In Australia to promote the release of her new album Ivy Tripp (via Wichita / [PIAS]), Waxahatchee will give Australian audiences their first opportunity to hear songs from the new record as well as her two celebrated previous albums.
Ivy Tripp was recorded with long-term collaborator Kyle Gilbride and features single ‘Under A Rock’, which has been picking up plays on Triple J and community radio in Australia.
Since surfacing in 2012 with her debut American Weekend, Waxahatchee has risen to become one of the most prominent voices in US indie rock, drawing comparisons to the likes of The Breeders, Elliot Smith and Cat Power and prompting reviewers to describe her second album, Cerulean Salt in the most glowing terms.
Fellow singer-songwriter Ali Barter will support Waxahatchee in Melbourne and Sydney, with Jen Buxton taking the stage at the Sydney show as well.
July 3 – Newtown Social Club, Sydney NSW
July 4 – The Toff In Town, Melbourne VIC
