Unearthed artists we like
No Hausfrau explores 'suburban folk rock’, injected into every-day storytelling. Fronted by Alice Cottee, this heartstring filled folk-league just wants to hold you.
Debut album ‘We Were Invincible’ was released in November 2014, the first release since the group’s self- titled EP (2012). No Hausfrau also received the award for ‘Best ACT Country Artist’ (Music ACT Music Awards, 2012).
Alice's velvet-coated voice has taken her along the festival scene (Woodford & WOMAD) as a member of the Andi & George Band. No Hausfrau has packed out venues at The National Folk Festival, with their intimate and emotionally powerful show.
Supports include Adalita, Mojo Juju, Tim Rogers, Laura Jean, Jenny Hval, Jackie Marshall & Jimmy Webb (US). No Hausfrau combines emotive ambition with the mundane, in a theatric vehicle of genre-crossing melody.
If you must have a mental comparison, we suggest My Brightest Diamond & Susanne Vega meets Johnny Cash while eating sushi off Tia Carrere.
