Event details

An unquestionably complimentary pair.

In 2020, Melbourne artists Gregor and Sweet Whirl released acclaimed albums, Destiny and How Much Works respectively. Now, they finally get to launch these wonderful records with a co-headline show in the beautiful surrounds of Elisabeth Murdoch Hall.

Gregor is one of Australia’s most beloved pop eccentrics. His album Destiny is an engrossing psychedelic epic, full of lovesick introspection and a sense of wonder for the natural world. With debut album How Much Works, Sweet Whirl’s Esther Edquist arrived fully formed, delivering a masterclass in poised, effortless song writing.

As a pair, they are unquestionably complimentary. Their penchant for deep, thoughtful song writing is evident, woven artfully into the fabric of each song. Do not miss this performance of whimsy and talent, sharing works from their most recent release.

Praise for Gregor & Sweet Whirl

‘[How Much Works is] a quiet demonstration of how Edquist might just be one of the best singer-songwriters in the country.’ NME

‘[Gregor’s Destiny] is psych-pop for oddballs: strange and unabashed.’ Sydney Morning Herald
