Retiree [Rhythm Section International] live show
Retiree are three Australians responsible for some strongly rhythmic and emotional music. We connected with them through Bradley Zero’s Rhythm Section International label (who run some of the best DJ parties anywhere).
“a whole lot of criss-crossing rhythm” – The FADER
“swirling synth flourishes, languid wistful vocals and strut- ting drum machine funk” – The 405.
Retiree are not a straight up dance band though. Their new album explores the theme of “house or home” and what that means in present day Australia for different people. They journey from an aboriginal tent embassy on the south coast of New South Wales, a retirement village, a one room flat in Ringwood and a sleepless 17 hour stop over in Malaysia.
Their live set throws all their keyboards, guitar pedals and woodblocks on stage, resulting in a fascinating arrangement of sounds that carry the lyrical content superbly.Buy Tickets
