with OBSCURA HAIL
Support just announced - "OBSCURA HAIL"!
Ditching the chaos of the clubs for the calm of some cosy venues, Kele Okereke announces a string of intimate Australian shows in support of his latest solo album Fatherland.
Produced in response to the birth of his first daughter Savannah and reflecting several significant life changes, Fatherland (Okereke’s third solo work after 2010’s The Boxer and 2014’s Trick) has been met with luminous critical acclaim and will set a reverent tone for these unique performances in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.
Legendary for dissecting the tumult of modern life through his much-loved back catalogue, the Bloc Party frontman has taken a step back from the bright lights and moved into some more hushed and delicate atmospheres this time around.
A work of rare beauty and contrast, Fatherland sees Okereke guiding us through explorations of new responsibilities, established relationships and cultural identity by employing delicate folk, sumptuous soul and even a touch of cabaret for good measure. Cuts like Streets Been Talkin’ and Yemaya recall the work of Joni Mitchell or Elliot Smith in their splendid instrumentation.
