Go to The New Pornographers

Friday 28 February 2020 7.30pm

Canadian supergroup, The New Pornographers are coming to Canberra for the first time!

The eight-piece, one of the few bands to employ multiple lead vocalists (a province usually left to obscure outfits like The Beatles), are remarkably intact given the status and commitments of their members. Featuring an incredible line-up including — A.C. Newman, Neko Case, Kathryn Calder, Todd Fancey, Blaine Thurier, John Collins, Joe Seiders and Simi Stone — The New Pornographers are embarking on an Australian tour in support of their brand new record In The Morse Code Of Brake Lights.

The album is more of what The New Pornographers do best: “pure, blissfully irresistible power-pop” (NPR Music).

While lyrically reflecting the political and climatic unease of the times there’s still those sugar rush choruses, delicious bass lines and sheer upbeat glee. Who could imagine bliss and unease could so easily cohabitate? An unmissable gig by this great pop collective.
