Event Details

Ethereal layers of spacious, soul-drenched indie-pop – that is the craft of singer-songwriter BANFF, aka Benjamin Forbes. The former front-man of Brisbane group LITTLE CASINO stepped away from the band environment mid-2014 with a thirst to explore new songwriting ground, something he has achieved in spades since releasing singles Stand In Line and The Great Unknown. And Australia has listened.

Great rotation across Triple J and community radio Australia-wide. 140,000 plays on Soundcloud for Stand In Line, half of which were in the first week of release. Triple J Unearthed feature artist. Plaudits and praise from industry luminaries. Sold-out shows in Brisbane and throughout Australia, both as a headliner and in support of acts such as Mosman Alder and Montaigne. Lots of love from music's harshest critics, the blogosphere. BANFF is making all the right noises.

Late last year, Forbes packed his bags and flew south to collaborate with Tom Scary (Big Scary / #1 Dad's Tom Iansek) at Big Scary's Mixed Business studio in Melbourne. The result is BANFF's debut EP, Future Self, which will be released June 19.Bolstered by the exceptional response to his first foray into solo territory, BANFF will now look firmly to the future. Forbes has nabbed the support slot for Japanese Wallpaper's Brisbane show in July, and an EP launch and tour scheduled for July/August will support the release of Future Self. A confident but delicate mix of tracks, "Future Self" is sure to reveal BANFF as a rising new talent and one to watch in 2015.
