Go to Seeker Lover Keeper

Friday 6 September 2019 8pm

Australian indie rock supergroup SEEKER LOVER KEEPER, with Sarah Blasko, Sally Seltmann and Holly Throsby are uniting once again for a national tour. Seeker Lover Keeper originated, as many things do, from a conversation at a pub. In 2007, Sarah and Holly went to see Sally play a show in Sydney, and the three ended up at the Townie in Newtown after, drinking and talking well into the night. They were such big fans of each other’s music and, as they quickly discovered, they enjoyed each other’s company too. At some point during the night a plan arose: wouldn’t it be fun to tour together sometime? They all agreed that it would. And, in the coming months, over emails, the notion of a joint-tour evolved into something different. Sally suggested they should start a band. She even had a name in mind: Seeker Lover Keeper. Without hesitation, Sarah and Holly said yes. They recorded their self-titled debut in New York, with Jim White (Dirty Three) on drums and Victor Van Vugt (PJ Harvey, Nick Cave) engineering. The record came out in 2011: it debuted at #3 on the ARIA chart and achieved gold accreditation. A second Seeker Lover Keeper album was sometimes discussed, but for a long time it was an idea floating in the background of three busy lives. It wasn’t until 2016 that they decided to come together again. But this time they decided to do things differently: they would write songs together. They met one evening a week during winter, at a studio Holly was renting in Sydenham, right under the flight path. It was there that the first song for their new record, ‘Superstar’, was written; and that the first half of the album began to take shape. Wild Seeds, out Friday 9 August 2019, is the long-awaited follow-up to their 2011 self-titled debut album. Please be aware due to the nature of the show, some patrons may stand during the performance.

Australian indie rock supergroup SEEKER LOVER KEEPER, with Sarah Blasko, Sally Seltmann and Holly Throsby are uniting once again for a national tour.

Seeker Lover Keeper originated, as many things do, from a conversation at a pub. In 2007, Sarah and Holly went to see Sally play a show in Sydney, and the three ended up at the Townie in Newtown after, drinking and talking well into the night. They were such big fans of each other’s music and, as they quickly discovered, they enjoyed each other’s company too. At some point during the night a plan arose: wouldn’t it be fun to tour together sometime?

They all agreed that it would. And, in the coming months, over emails, the notion of a joint-tour evolved into something different. Sally suggested they should start a band. She even had a name in mind: Seeker Lover Keeper. Without hesitation, Sarah and Holly said yes.

They recorded their self-titled debut in New York, with Jim White (Dirty Three) on drums and Victor Van Vugt (PJ Harvey, Nick Cave) engineering. The record came out in 2011: it debuted at #3 on the ARIA chart and achieved gold accreditation.

A second Seeker Lover Keeper album was sometimes discussed, but for a long time it was an idea floating in the background of three busy lives. It wasn’t until 2016 that they decided to come together again. But this time they decided to do things differently: they would write songs together. They met one evening a week during winter, at a studio Holly was renting in Sydenham, right under the flight path. It was there that the first song for their new record, ‘Superstar’, was written; and that the first half of the album began to take shape.

Wild Seeds, out Friday 9 August 2019, is the long-awaited follow-up to their 2011 self-titled debut album.

Please be aware due to the nature of the show, some patrons may stand during the performance.
