‘Rare Child’ at Sunrise

2016-12-23_0033

As the sun began to rise we wandered from place to place accompanied by the music of ‘Rare Child’ with their double bass, guitar and violin. So surreal, so beautiful.

Drawing together disparate influences from Neko Case to Jeff Lang to The Chieftains, Rare Child’s melt-your-face woodsy folk fascinates and delights audiences.

Guitarist Lachlan Heycox and violin/vocalist Erin Heycox both grew up in rural Australia steeped in bush-bands and balladeers. They met double-bassist Lachlan Gordon stringing up sound at a now defunct Hoddle Street pub.

Rare Child’s songs of pet magpies and cautionary tales of venture capitalists wittily observe and chronicle their journey from the bush to the city in their debut EP ‘Big Smoke’.

Those flies!
