Boroky is the music baby of Canberran singer/songwriter/producer Toby Graham. Aiming to express the fracturing of reality and sense of bewilderment experienced by young Australians, as well as the importance of ethics in times of fear and doubt, ultimately, Boroky is a cry of hope for a better world.
Lyrically, Boroky explores some of the stranger facets of what it means to be human, do good, be honest, love, have a mental illness, have sex and die, as well as a bunch of interesting facts about fish. Musically, the blend of influences that creates this special brand of art pop ranges from Renaissance choral music to the LA Beat Scene, introducing a variety of rhythm and harmony to the pop idiom in an attempt to make something deeply beautiful and fun. Angler Fish is the second single released in the lead up to the release of Boroky’s debut LP.
Supported by Happy Axe
Happy Axe returns to The Street following the release of their new album 'Dream Punching' in December 2017. The launch was a huge success, seeing Happy Axe play to a packed house, enveloped in reverant hush, absorbed in the alternate reality where trip hop, violin, musical saw, and beat-driven dream pop grow wild in the ground, waiting for a trained master like Happy Axe to dig them up, arrange them and trim them into perfect sonic bonsai.
Happy Axe toured Japan in July 2017, was nominated for two National Live Music Awards in October, and has created an accomplished a body of work that builds on the ideas of place explored in her debut EP, 'This Topia'.
Expect a sound-pallete of vocals, saw and violin, chopped, re-pitched, and crafted into luscious, experimental pop songs.
