Shining the Spotlight on Steve Kilbey and his new solo album, Eleven Women

October 9, 2020

Steve Kilbey released a new solo album in September and it is a must to listen to! He released Eleven Women, a collection is at once whimsical yet personal. About the album, The album leads us through a shimmering whirlwind of encounters. After the disarming love song ‘Baby Poe’ we are plunged headlong into the dark world of ‘Doris McAllister,’ an evil witch who takes us ‘by the bells’. We are regaled by the Celtic wistfulness of ‘Josephine’ as she forbiddingly awaits her ‘wine & roses’ while ‘Birdeen,’ a greedy lorikeet with a sweet tooth, beguiles us with infectious bounce & color. Eleven Women is full of melodic invention & lyrical surprises. Singling out tracks for special mention is frankly impossible since this album consists entirely of highlights. Amongst these however the timelessly beautiful  ‘Think of You’ shines brightly. This song has the unmistakeable stamp of eternity & evokes a sense of having existed since music began. Kilbey released a video for his song, Sheba Chiba and it truly captures his signature vocals and compelling lyrics.The video brings to life a nostalgic retro vibe. Check out the video here: The [Read More]

About the band She and husband Kristopher Pooley had been demoing songs showcasing Ginger’s penchant for empowering protest lyrics clothed in pop hooks, when they decided to reach out to guitarist Max Bernstein. He promptly added some tracks with a sub-octave fuzz permanently in the “on” position. Instantly, the three decided that Kris (a keyboard player by trade) would dust off his drum kit as this was not a synth operation —and a band was born.  They’ve also had their hands in the pop world, [Read More]
