Ernest Ellis and Parades team up for co-headline tour  02 September 2010

They are two of the most lauded up-and-coming indie acts to hit Australia this year, and this October Ernest Ellis and Parades are joining forces for a major national tour.

It’s been an amazing year for Sydney songwriter, Ernest Ellis. His debut album ‘Hunting’ scored 5 star reviews, sold out headline shows and a slot on Splendour In The Grass. Recorded in a farmhouse in Orange, using unique recording techniques, ‘Hunting’ has been described as an “impeccable debut” (***** Rave Magazine), and a “masterpiece” (Drum Media Perth).  But it is in the live arena that these two acts really shine. Ernest Ellis’ haunting album takes on an entirely new dimension on stage, backed by a full rock band, the songs lift and build to towering crescendos.

“While the album recording hint at calm, space and introspection, Ellis & Co are having none of that, launching full voice into rollicking, drummed-up renditions [of the album tracks]… The mature and joyful live performance witnessed tonight hints at grander stages and rowdy crowds in the very near future.” JMag

Parades have had an equally dramatic rise after a national tour with Gomez and a slot at Homebake last year, their debut album ‘Foreign Tapes’ has received unanimous praise for it expansive, ambitious haze of pop harmonies, post rock guitars and electronic meanderings. “Bold, startling and awe-inspiring” is how The Brag describes their garage-produces debut, echoed by Mess & Noise’s “staggering album”.

"They executed the contrasts of their music; with a heavy drop into richly textured musical layers, to delicate ghostly vocals and melodies accompanied by minimal percussion. The level of intensity and energy of this 50-minute set was mind-blowing."  Fasterlouder.com.au

Be sure to get to the venue early. Each band is alternating headline spot each night so you never know who’ll be on first!
