This Way North[VIC]
Punchy and left of centre, but with a universally appealing groove and melody, This Way North’s live shows are powerful. Cat brings solid groove based, dynamic power drumming, while Leisha sways with swampy slide guitar, slimmed down soul vocals and compelling alt-pop melodies. Sometimes likened to The Black Keys, Tame Impala and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, their unique musical connection creates an explosive sound that’s rarely realised by just two artists on stage. Audiences are drawn in by the powerful performances of these two seasoned musicians. The moment This Way North embrace the stage the audience engage – that’s just how it is. The duo’s debut EP featured singles ‘Pretty Much’ and ‘Don’t You Fly’ with official clips directed by Agostino Soldati. Recorded with producer Shane O’Mara (Tim Rogers, The Audreys, Lisa Miller) at Yikesville studio in Yarraville, mastered at Studios 301. The EP WAS released in 2016 to rave reviews. groovy, swampy, dancey roots pop
