Ross McLennan & The New World

  • Bluestone Theatre 28 Hutton Street Kyneton (map)

One of Australian indie rock’s quiet achievers, Ross McLennan is revered for his rare and riveting live performances. Showcasing the evocative compositions from his acclaimed solo works, The Night’s Deeds Are Vapour, Sympathy For The New World and Hits From The Brittle Building — and quite possibly a fondly remembered Snout classic or two — Ross will be accompanied by his ensemble of strings, woodwind and a choir for a lush, simply breathtaking performance. Described by Rolling Stone as a “black-clad Burt Bacharach”, Ross creates intriguing daydream sequences in his music whilst engaging deeply with the most vexed and heartbreaking issues of our time. Aptly described as a “chamber rock auteur” and a “one man pop factory”, not to mention “pure unadulterated genius”, Ross has earned the highest accolades for his solo career since disbanding Snout, one of a few Australian indie pop bands from the 1990s who are remembered both for their popularity and their creative depth.

Ross McLennan performs at the Kyneton Music Festival with his 11-piece ensemble The New World
