Unsettled – featuring: Freehand, Hoax, and Baka Gajin Unsettled – featuring: Freehand, Hoax, and Baka Gajin
Saturday, November 23

Apparently genre is something you shouldn’t be confined to — well according to Hoax anyway. The Sewing Room & Shark Bait Records present Unsettled, an event tailor made to those who don’t fit in a box. Featuring local talents Freehand, Baka Gaijin and HOAX.

Freehand is the soul fusion outfit and passion project of singer-songwriter Gem Addison. Boasting performances in support of acts such as Odette Mercy and her Soul Atomics and a highlight performance before 10,000 climate strikers in September, Freehand’s earnest and dynamic set has been steadily gaining momentum in Perth’s scene. Taking inspiration from soul leaders in Motown and singer songwriter Carole King, along with modern twists influenced by Haitus Kayote and Thando, Freehand is sure to wrap you up in their soul-filled warm energy and keep you on your feet all night long. Baka Gaijin is the musical brainchild of keyboardist and songwriter Ethan Walters, whose knack for sculpting catchy indie pop songs out of totally wacky musical concepts is fully realised in this jazz-fusion four-piece. Joined by Michael Morgan on guitar, Placid’s James Marelich behind the kit, and Koi Child’s Yann Vissac on bass, Ethan indulges in genre-bending to the nth degree, as the band pulls from the shelf influences as wide and varied as the stylings of Jamiroquai, Regina Spektor, and Radiohead, to create a jazz-pop spectacular that has to be heard to be believed. It’s not easy to describe Baka Gaijin as a band, but one thing is for certain: they are utterly unique. HOAX is a fresh four-piece producing a unique sound that can’t be narrowed down to one genre. Featuring unpredictable instrumentals, raw unforgiving lyrics and too many influences to count, the group are set to keep you on your toes.
