Bio

Melbourne indie-pop darlings, Tully on Tully, have been playing together, honing their craft since 2011. Stemming from lyricist Natalie Foster's innate ability to write a catchy melody, Tully on Tully brings together delicate indie-pop tunes and infectious hooks with all the heart-warming sensibilities of a full-piece band. Capturing the imagination of the listener with romantic stories and poetic imagery, the group's music delves into the world of longing and nostalgia - featuring unexpectedly dark lyrics.

2013 kicked off with Tully on Tully awarded the triple j Unearthed prize to play at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl for Melbourne’s all ages Push Over Festival. Not long after the band were invited to perform in Manila, Philippines at Wanderland Festival along with The Temper Trap and Nada Surf; followed by shows in Singapore. Returning to home shores mid year for the independent release of debut EP ‘Weightless’ coupled with national touring. ‘Weightless’ was well received at media, and by the bands growing fan base, featured at DIG and Triple R. Tully on Tully’s live show has been described as mesmerising, with audiences completely falling for the intrinsic song writing, spiralling guitar work and stunning vocal delivery, Tully on Tully have supported the likes of Whitley and Tiger Town.

Tully on Tully are setting their sights even higher for 2014. Kicking off the year with appearances at St Kilda Festival and Apollo Bay Music Festival as well as international touring including playing at Canadian Music Week and Music Matters in Singapore.

Natalie Foster’s vocals are breathtaking from the opener; effortlessly clear and powerful, but also bewitching and warm.….this is a band with an ethereal quality….Tully On Tully are both delicate and powerful, demonstrating flawless mastery of their instruments and vocals. A great performance. Inpress Magazine

I'm a bit of a sucker for a song with some good duelling vocals in it. This develops really nicely too.

there are a lot ...

there are a lot of things that work about this song, but there are also a few bits that don't. Overall, it's a great step up for the band and has a lot of things going for it, but personally for me, i don't think it's all the way there yet.
