Natalie Mering’s songs have a gauzy sheen of casual, sunsoaked romance, like a faded photo from the 70s; old pianos and moody horns create a halo around a rich, lissom voice. Mering’s work as Weyes Blood has been compared to Judee Sill and Nick Drake. Latest album Front Row Seat To Earth feels as intimate and as expansive as the title suggests and sees her luxuriating in Laurel Canyon hippie textures. But as her history of collaboration with experimental artists like Ariel Pink and Jackie-O Motherfucker suggests, there is a modern weirdness in her love of lived-in sounds.

From the eerie, complex folk-rock elegies of her earlier Weyes Blood records, to the ‘uneasy listening’ AM radio nostalgia of Front Row Seat To Earth, Mering is bringing a wealth of moody beauty to Sydney – with a backing band featuring Sydney's Jack Ladder (Sydney Festival 2016) on bass and Daniel Stricker (Midnight Juggernauts) on drums.

To get in the mood for Weyes Blood's show, listen to Natalie Mering's ultimate summer playlist.

Note: The Meriton Festival Village is a licensed venue. Under 18s must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
