Sweetie @ The Great Club, 11th Apr

“A Sweetie set is always less about the music they make and more about the mood they maintain – somehow the pace rarely picks up, but the pulse still races. Defiant, solid as a rooted oak, sinister and joyous all at the time, it’s rich and dense and poetic. It’s the art, stupid.” Gallery Learn […]

Sweetie – Punch The Shark

“Sweetie summon every ounce of swagger in the universe on their latest and use it to stomp all over your nice clean floors. It’s confident, it pushes the needles right up into the red, and it’s coming for you, ready or not 🦈”

Sweetie @ Wayward’s, 1st Apr

“There’s always so much going on in a Sweetie set, it’s hard to keep pace. The songwriting is so sharp and densely packed with detail it’s easy to miss that it’s also built to bamboozle you with joy and dancing at the same time. It’s a lot to process. The lungs are left empty and […]

The Buoys – I Want You

“The Buoys return to the fray with a hair-shaker for the ages, a track so full of vim it’s spilling over the sides and pooling on the floor. One of the best tracks they’ve written – and hoo yeah, that’s saying something 💃”

Sweetie @ Kelly’s On King, 21st Oct

“Sweetie play with such joy and vim it’s impossible not to get swept away, a tidal force of smiles and smarts. It’s art made into a dancefloor, a night out turned into a story, a life lived transformed into a song sung. Above all though, it’s the explosion of happiness, the sheer pleasure of telling […]

Sweetie @ Mary’s Underground, 6th May

“Sweetie are as ambitious as ever tonight, with a headline set to launch their oh-so-fine ‘Collision’ EP that features old ones, never-played new ones, and a whole bloody choir of Sydney ace faces. A fabulous band, poetic in their songwriting, capable of conjuring magic from the bare minimum then dropping fully-maxed out loon moments. Few […]

Sweetie @ HiWay Bikini, 1st Apr

“Sweetie continue to intrigue, a project in its youth yet with the quiet power and the understated intensity to grab hold and not let go. While we wait patiently for recorded material to eventually emerge there are still these shows – as occasionally dark and strange as life itself, but performed with joy and pleasure.”
