Charm Of Finches (Melbourne) Album Launch Tour
+ Special Guests Breathing Underwater
Live in Concert at Pigeon Lane @ ONE88
Melbourne’s angelic sister folk duo, Charm of Finches, are touring their highly anticipated sophomore album ‘Your Company’. They will be launching it at Pigeon Lane on Saturday 21st December as part of their national album launch tour.
It has been three years since the duo released their highly praised 2016 debut album ‘Staring at the Starry Ceiling’. ‘Your Company’ has been born of a time of turbulence. Following the death of Ivy’s best friend at the age of 14, the sisters’ songwriting turned towards the theme of grief, longing and the celebration of those left behind. This genre-defying album is lush with the sisters’ spacious string arrangements (cello and violin they play themselves), other worldly piano, a folky banjo and compelling ethereal vocal harmonies.
“There’s also the simple beauty of family voices intertwining, with Charm of Finches’ Mabel & Ivy – and even their names seem perfectly anachronistic for the folk purity of their music – providing the harmonies for Sky Watching… that slightly mystical alternate reality, maybe owing something to Joanna Newsom and that ilk. Despite – or perhaps because of – their youth, the music they make is affecting and emotional.” — The Music
“Charm of Finches make gorgeous chamber pop…their harmonies are immaculate and stirring as they move through an honest and, well, charming lyric.” – Tone Deaf

+ Special Guests Breathing Underwater
Hailing from Katoomba in the Blue Mountains, NSW, vocal trio, Breathing Underwater, has been singing together quite literally since they were small children. Hardly surprising, since the group consists of Aurora Li, aged 16, her younger sister, Tessa McKay, 13, and their 13 year-old cousin, Magnus Blomquist.
Despite their youth, the three already have a string of performances behind them, including appearances at Katoomba Live and Local Festival, the Blue Mountains Winter Magic Festival, Narragunnawali Festival of Music and were featured artists at PULSE 2019 at the Sydney Opera House. Aurora Li’s lyrically perceptive songs have been described as ‘sophisticated beyond her years’ as she takes her audience on an emotional ride through the highs and lows of life through her eyes. Throw in Magnus, Tessa, some fresh arrangements and lush harmonies, and you have a show that always manages to hit the sweet spot.
As well as performing Aurora Li’s originals, the group enjoys an eclectic mix of pop, folk and alt country music, including Celtic-inspired, Bluegrass and some Dylan and Springsteen, and their own arrangements of contemporary artists such as Lorde, the Lumineers, Kacey Musgraves, the Paper Kites and more.
