LucieT7pm doors, 8pm show

Wheogo Hill is the first song to be released from Lucie Thorne’s extraordinary new art/pop concept album Kitty & Frank. To celebrate the song’s release, Lucie Thorne is playing a select run of intimate shows throughout June, in duet with legendary drummer and her long-time collaborator Hamish Stuart.

Painting landscapes with dream-soaked synths, irresistible beats, poetry and pathos, with Kitty & Frank Thorne has woven an astonishing arc of vignettes to create songs which are at once timeless and utterly modern. Inhabiting a sonic world that calls to mind a meeting of David Bowie’s Blackstar and Kate Bush’s Hounds of Love, via Grimes and Alice Coltrane – Kitty & Frank tells a tale of Shakespearean proportions. All this at the hands of one of Australia’s finest song-poets who has ventured to triumphant new ground with staggering certitude.

“Thorne conjures a simple narrative flow that, like a Raymond Carver story, transforms everyday life into high art” (The Canberra Times)
