Mama Kin Spender is a lightning bolt moment between two long-time friends, co-writers and mischief-makers – ARIA-nominated Mama Kin and producer Tommy Spender. It’s a stripped back duo of brooding guitars, primal drums and howling harmonies, illuminated for this show by four beautiful backing singers. Their songs rattle, roll and tremble, from block party to heart rending ballad, with a sound that is as raw as it is joyful.
Since the release of their album Golden Magnetic in February, Mama Kin Spender have been flat chat, cramming in a national album launch run amidst shows at festivals around the country. Fresh off the back of their USA, Canadian and Irish tours, they will be rounding off 2018 with an Australian tour that includes this stop for The Sound Doctor.
As if this wasn’t enough to get music fans excited, we’re also announcing that Mama Kin Spender will be supported by Melbourne queens of indie-noir Broads. Drawing from an era of highly performative crooners, Broads deliver haunting, narcotic and deceptively sweet songs laced with tongue-in-cheek criticism of the culture from which they stem.
