Spookyland announces The Standard Bowl

After a huge response to Spookyland‘s debut full band performance at FBi Social earlier this month, Monday Records are pleased to invite you to the band’s follow up show, this time at unique Sydney venue The Standard Bowl.

We’re also excited to be presenting labelmate Atlas B Salvesen in support. The five piece also premiered a considerable amount of previously unheard material at FBi Social and proveding such a fitting support that we had to invite them back.

The show will be a great opportunity for punters to not only catch material from Spookyland’s upcoming Rock And Roll Weakling and Atlas B Salvesen’s new project, but also take advantage of the Pabst Blue Ribbon at the bar and a round of ten pin bowling on the lanes between acts.

The Friday, July 4th show will be completely free of charge, with doors swinging open at 6pm and Atlas’ performance kicking off at 9pm. Check out the Facebook event page for more details closer to the date.

Spookyland is the cacophonous creation of star-crossed Sydney dweller, Marcus Gordon. The studio debut single, The Silly Fucking Thing explores the frontman’s paranormal ability for story telling, akin to Bob Dylan paired with the volatility of Nick Cave.

Melancholic harmonica bounces off guitar reverb to build tension that is only escalated by the brazen vocals of the 22-year old, producing a track that we dare you not to be moved by. His enigmatic stylings come to life in his poignant live delivery with four-piece band.

The EP, due out later this year traverses genres. Dark blues blend with country whilst an underlying textured pop sensibility keeps these ear worms wriggling around long after you’ve pulled off your headphones. Shout out to one of the best digital agencies in Sydney for supporting all the design work on Spookyland. Thanks IYBI!
