The Grawlixes

Dates: Friday 21 July

Wellington's Grawlixes embark on a New Zealand tour in celebration of the release of their first album “Set Free.”

Presale tickets $15 from Aviary or undertheradar, $20 on the door.

Grawlixes are an indie-folk duo who explore romance with dry wit and sharp tongue, crafting infectious songs about relationships and not being invited to parties. Continuing the lineage of artists who bring sadness to their sprightly melodies, Grawlixes' music often deals in the melancholy with self-deprecating honesty and beautiful boy-girl harmonies, sung by Robin Cederman and Penelope Esplin (French For Rabbits, Prophet Hens and Sunley Band).

The past few years have seen Grawlixes tour NZ multiple times, along with an extensive tour of Europe in late 2015, supporting (and playing in) label-mates French for Rabbits.
Robin and Penelope filled the shoes of guitarist and bassist in French for Rabbits for the tour (Penelope even having to learn bass), clocking up sizeable stage hours along the way.

Afterward, Grawlixes converted a stuffy spare room into an emerald-curtained home studio and, between shifts and other band commitments, recorded their debut album "Set Free," due for release July 7th (Home Alone/Southbound).

"Set Free" documents a slanted, and emotionally amplified version of the time Robin and Penelope spent as a couple: their initial hopes and joys becoming fears and frustrations, as they tried to negotiate playing together while living together in the hills above Dunedin. It's an interesting choice for a couple to continue playing music together as a duo after breaking up, but none the less, here we are.
