Our golden haired honey POPPONGENE is excited to share her video for 'Belgravey'! Produced by Tobias Willis A.K.A KEWL, the video is POPPPONGENE's love-letter to the leafy life she lived in Belgrave with her beautiful ginger cat Monty, her bff Toby and her partner Lochy . It's a handy-cam documentation of their secluded and slow hills life and the process of settling back into city life. 

“The 'Belgravey' clip is like a little time capsule for me. It documents the beautiful hills life of myself, Loch, Toby and Monty - and the process of packing up and moving back to the big smoke. It's basically dad-cam footage of whatever was going on around us at the time. Oh also, we're UFO hunters... " - Poppongene (Sophie Treloar)

 

POPPONGENE is also very excited to announce their headline show at The Grace Darling Hotel on Wednesday the 9th of August with Melbourne's dreamy Culte and 808s and Greatest Hits! With FREE ENTRY and vibes vibes vibes, why the heck wouldn't you treat yourself? 

POPPONGENE RELEASES NEW SINGLE - 'ESKY' + ANNOUNCES MELBOURNE SINGLE LAUNCH

 

Our favourite beautiful babe from the the hills POPPONGENE is excited to share her brand new single 'Esky' with the world today! 'Esky' is the third single release following her dreamy single 'Belgravey' and features on a very special limited edition 7" vinyl which is available for order via bandcamp right now.

POPPONGENE LAUNCH ESKY AT THE FITZROY PINNACLE ON MAY 17TH

"I wrote this song last year when spring was slowly creeping in, but up in the hills we’d still get a serious frostiness in the mornings and evenings. I had this real winter hangover, my house felt a damp and I was sick of the daily grey skies. Essentially Esky is about wanting to spend quality soul-warming time at the beach and being in the sunshine with your mates. I just love the fertile, can-do attitude that summer brings on, so I guess it’s just about the ~summer vibe~ and all that it brings." -Poppongene (Sophie Treloar)

JADE IMAGINE TO FEATURE ON MILK! RECORDS/BEDROOM SUCK 'SPLIT SINGLES CLUB' RELEASE

 

Milk! Records and Bedroom Suck have just announced their limited run of Split 7" singles: the two labels have teamed up to put out a limited run of singles that will house a favourite band from each roster, and OGF's own Jade Imagine is first up!

From Bedroom Suck/Milk:

Split Singles Club is a limited-edition collection of 7-inch vinyl, each pairing a track from one of Milk!’s favourite Australian artists on one side, with one of Bedroom Suck’s on the other. The idea – spearheaded by Bedroom Suck director Joe Alexander and Milk! co-founder Jen Cloher – was born out of the close familial dynamic each label has with their artists and their local communities. “We wanted to develop a project that encapsulated this family idea and also extended a hand to others,” Joe says. A significant motivating factor in the project, Jen adds, is highlighting the uniquely generous spirit of Melbourne’s music scene, one that’s earning a growing awareness around the world: "I think Split Singles Club is a great reflection of how uncompetitive and collaborative we are in this town.”

GABRIELLA COHEN SIGNS TO CAPTURED TRACKS

 

LABEL TO REISSUE DEBUT ALBUM FULL CLOSURE AND NO DETAILS ON FRIDAY 3RD MARCH 2017

ALSO PLAYING SXSW AND VIDA FESTIVAL (SPAIN)

Gabriella Cohen is excited to announce that she has signed to Brooklyn based label Captured Tracks for a worldwide deal excluding Australia and New Zealand where she will remain on Dot Dash / Remote Control Records. The Australia-based Cohen released her debut album, Full Closure And No Details, in the Spring of 2016 and the label will be reissuing the LP on March 3, 2017.

Full Closure And No Details drew the attention of Rookie Magazine who calls Cohen a "modern psychedelic prophet who layers drawling vocals, heartache, and healing over a background of Velvet Underground-esque guitar distortion." Elle Magazine placed the album's single 'Sever the Walls' in their 'top tracks of October' list and Brooklyn Vegan said Full Closure And No Details is "an LP full of warm, smokey guitar pop." Most recently Gabriella was included in an NPR piece on the music scene in Melbourne which you can read here

Cohen is scheduled to play this year's SXSW - show details forthcoming - and is currently working on the follow up to Full Closure And No Details inside a farmhouse in Seymour (regional Victoria). When Gabriella leaves the shores of Australia to head to the USA in March she will embark on a worldwide tour which will see her play VIda Festival (Spain) as well more tour and festival dates to be announced soon.

Today Cohen is also happy to share the video for the album track "Downtown" which you can watch here:

JESS RIBEIRO ANNOUNCES FEBRUARY PARLOUR TOUR

 

Melbourne's Jess Ribeiro is excited to announce that she will be bringing her solo songs to living rooms and backyards across Australia. Presented by the much-loved Parlour Gigs, Jess is available to book to play an intimate solo set for you and yours, private and invite-only, from February 2-26, in South AustraliaVictoria,  New South Wales and Queensland.

Jess Ribeiro’s songs are cinematic in scope: it’s music that travels, across deserts like a Western, through city streets like Film Noir. Narrative and poetic, Ribeiro’s lyrics are rhythmic and evocative, conjuring images that are dimly-lit, but nonetheless electric. Rendered in the stunning intimacy of a living-room or backyard show, these songs will feel all the more immediate and affecting.

Jess’s debut album Kill It Yourself (August 2015, Barely Dressed/Remote Control) was produced by Mick Harvey, a founding member of The Birthday Party and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, whose production for PJ Harvey drew Ribeiro’s attention and admiration.

Preparing to record the follow up to Kill It YourselfJess will be playing new songs from her upcoming album, alongside favourites from previous releases. These intimate will be the final opportunity to see Jess play in Australia before she disappears overseas to record.

Our favourite beautiful babe from the hills POPPONGENE is excited to share the news that she'll be holding fort upstairs at The Gasometer Hotel in Melbourne for a residency in the month of January 2017. Every Wednesday in January, POPPONGENE will bring her brand of devotional dream-pop to The Gaso Upstairs. The solo project of artist and musician Sophie Treloar (also of Melbourne outfit Sunbeam Sound Machine) POPPONGENE’s music is laconic and hypnotic, sun-soaked and lush, recalling the rainforests that surround her Belgrave home, and the beaches of her native Byron Bay.

Debut single 'Do It Girl' is self-affirming and aspirational, described by 3RRR’s Simon Winkler as an “absorbing psychedelic adventure”. Along with the heavy-lidded new single 'Belgravey', these are the first tastes of POPPONGENE’s upcoming EP, to be released in 2017. To usher in the new year, POPPONGENE and her band will soundtrack midsummer Wednesday nights, accompanied each week by a host of Melbourne’s finest friends, including label-mates 808s and Greatest Hits and Melbourne mainstays Great Outdoors, Way Dynamic, Doona Waves, Real Feelings, Baby Blue, The Baudlaires & Ali E all equipped to turn the Gaso into an upstairs oasis.

POPPONGENE's debut 7" double A-side vinyl featuring 'Do It Girl' & 'Belgravey' is available for pre-order via Bandcamp right now.

In other exciting news for POPPONGENE she has been announced as the opening support for Weyes Blood, the songwriting project of California's Natalie Mering, who channels the uneasy listening vibes of the lost voices of Laurel Canyon. Weyes Blood will play her only Melbourne headline show while in Australia for the Sugar Mountain Festival at the Northcote Social Club on Friday 20th January with support from the incredible Lost Animal & our girl POPPONGENE.
