Two of Australia’s most exciting young composers are heading to FAC. Award-winning singer-songwriter Jack Carty and former Papa vs. Pretty bassist Gus Gardiner will embark on a highly anticipated Australian tour with string quartet this June, in support of their brand new collaborative album Hospital Hill – due for worldwide release 1 June.

Thematically, Hospital Hill explores the pull of nostalgia, the weight of time and the release of gratitude, delivered with the trademark honesty that has won Carty a dedicated following from Hobart to Hamburg.

Across the album, Gardiner’s clever string arrangements are perfection – lifting, colouring and embodying the waves of Carty’s expansive voice. It’s a coming together of poetry and playfulness, of vulnerability and cinematicity, of intricacy and intimacy.

Don’t miss this chance to see Jack Carty & Gus Gardiner perform Hospital Hill live with their string quartet in the unique and intimate surrounds of our Main Gallery.

The pair will be supported by local Perth dream pop duo Telete.
