Two Bright Lakes is proud to release the debut film clip ‘Ninja’, from Banoffee premiered today on US blog Pigeons and Planes.

 

Watch Banoffee ‘Ninja’ Video at Pigeons and Planes

 

Banoffee is the sweet solo sound of Martha Brown (Otouto), a Melbourne songwriter with a keen ear for vintage synthesizers and modern R-n-B.

Banoffee’s music recalls the balearic sounds of the 1980s and the futurist space of UK bass music, merging with her own arresting take on R’n’B, a musical place where Detroit inspired synths end up in love songs that sound distinctly modern.

Her debut single Ninja twists and starts, Martha’s voice taking you where you’d least expect. Regular collaborator Alice Glenn accompanies the song with an hypnotic and intimate clip shot in an otherworldly warehouse space.

Two Bright Lakes is very excited to be releasing the first of Banoffee’s music to the world, beautifully crafted, esoteric pop music from a strong female voice.

“Banoffee plies intimate ache into jams that still inspire dancefloor joy.”
– Anthony Carew, Mess+Noise

Oscar Key Sung

Two Bright Lakes and Wondercore Island are excited to present Oscar Key Sung live over 4 Thursdays in June at Melbourne’s new non-profit bar Shebeen in Manchester Lane.

Since exploding out of the Two Bright Lakes community as one half of Oscar + Martin in 2010, Oscar has received international acclaim for his refreshingly spacious productions, buoyant performances, and a sumptuous voice that harkens back to a classic lineage of heart-on-sleeve r ‘n’ b frontmen

Bringing in 2013 with perhaps his biggest breakthrough yet, Oscar Key Sung was handpicked by Mercury Music Prize-nominated mc Ghostpoet and Brooklyn-based artist MeLo-X to produce their debut release as MELOGHOST, ‘WecanWORKitout’. Quickly receiving over 44,000 plays and with further collaborations in the pipeline, Oscar’s latest single ‘WIMLTM’ recently clocked 20,000 plays with no associated promotional backing or performances.

Now receiving further spins and the tastemaking praise of BBC Radio 6 programmer Gilles Peterson, Oscar Key Sung is now set to bring his startling story to the international stage with two promotional singles ‘It’s Coming’ and ‘Sure Thing’, out now for free download at www.oscarkeysung.bandcamp.com

WHAT IS OPUS and WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT ORMOND HALL?
Ormond Hall has a proud heritage as one of Melbourne ’s premier entertainment venues. Built in 1891, this beautiful hall was originally established as a music hall for the blind, run by the Royal Victorian Institute for the Blind (RVIB).
In 1922 Ormond Hall began operation as a dance hall.
During the Second World War, the hall was occupied by the RAAF, and its late-closing bar proved very popular amongst members. Ormond Hall was returned to the RVIB in 1947, and much to the excitement of the community, balls and dances were once again held.

In the late sixties, the “famous Ormond Hall” experienced a surge in popularity when it became home to one of Melbourne ’s most popular dance clubs, Opus. Opus was the place to be for the “teen and twenties” set, and provided patrons with live music, Opusdancers, and a coffee lounge with television screens every Saturday and Sunday night.
