“For the inconvenience of having masses moving to and from a stage after a set, there was the benefit of reducing the number of fans who would get to a stage well in advance to see a certain performance, thus denying others the opportunity to be at the front for an earlier performing artist. The perfect example of this were the final two performers on the Dean Turner stage, Violent Soho and CHVRCHES, with the overlay in fans between the two groups being small at best.
Violent Soho’s reputation as a fantastic live band preceded them as the sun set over Melbourne, and the Aussie rock outfit certainly did not disappoint, flying through a 45 minute set that included their latest single “Viceroy”, and was capped off with massive hit “Covered in Chrome”. Matching the huge applause for the Australians’ finale was that for the entrance of Scottish electronic three-piece CHVRCHES, one of the biggest names on the bill and understandably so, given the quality of their performance.” – AU Review
ABOUT THE PROJECT
I’ve been covering Violent Soho work on their upcoming album, titled Waco. The photos in this project were taken while they recorded their album at The Shed in Brisbane, filmed their film clip for ‘Like Soda’ at The Bardon Bowls Club, toured ‘Like Soda’ in Australia, signed WACO albums on its release, played around the country on Laneway Festival, and toured the album around Australia with Dune Rats and DZ Deathrays.
