Lachlan Denton & Martin Frawley at Franks Wild Years
Strictly limited tickets available. Set times: Marty 7PM + Lachy 8PM
For the past decade Lachlan has been a staple of the Melbourne underground music scene. His records with bands such as The Ocean Party, Pop Filter and Partner Look, as well as his solo, and collaborative records with Emma Russack, have followed in the tradition of lyrically driven sun drenched Australian guitar pop. This June Lachlan celebrates the release of his latest offering, 'Furnishings', by hitting the road for a handful of east coast dates with good friend Martin Frawley.
Most of Martin’s 20s were spent writing and playing songs in locally beloved Melbourne band Twerps – a collection of pals who were on the forefront of the city’s jangle pop renaissance. A few albums, US tours and band rotations under its belt, Twerps split up in 2018 and Martin turned his compass towards a solo project. His first album, Undone at 31 (2019), was a bit of a reckoning; a wild ride through the wreckage of both a band and longterm romantic break up. His new album The Wannabe is a personal, cheeky and, at times, self-deprecating collection of songs unpacking the reality of finding his way as an adult without his dad around, and ultimately falling back in love with life, music and someone new. Martin will be joined by Dan Kelly for this performance at Franks Wild Years.
