Melbourne queens of indie-noir Kelly Day and Jane Hendry are Broads. Haunting, narcotic and deceptively sweet, their songs are laced with acerbic criticism of the culture from which they stem. Their debut release Vacancy (2017) — feature album on both TripleRRR and PBS FM — was described by theMusic as "a mellifluous collection of songs utterly drenched in enticing melodies and harmonies ... a simply gorgeous, often haunting, always sublime inaugural full-length outing".
With their sophomore album looming in early 2019, Broads have developed a sound which is fiercely feminine — a strong reflection of personal and universal experiences from two powerful voices reinforced by a guitar-driven, Lynchian five-piece band.
They'll be joined on our Golden Stage by Sydney's own Elizabeth Fader. After releasing her debut single Video Shoot in August 2017, Hughes scored supports with Julien Baker, Oh Pep!, Holly Throsby and Julia Jacklin. She has received Triple J, FBi and 2Ser airplay. In 2016, Happy Magazine named her as one of Australia's 20 guitarists to watch, alongside Stu Mackenzie and Nai Palm.
