“...a powerful energy that both leaves the audience breathless..." Arts Hub review of The Toff In Town, (Melbourne). With special guest: SHE SAID ZED
Conway & Zygier explore the breadth of sound that can be extracted from acoustic instruments and vocals. The sound is endlessly inventive within the bounds of real. Their new album “Stories Of Ghosts” is an examination of Old Testament themes, of existential uncertainty in the face of unchanging beliefs and coming to terms with the endless trade off that life is full of – loss leavened with happiness, tragedy with humour and sadness with joy. Building on the acoustic instrumentation of 2010’s Half Man Half Woman, Stories Of Ghosts adds layers of wood, strings & air, creating a sound that veers from delicate & melancholy to savage & fierce.
Stories Of Ghosts is about the stuff that make people furious, miserable, wistful, amused, curious and even occasionally happy. Sonically the songs explore the breadth of sound that can be extracted from acoustic instruments and vocals.
“There was hardly a whisper to be heard from the crowd during any of the songs. A rare delight at concerts these days…”
