Matt Amery of Sydney wonder-group Tin Sparrow joined me last week on The Walk of Shame, sharing new tracks form the upcoming EP, ahead of the tour which starts this week: The Brass Monkey in Crunulla has the first show this Wednesday 29th June before reaching the Vangaurd on Friday 1st July and onto Brisbane thereafter.
All shows are supported by the lovely sounds of Charlie Mayfair, one of the upcoming acts to watch for 2011. Together with headliners Tin Sparrow the night looks set to be a formidable folk frenzy with the later blowing away crowds at the recent FBi Social gig a few weeks back! As first act on stage that night Tin Sparrow held their own against Husky and The Fall, that night, to the point where many wondered if they were about to upstage the other acts.
Chatting with Matt you could really grab the sense of anticipation, excitement and trepidation about what the future will hold for Tin Sparrow now that can finally promote a full EP. Their sound is unmistakeably indie folk, reinforced with great big textures and a range that can seem them flow from spaghetti western to acoustic folk and back again without sounding forced or disjointed.
Matt joined me for the last quarter of the show, below is a round up of what went down… Don’t panic the dodgy porno music that is too loud in the background soon ends. For the real thing get to The Vangaurd this Friday!
