Givers / Portugal. The Man Australian Shows 2012 – Laneway Sideshows

Written by Brayden Darke on November 15, 2011

Givers and Portugal. The Man will bring their bright breed of psych-pop to Australia early next year for a series of co-headline shows, while appearing on the St Jerome’s Laneway Festival 2012 line-up. Sydney band Guineafowl will be supporting them for both their Sydney and Melbourne shows.

Both bands are as renowned for their dynamic live performances as for their irresistible tunes and musical prowess, as those in attendance at all their international shows can attest.

Givers’ debut album In Light has been described as vibrant, perfect for the warm summer, and bursting with invigorating melodies, shifting rhythms and an abundance of energy, as many will know from their revitalizing first single Up Up Up and new single Meantime.

Alaskan quartet Portugal. The Man released their much-anticipated sixth album In The Mountain In The Cloud in July. The album is filled with pulsing riffs and rings true to the buoyant rock and roll style that has permeated each album since the band’s 2006 debut.

Guineafowl have been charged with the task of getting the crowd primed for some serious dancing and as their sleep pop rock debut EP Hello Anxiety demonstrates, they are sure to impress.

The tour features a rotating headliner each night with Portugal. The Man headlining Sydney, Givers taking the reins in Melbourne and the bands flipping a coin for the top spot in Canberra.
