Maxine Gillon withJack Mannix & Inaugural Sounds
Melbourne-based singer-songwriter Maxine Gillon has made a name for herself with her lush expansive songs that introject the energy and attitudes of the rich countercultural history of alternative music into a contemporary eclectic form, devoid of any genre constraints or limitations. Snappy beats, gutter intellectual lyricism, interlocking melodic layers & a complete dedication to the songwriting form.
Her third EP ‘Ultra Lounge' was released in late 2022 to critical acclaim. Across six tracks, it straddles a balance between driving and catchy rock numbers and more introspective ballads, retaining the same lush and layered instrumentation throughout. It was mixed and mastered by Wade Keighran (ELVIS (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), Wolf & Cub). It also features guest vocals from Jonnine Standish (HTRK , Jonnine).
Having grown up and cut her teeth in the Sydney music scene, she is returning for an intimate show with support from Jack Mannix & Inaugural Sounds at The Midnight Special in Newtown on July 20th. Tickets are available for $15 pre-sale and $20 on the door.
This event is taking place on land belonging to the Gadigal people of the Eora nation. The organisers and artists wish to pay their respects to elders past, present and emerging and to recognise that sovereignty has never been ceded.
“Maxine is an impressive artist, who draws on a vast array of influences and reimagines them for a contemporary audience. She fuses insightful and revealing lyrics with music that enthrals. I am sure that ‘Ultra Lounge’ will not disappoint.”
