The Orbweavers 'New Moon / Silver Moon' Album Launch

Next date: Sunday, 28 July 2024 | 04:00 PM to 06:00 PM

A man and a woman both with dark hair stand side by side to one another. They both wear dark clothing that covers they arms. A turquoise hue sits over the image.

Presented by Darebin Arts and Mistletone

New Moon /Silver Moon responds to the many layered histories of two places: Narrm / Melbourne, and Broken Hill on Wilyakali Country, and surrounding Barkindji Country. These songs explore waterways, ecosystems and industrial history, infused with personal reflections from the present. The Orbweavers are Marita Dyson & Stuart Flanagan, with Paddy Mann (bass), Jen Sholakis (drums), Biddy Connor (viola), Laura Hertaeg (trumpet).

“The mists of Broken Hill’s spring rain, and the desert flowers that bloom with it, come to life on the Orbweavers’ dreamy, textural new song. It’s all about the details – Marita Dyson’s gentle vocals are complemented by a luscious blend of chorals, harp and strings, and the lyrics evoke great respect for the land while also communicating a personal story. This sumptuous single is the first taste of the Melbourne band’s upcoming album – their first since 2017." - Giselle Au-Nhien Nguyen (The Guardian)
