Since 2016, local creative hub ‘Adamstown Arts’ has been supporting both ‘The [Y] Project’ and ‘Lo-Fi’. These two initiatives aim to bring live, local, contemporary music to Newcastle to youth and people of all ages, respectively. Lo-Fi aims to make a positive contribution to the Newcastle Music and Arts community, and attempt to break down walls of segregation through the means of live music.
This year, Newcastle Music Festival will feature a special Lo-Fi event that will see national artist Imbi the Girl come to join forces with local bands, Shrimp, Hey Universe, Flight Hawk and Cherry Stain.
Imbi the Girl
After releasing their first two singles in 2017, supporting Drapht, HWLS and FKJ, and making their festival debut on the main stage at Festival Of The Sun described by AAA Backstage as “one of the most extraordinary moments in music I’ve ever witnessed”, imbi the girl has landed on the Australian music scene as a young and irresistible artist.
With the success of their well-received debut single, acidic, Triple J Unearthed Music Director, Dave Ruby Howe dubbed them “overflowing with talent” whilst hip-hop duo, Coda Conduct raved that they “can’t stop listening to this gorgeous thing.”
Premiered by Triple J, imbi the girl’s follow-up single “could be the sexiest song ever made” as stated by Purple Sneakers. Directed by Gabriel Gasparinatos (R.A. The Rugged Man, B Wise & The Goods) and premiered by Noisey, the music video for V.I.P. revisits the release which gained over 50,000 Spotify streams since September last year.
With upcoming festival appearances at Groovin The Moo, Big Pineapple Music Festival and Wide Open Space Festival, imbi the girl is sure to make an even bigger splash in the industry in 2018 and beyond.
Lo-Fi and Civil Thrill events are held at The Dungeon, hidden beneath a church on Glebe Rd, Adamstown NSW, which has been home to some impressive jazz gigs over the years, becoming a popular venue for national and international touring acts since its modest beginnings in 1996. The Dungeon is proving to be as popular for acts of differing genres, from both the local area and further afield.
