Mal de Mer is a dynamic 5-piece Perth band that effortlessly glides between Funk, Indie, Soul, Pop and Jazz, blending them all together with an Australian twang; adding a flavour that isn’t commonly found in these genres. They are joined on the bill by Heathcote Blue, a solitary bedroom folk project for Boorloo-based songwriter Lyndon Blue, which expanded into a duo with sister Maddy Blue. They return after a few years hiatus with new members, a richer sound and a slew of new songs.
