Lewis Paton-Ryan will be AudioTechniks man on the ground at Chevron Lighthouse and here are his top four picks to look out for in the line up:
1. Briggs – Shepparton rapper Briggs is, by now, an Aussie icon. From releasing the incendiary ‘January 26′ under his A.B.Original project with the Funkoars’ Trials, to acting in the Australian indigenous superhero series Cleverman, Briggs is everywhere right now. I’ve caught him solo and as part of A.B.Original and I’m really excited for this show. Expect big loud energy.
2. Ngaiire – PNG-born Australian Future Soul songstress Ngaiire is a huge talent in a tiny package. Check out ‘Diggin’ from her 2016 album Blastoma for a total jam. Highly recommended and with the double headliner with Emma Donovan and the Putbacks this night will be huge. Expect deep driving soul.
3. Aldous Harding – Aldous has just released her incredible album ‘Designer’ which has been on repeat in my car for a while now. An artist that can deliver twee folk with conviction, she is at her best when her voice is a low and haunting rumble. See her live video of ‘Horizon, live at Whammy Bar’ on Youtube for a spine tingling example. Expect brooding reflection.
4. Craig David presents TS5 – Most know Craig David for his RnB commercial successes. This show hinges more-so on his garage roots but you’ll get a good taste of both. I’ve seen him twice in the last two years, once with a full band and once doing this show. On paper, it’s just a man DJing and singing but in my opinion this is the better of the two shows, recreating a garage aesthetic on the big stage. Expect dance floor fillers.
Tickets range from $39 to $69 with all booking and festival info available at www.perthfestival.com.au
