days – shortly before they would become separated by the pandemic. Recorded and mastered by Jonathan Boulet, and entirely self-funded, the album is exultant, effusive, playful, cutting, and maybe most significantly, incandescent in its fury.
What makes Everything Is Dangerous But Nothing's Surprising such a thrilling debut is its ability to experiment without forfeiting indelible hooks. Across rollicking guitar chords, cathartic choruses, Body Type remain calm but sour, oozing with an inherent, subtle, 'don't fuck with us' cool that’s plainly understood without uttering a word. Break-up songs are coated in understated humour, unsolicited advice thrown away, and rage takes strange, new shapes. Simply put, with Everything Is Dangerous But Nothing’s Surprising, Body Type deliver.
