Sydney indie-folk darlings Tin Sparrow have had a whirlwind year with back-to-back tours supporting Matt Corby and a mammoth 29 dates with Boy & Bear. With two months off the road, the group are gearing up again with an impending single and a short run of east coast headline dates.
Band members Matt Amery, Mark Piccles, Dean McLeod and Sonja Van Hummel are armed with a selection of killer new tracks including their yet-to-be-titled new single, which will make its first public outing at their BigSound performance at Mustang Bar, on Thursday 13 September
Tin Sparrow’s October dates will showcase new sounds that the band have been experimenting with. A followup EP is due for release in early 2013.
“Ive always been inspired by Australia’s great history of singer-songwriters, so I guess while that voice remains pretty central to Tin Sparrow songs, with our new stuff we’re really hoping to take people on a journey, triggering a physical reaction with each of our songs,” said Matt Amery, lead singer.
Tin Sparrow play Brisbane’s BIGSOUND Live on September 13, then breeze through Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne over three nights in October.
