“Billiant set! Thanks for entertaining us all!!”… Carclew Youth Arts
ABRASKA is a new face on an established collective of accomplished Adelaide musicians.
ABRASKA has emerged from national touring band Conchillia, fresh with new ideas and a different purpose; the sound is more deliciously diverse, the band’s personality has evolved, its appeal more instantaneous. ABRASKA is the sum of great experience, yet is still deliciously new. The core band members have crafted a deep mutual understanding from four years of performing together. It’s the basis of ABRASKA’s live show that elevates to giddy heights, as deft musicianship and astute performance skills enable the band to revel in the moment, pump up the fun and take the audience higher.
New ABRASKA songs tread a daring path, weaving a rich tapestry of exciting threads. Dynamic Indie energy. Pop appeal. Global rhythms. Jazz smarts. Dancefloor sensibilities. This group melds its diverse backgrounds through vibrant musical roots, bouncy brassy global rhythms, smooth sophisticated vocals, all with an intensity machine that keeps on giving. The bands original material, shines with open, worldly, illuminating insights, that refuse binary judgement, and enable human empathy.
