Adelaide definitely has no shortage of great bands, and one of those bands we've had our eye on lately is Larsen. A few months ago we went along to a couple of their gigs, managed to sit down with the boys for a chat and just last week, they released a new single along with its own music video. As you might have guessed, its a pretty special one and in our opinion their best song and video to date! (Matt and Alex where you at with the tune rags to keep us cool? Oh wait....)
Throughout the video we're taken to a range of different places, from laundromats to bedrooms, and a large part of the video was even shot inside the German Club. Director Rory Pippan, was in charge of the creative decisions and it's evident a lot of hard work has been done to have the video reflect the exact mood of the song.
Upon first listen it's easy to recognise that this is the most mature and emotional material we've heard from Larsen so far.
"Burdens was written essentially about being manipulated, only in this case it's the person you have feelings for that is doing the manipulating. The chorus in particular is written about coming to terms with that realisation, and understanding that you've actually been relying on this person to feel happy, and wishing that you hadn't placed so much trust in one person to feel okay." - Liam (vocals/guitar)
So, without any further ado, here's Larsen brand new single, Burdens.
His latest film The Image Book is a fragmented, often overwhelming collage of images and sounds from disparate contexts.
A genre-blending thriller, drama and romance, exploring the phenomenon of catfishing from the catfish’s POV. Who You Think I Am is masterfully carried by veteran actress Juliette Binoche, who somehow manages to elicit sympathy to an unsympathetic cause.
The film could’ve very well devolved into the kind of old-man-yells-at-cloud platitudes we hear all the time about technology, but Assayas is a more deft handler of these conversations than most.
The power of theatre to realistically, yet conceptually tackle taboo topics in society is proven by local company Velvet Chase Productions in their performance of Daniella Candida’s #nofilter, a unique, expressive and emotive exploration of mental illness, its causes, its effects, and the many faces of it.
Rose Callaghan’s comedic listicle is a welcome addition to the Rhino Room’s cracking line up.
A harmless, fumbling fool with an unpredictably cutting wit.
The energy, pace, hilarity, wit and talent of The Handlebards’ Twelfth Night makes the show a standout that anyone can enjoy.
SEPTEM is a short and sharp piece of theatre that realistically shows the true nature of humans when faced with ultimate life or death.
Hand In Hand is a cute, colourful, playful piece of quirky circus that the whole family can genuinely enjoy,
Heart-warming, electric, and funny to boot, Build A Rocket is the kind of show that cartwheels around your mind for days to come.
