Performing their biggest headline shows in Australia and New Zealand to date, Houston, Texas psych-funk auteurs Khruangbin will bring their First Class Tour to Fremantle Arts Centre’s South Lawn on Wednesday 23 November.
Last in Australia in 2019, the acclaimed three-piece exist in their own orbit, their legendary live show – a mixtape of surf-rock cool, dubby disco and worldly funk – is held down by the steady hand of drummer Donald Ray ‘DJ’ Johnson Jr, virtuosic guitarist Mark Speer, and enigmatic bassist Laura ‘Leezy’ Lee.
Live on stage Khruangbin’s electric range is performed with impeccable style, their sound rooted in globetrotting. With three studio albums to date – debut The Universe Smiles Upon You, 2018’s Con Todo El Mundo, and 2020’s Mordechai – tracks such as ‘Dern Kala’ , ‘Maria También’ and ‘People Everywhere (Still Alive)’ have become live anthems for their many fans, no mean feat for a largely instrumental group. 2021’s Mordechai Remixes featured re-imaginings by Kadhja Bonet, Soul Clap, Quantic, Harvey Sutherland, and more.
Sonic instrumental world-builders, Khruangbin’s sound is meticulously constructed and universally adored. Praised by The New York Times, Billboard, Los Angeles Times, FADER and more, they regularly sell-out multiple nights at iconic venues worldwide – from The Greek in Los Angeles to London’s O2 Academy Brixton – possessing a live show not to be missed.
Melbourne’s favourite groove cosmonauts Mildlife will join the bill as special guests.
