The Slingers 'Sentimentalism' Album Tour @ Tanswells
The Slingers have cemented themselves as one of the most unique bands of the contemporary Australian underground/alternative scene. To celebrate the long-awaited release of their debut full-length LP Sentimentalism, due out July 7 via Flightless Records, they embark on their biggest tour yet, bringing their impassioned live performance to Tanswells Hotel. The Slingers have sought through their music to balance and synthesise a number of oppositional artistic forces: lyrics that are both tongue-in-cheek and haltingly sincere, live energy that borrows simultaneously from Elvis and Angel Olsen, and a sound that is as comfortable producing outlaw country as it is exploring drum machines and synthesisers.
Supporting on the night will be Beechworth's own Grommett Lloyd.
