Steve Kilbey : “Sydney Rococo” CD 23th November 2018 Golden Robot Records. Australia Pop/New Wave/ Country/ Rock band. This is with pleasure to receive this masterpiece that sends me back in time when musicians were creating artistic music out of the boundaries that got us all stuck into a box.
The fifties born artist who was in a band called The Church that tours the world and made many albums and still releasing great music. Is now releasing a masterpiece on his own not much different musically but being an art on every way possible. Like any artist he has written and composed on the side of his own band.
So this is was normal that all those had to come out some day. As a musicians, poet, painter… this album is just opening your mind like it did back in the late sixties to different atmospheres , letting your feelings to get punched and kicked to discover new dimensional worlds only your brain can absorbs and comprehend.
A pleasure for the sight and the ears, have a listen :
A beautiful auto portrait painting with colors and inviting you to take the journey with Steve Kilbey which you will if you listen to this album. A flight into decades of music creations with melodies, soft touch and full of emotions.
Eleven songs with influences ranging from David Bowie, The Pretenders, U2, R.E.M , The Bangles, Peter Gabriel, The Cure, Pink Floyd….lots of instruments such as violin and piano. Jump in you won’t regret it 100/100.
