Acoustic pop songstress GOSTI is back again to launch her second single – ‘Boy’ – from her 2012 album The Travel Tree. Scheduled for Friday 23 August at the Wesley Anne, Gosti will be performing an unplugged set with strings, hand percussion and acoustic guitar. Zane Beck and Jeremy Doolan will be supporting.
Gosti’s wind-swept lyrics tell tales of nostalgia and fragility. Her smoky intimate voice is accompanied by a menagerie of acoustic instruments and is snug in Melbourne’s indie-folk scene.
“… drifty, ethereal, and positively cockle-warming, even if what she’s singing about is a little more sombre. There can always be lighter parts found in the shade of the darkest trees, and we think that Gosti illuminates this little patch of goodness.”
– Georgia Frances King, Frankie Magazine
“Gosti’s voice has the ability to take you to another world, a dreamy, relaxing world.”
– Daniella Bagnara, The AU Review
“The Travel Tree is filled with whimsical, wistful lyrics […] Throughout the album we see a vast array of interesting techniques and strong work”
– Alice Thompson, AdamNotEve
Gosti has received high rotation radio play on C91.3 in Sydney, performed at various festivals and most recently won the Songs Alive Australia songwriting competition in 2012. After a sabbatical in Canada to write and record her ambitious new album The Travel Tree, Larissa returns to Melbourne to bring her latest songs to the stage.
Launch date: Friday 23 August
Launch venue: The Wesley Anne
Supports: Zane Beck and Jeremy Doolan
