Here’s something cool, Melbourne’s Alex Watts is launching his debut album Another Step In Dark with a one-off art exhibition featuring ten talented local visual artists. Each interpreting a song from the album through painting, still animation or photography, head to Hugs & Kisses on August 20 to browse the artworks, buy one if you like and then watch Alex perform each song in full with a nine-piece band. Sounds fab.
Featured artists include Celeste Potter (Ouch! My Face), Ben Montero (Montero), Damian Cazaly (Blackchords), Cesar Rodrigues (Saatsuma), Kate Moon, Sacha Bryning, Tajette O’Halloran and Lucy McCallum. Given the record is “a song cycle that follows the arc of a relationship through courtship and betrayal to murderous revenge, touching on vintage pop, soul and indie rock along the way,” it looks like these ten talented people have plenty of material to work with.
Have a listen to album track Cool Change for a little taste, beautifully animated by featured artist Lucy McCallum, preorder the album now for an instant download of the track, and see ya at Hugs & Kisses on August 20:
