We Lost the Sea + Solkyri + Sonori At Hotel Gearin, Katoomba Blue Mountains.

A huge night of Post Rock awesomeness is coming to the Blue Mountains!

We Lost The Sea are a cinematic instrumental band from Sydney, incorporating elements that hold up to the likes of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Cult Of Luna, Mogwai and Sigur Ros.

The band formed in 2007 and released their first album ‘Crimea’ in 2010, and their second album ‘The Quietest Place on Earth’ in 2012.

“We Lost The Sea were the absolute highlights of the night. A statement so bold wouldn’t generally come so early in a review, usually electing to lull the reader into some sort of suspense before finally reasoning that the support act ultimately trumped the headliner. Too bad. This band was really exciting.” –

“In terms of technicality and songwriting, this album is an undisputed winner. The usage of three guitars has been perfect to the core, yet the bass and drums were never underused. These mind blowing artists have devoted three years of their time to create something that is so variant from their usual style and yet it has induced a tsunami of emotions oozing out of every pore of my soul.” – Post-Rock Essentials

Solkyri are a post rock band from Sydney. Combining subtle ambient textures, crushing distortions and pulsating walls of sound, this band forms a beautiful yet haunting brand of captivating instrumental rock music.

After touring Europe in early 2015, the band launched their latest record ‘SAD BOYS CLUB’ in Australia, to critical acclaim.

“Crescendos, chaos, cascading melodies, precision playing and some wonderfully timed handclaps. Nice Work.” – Four Stars, Richard Kingsmill, Triple J

“The eight-minute-long ‘I felt Unsafe, I Felt At Home’ is a wonderful example of a building instrumental narrative – these guys are masters of their craft.” – Four Stars, The Music

“Solkyri have finally broken into full flight with this wonderfully absorbing, moody and moving album.” – Arctic Drones

What do you get when you cross a classically trained cello player, a post-rock guru, and an electronic junkie? Sonori – the new audio outfit of three unlikely Blue Mountains composers.
Using cello, guitar, keyboards and classic analogue drum machines like the 303, 808 and 909, their vision is to create layered sonic journeys. Their inspiration comes from the likes of Hans Zimmer, Philip Glass, Sigur Ros, Nathan Fake, Hardfloor and Laurent Garnier.

In a short period of time the band have generated a buzz in the local community, following a successful debut gig at the Katoomba Roller Derby and a set at the 2015 Winter Magic Festival, on the Baroque Room’s ‘Elektronica Stage’. The band followed this up by dressing as aliens and playing for the sweaty, pulsating masses at Katoomba’s Station Bar for the ‘Locomotion’ event.
They are currently working on their debut EP.

“Showing off a sound unlike any around, Sonori’s psychedelic mix of experimental electronic, cello and rock has found the band appearing at some high profile upper-Mountains events of late. They were a highlight of the Winter Magic’s Baroque line-up, as well as swelling the atmosphere during a recent Roller Derby bout.” – The Haze magazine

“Just an incredible sound. Wicked electronic beats effortlessly blending old and new. This is Cinematic orchestral experimental journey music. Post rock you can dance to…” – Emma Rowan -Kelly Photography
