Laneway from Melbourne are playing a gig at Zimmer 16 in Berlin on May 25.
Would be freakin’ bonza to see you and your friends to experience some VondoLove again and have a blissful night.
You can find the FB event here.
See you there!
“Gorgeous mytho-poetic songwriting.” Street Press Australia
Tucked amongst the forested hills of Natural Bridge by a rippling spring-fed creek is a stone floor cabin that is home to Louise O’Reilly and Paul Hannan. Herein is the space where flowers in the hair, tapping of the boots, a swaying of the hips has been translated into the sound of the death of 1000 summers. The sounds of Laneway. Their dreamy landscape of country-tinged folk-surf pop is both instantly familiar and distinctly unique and has seen them acclaimed as some of the best songwriters from Australia and awarded them the Grant McLennan Memorial Fellowship.
The duo are based in Berlin for the European spring and summer to write, record and perform.

Learn more about Brett Winterford here.
Welcome back, Brett!
The Vondo Machine is proud to present Australian songwriter Brett Winterford, touring Europe and the US in 2012 in support of his first solo work, The Greenthumb EP.
After 12 years fronting Sydney-based rock/pop outfit peregrine, Winterford’s brave new work showcases his “narrative wit and poetic soul-searching” [The Australian] and his “wistfulness” [The Sydney Morning Herald] in equal measure.
The six-track recording deals with reclaiming the imagination and human spirit in the absence of religion and institution. It is a wide-eyed expression of wonderment for the natural world and those that choose to live peacefully in it.
