+ ANNOUNCES MINI RESIDENCY AT THE TOTE
STARTING THIS WEEK!
A few weeks ago we were very excited to introduce you to the newest member of the little Our Golden Friend label family POPPONGENE. Today the beautiful babe from the hills of Belgrave Sophie Treloaraka POPPONGENE has some special things to share with the world. The first, comes in the form of a brand new music video for her very first single 'Do It Girl'.
Produced by incredibly talented visual collaborator and fellow Belgrave local Tobias Willis the video for 'Do It Girl' takes viewers to the hills and rainforests of Belgrave which form the creative inspiration for POPPONGENE's dreamy psychedelic soundscapes. Of the video Willis says "It's a detailed study on how light through autumn leaves affects the human psyche."
In the second instalment of exciting news from POPPONGENE, she will debut her live show brought together by a full 5 piece band for the very first time this week. POPPONGENE and pals are excited to announce their Mini Residency at The Tote in Melbourne for this Wednesday 22nd June and the following Wednesday 29th June.
POP 'N' PALS will be joined by an incredible array of Melbourne based talent in support of her very first live performances. This Wednesday will see Full Flower Moon Band (Babyshake solo set), Waterfall Person, & Field Maps filling support duties. Next Wednesday 29th of June will feature Leah Senior, Dannika & Chips Calipso.
POPPONGENE is the solo project of Melbourne based musician and artist Sophie Treloar, who also plays in Melbourne dream-pop outfit Sunbeam Sound Machine. Hailing from the beaches of Byron Bay and now residing in the the rainforest lined hills of Belgrave.
Described by Simon Winkler as an "absorbing psychedelic adventure", 'Do It Girl' is lifted from POPPONGENE's forthcoming EP (currently untitled) which will be released via Our Golden Friend later in 2016. The track was produced by Skube Burnell (808s and Greatest Hits), mixed by Simon Lam (Kllo, Ills & Nearly Oratorio) & mastered by Mikey Young (Eddy Current Surpression Ring, Total Control).
