Like a seductive David Lynch chanteuse, Susie Scurry occupies the stage in a dreamy twilight world. Her smoky vocals deliver lament and subtle wit in equal measure, pondering a modern world gone awry.
Drawing on formative influences that take in Appalachian string-band music and the canon of Roy Orbison, Scurry calls from a time of burnished musical purity. Infused with both dark space and languor, her songs also honour the likes of Patsy Cline, Karen Dalton and Billy Holiday. Susie is a voice in the lonesome night demanding an earnest and endearing ear, imploring us to see through the haze and make simpler sense of today’s world.
A striking new voice in Australian music, Susie Scurry will hypnotise and lure you into soft-glowing stupor.
