Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand
Saturday 23rd June 2012
Luckless and Bond Street Bridge are touring New Zealand and their only Nelson date is at The Free House. The tour precedes a forthcoming album from Luckless, their debut, and succeeds Bond Street Bridge's new album Spring Summer Awesome Winter release in 2011.
Luckless are a self-described melancholic indie-rock duo, consisting of drummer Will Wood and guitarist and vocalist Ivy Rossiter. Drawing on influences as diverse as Portishead, PJ Harvey and Sparklehorse, the duo’s fiery combination of drums and distortion ebbs and swells with each carefully crafted song. Bond Street Bridge is the solo project of Sam Prebble, using loop pedals and tape echoes to build up layers of guitar, violin, beats and vocals to produce a hypnotic, compelling and original sound. Evocative lyrics and sonically lush instrumental arrangements make an eclectic live show which has secured Bond Street Bridge invitations to support New York art-pop duo The Books and the LA country-noir of the Willard Grant Conspiracy.
