PS Approved: Falcona 10th Birthday
The good people at Falcona have been representing some of the best acts in Australia for TEN YEARS now! Can you believe it?
The leading boutique music agency has been responsible for touring/ managing acts like Alison Wonderland, Hayden James, Kira Puru, Running Touch and heaps more. On Saturday, June 29, they’ll be transforming Footscray’s The Wool Store into a party paradise, and with a decade of partying behind them, it’s guaranteed to be a big one.
They’ve put together a stacked one day festival filled with some of the roster’s local best and brightest. We’re bloody excited for them, so we’ve put together a list of acts on the lineup you definitely don’t want to miss.
George Maple‘s one of those Australian artists that continually edges her way further and further to the top. Whether it be through her fully-realised vision for both sound and performance or her keen ear for collaborating with acts such as DJ Snake, Hayden James, What So Not, Flume and more, she’s an Aussie act that has proven to be as malleable as she is talented.
Back in 2017, she released her debut full-length record, Lover, backed it up with her first national headline tour in 2018 and supported Lorde around the country too.
She’s currently gearing up to release her second record sometime in the next few months, with the first taste of what’s to come blaring into our consciousness back in February. ‘Champion’ embodies the fierceness of Maple‘s live aesthetic with her keen ear for crafting quick-building, highly emotive pop tracks. Take a listen below, learn every word and scream them with conviction at Falcona’s 10th Birthday.
Since releasing her debut EP, Self Sabotage, at the tail end of last year, Sydney’s GRAACE has continually captivated us with her brutally honest, personal brand of electro-pop. The EP holds a special sort of vulnerability that both shows of every side of GRAACE and details a process of healing and self-discovery.
‘Have Fun At Your Party’, her latest single, details a feeling of longing that we’ve all had too well. Backed up with her beautifully telling vocal style and a myriad of production that emotively captures the essence of the track, it’s another beautiful addition to her already expansive back catalogue.
The man himself, Running Touch, has been busy making waves across the world with his complex take on electro-pop, one that sees him leaning more towards the electronic side of the spectrum than anything. With a career that began with whispers down in Melbourne, he’s since gone on to become one of the most reliably exciting names on the electronic music circuit.
‘Make Your Move’ is the latest cut from him, and one that sees him settle into a deep groove with his ditty vocals crooning effortlessly over the carefully designed soundscape. It’s the perfect jam to have a dance to, and one that you can bet you’ll hear at Falcona’s 10th Birthday.
Sydney’s Young Franco is no stranger to the touring circuit, commanding heaving dancefloors both across the country and internationally too. He’s come so far in his time performing, now being considered one of the countries’ most seasoned acts, and one who damn well knows his way around the CDJ’s.
His latest track, ‘Otherside’ features the glossy vocals of Reva DeVito and Golden Vessel‘s unmistakeable croon. It’s been a big year for him, with two new singles under his belt featuring a stellar bunch of collaborators and shows all over town, he’s an apt act to put on that stellar Falcona 10th Birthday lineup.
