If you know anything at all about Australian music, of course, you already know who Adalita is. You know her from Magic Dirt, who for nearly two decades have been one of Australia’s most respected and influential bands. You may well have grown up with her music, watching it evolve from the freeform distortion-drenched darkness of the early ‘90s to the confident, poised rock’n’roll of ‘Girl’. Or you might be a new fan, just beginning to explore the work of one of Australia’s greatest contemporary bands.
“Minimal”, “beautiful”, “haunting”… They’re certainly all adjectives that apply to Adalita’s live pared back shows of authenticity, darkness and stunning vocals. Adalita returns to her hometown of Geelong, with her electric guitar and suitcase of songs in support of Casey.
