We Are Twenty
Time Out says
Hear Megan Washington, Electric Fields and more at this massive night of music
The City Recital Hall is turning 20, and to celebrate they’re inviting some superb Aussie music makers to get the party started. The concert is being curated by Aria Award-winning artist Megan Washington, who will also pepper the show with her own brand of boppy pop with soulful vocals.
The ‘Sunday Best’ singer has invited Indigenous-led electro-soul duo Electric Fields to collaborate at the concert. The pair create mesmerising, danceable tracks, with vocalist Zaachariaha Fielding singing in Pitjantjatjara, Yankunytjatjara and English while Michael Ross produces and freaks out on the keys. We’ll be listening out for hits like the synthy ‘Shade Away’ and the 2019 ‘2000 and Whatever’, which is filled with incredible harmonies and hooks.
Pianist Luke Howard will be mixing up the pop party with his classically-focused pieces, which will allow for a gentle reprieve from the more energetic performances. Then we’ll get another dose of classical music forms with Topology. This Brisbane-based group has been creating contemporary symphonies filled with theatrics, soaring strings and and energetic piano rhythms.
This big evening of music will arrive at City Recital Hall on Wednesday, October 8.
