It was a long time coming, but Clare Bowditch's fourth studio album, 'Modern Day Addiction' was very much worth the wait.
Modern Day Addiction is a contagious, satirical, yet heart-achingly tender album about humanity and "the eternal search for meaning" in a world of quick, delicious fixes.
It stands as a companion on the journey for anyone who's ever asked the question "Surely there must be more?" followed by the statement "If so, great, I'll pop back for it once I've finished reading this article about absolute-rubbish-that-somehow-has-me-transfixed-to-the-screen...everyone SHUT UP! I'm concentrating..."
As Clare tells it (and who knows if she's telling the truth? Have you noticed how all her stories these days begin with "I woke up one morning"?)
"I woke up one morning and my heart was broken (just in the usual, everyday way) and all I wanted was a muffin, and a tall glass of combined coffee and Jagermeister, even though I was neither hungry, nor thirsty, which prompted the thought 'Hmm, how very interesting! Perhaps there's an album in here somewhere?' Thus began my extensive and exhaustive research-project into the topic of 'Everyday Addiction and the Human Condition'. Oh the reading list was endless, I tell you, I've barely left the local-newsagency since..."
In a most enjoyable and surprising way, Modern Day Addiction also aims to celebrate and question the modern world that produced it.
The only way to tell a story THIS BIG is to gather a "chops-heavy" band of eight around you (aka The New Slang) including three incredible back-up singers (Clare's oft-referred to Lady Garden), a small plane-full of instruments, sing-along lyric sheets, and hit the road. Hard.
Sultan plays a blend of country, soul and rock 'n' roll.
Rani Stewart, Chairperson of the Festival Committee said "Dan Sultan's style of music is perfect for the Festival.
Whether you prefer to sit back on the lawn or get your groove on – it's really a style that can be enjoyed by everyone."
Tickets are now on sale for $55.00 from the Esperance Civic Centre, Library and Tourist Centre or online at www.esperanceciviccentre.com
