With wistful, melodic charm and poetic lyricism, burgeoning new-folk ensemble Giffen return to Django!
Since the band’s formation in 2016 by seasoned singer/songwriter Marie Le Brun and long time musical partner, accordionist Luke Sweeting, Giffen have been winning the affections of folk and country music lovers alike with their nostalgic reflections of youth and family, enhanced by their lush instrumentation which includes rich, multi-layer harmonies, mandolin, double bass and beautifully placed percussion.

Bonnie’s sweet ethereal vocals sail over the polyrhythmic backgrounds created between her guitar, percussion and vocal loops. Her imaginative lyrics tell stories of treehouses, mice, birds, flying and video games.
Described as “dreamy experimental indie folk” and compared to artists such as Bjork and Joanna Newsom, Bonniesongs is creating a unique sound in the Sydney songwriting scene.
