Lower Plenty (members of Total Control, Dick Diver, Deaf Wish) share first single from ‘Sister Sister’ out on Bedroom Suck 11/18

Melbourne’s Lower Plenty are comprised of some of Australia’s most talented musicians. The quartet are typically Australian in that they seem to exist on borrowed members, drawing together musicians responsible for bands like Total Control, The UV Race, Deaf Wish, The Focus and Dick Diver. Unlike the harsh and direct approach of many of these outfits, Lower Plenty take the circular route, preferring to dwell in isolation and self-reflection, the result being some truly astonishing home recordings.

Lower Plenty’s Daniel Twomey (percussion), Jensen Tjhung (guitar + vocal), Sarah Heyward (percussion + vocal) and Al Montfort (guitar + vocal) all hail from various areas in and around Melbourne, a city known for it’s ability to attract cultural expatriates from around the country, often leaving the rest of the continent devoid of activity. It’s an incestuous town – communities are tight; bands share members, record in home-made studios, and often play to packed venues or back-alley warehouses alike.

Lower Plenty meet rarely, in the down time between tours or jobs. Rumor has it they gather around a kitchen table, write and record on the spot, and call it quits for another year – heading home to pick up their other projects. As a result, their records take on a quality of restlessness. Songs enter the room, stir around, and depart just as suddenly, leaving the listener with a sense of something lost. It is this impact that has kept Lower Plenty active. Listeners demand it; they are a crowd favorite, and if word of a rare Lower Plenty gig gets around, artists and musicians from all corners of the city will be there, waiting patiently.

Stay tuned for U.S. live dates in support of their forthcoming album Sister Sister, out November 18 on Bedroom Suck – home to other artists such as Scott & Charlene’s Wedding, Boomgates, Terrible Truths and are distributed in the U.S. via Omnian Music Group (Captured Tracks, 2MR, Flying Nun).
