Live on the
Having a ‘connection’ or an unspoken language is often a loosely slathered platitude in the music industry. In reality the notion of a musical affinity is a rarity that takes hours of rehearsals, years of gigs, and a deep understanding of the people you are making creating with. Over their ten years of playing together, Sydney three-piece Narla have undeniably achieved this magical level of fluency - and they have the record to prove it.
Till The Weather Changes is the culmination of hours and hours of exploration into the far reaches of prog, psychedelia, rock and back again. It’s 42 minutes of raw, volatile, and at times soaring, musicianship that was all recorded completely live.
First meeting in high school North West of Sydney, vocalist/guitarist Jack Millar, guitarist Nick Savvas and drummer Clayton Allen were brought together through an obsession with riff-heavy rock and roll, performing together for the first time as teenagers at a local pub in the Hawkesbury region. Fast forward seven years, a debut EP, a move to the city, degrees in classical and jazz at the Conservatorium, a couple hundred shows across the country, and Narla is selling out venues around town.
They've built a reputation among musos and punters as a powerful live force, with a show that twists and turns, leading onlookers on a ride through trenches of hypnotic grooves and peaks of wailing guitars. Joining them for this performance on our Golden Stage is Heavy Freedom.
