Underwards - Delve Album Launch Tour
Delve into Underwards
The full moon through trees and mist. Towering majestic cliffs above a quiet rural valley. A calm river winding through a rocky landscape. A swim in a tidal ocean pool. A muddy swamp, teeming with life. The effects that being in nature has upon our senses and our minds, and the stories and memories that places hold. This is what Underwards makes music about.
Led by award-winning trumpeter and composer Ellen Kirkwood, Underwards features some of Sydney’s most exciting, versatile and explorative musicians. Their music, like nature, combines beauty, mystery, colour and rhythm, but also leans into the ways humans experience nature; sometimes with wonder and joy, sometimes with awe or bewilderment, sometimes with melancholy. Their music is both composed and improvised, often blurring the line between the two.
Underwards’ performance in Canberra will be part of the launch tour of their characterful and eclectic debut album, “Delve” (Earshift Music). Across ten original and contrasting tracks, Kirkwood and her talented band mates show off their abundance of musical versatility, wit and expressivity.
