FOR their seventh year, This Way North is coming back to Fawcett Hall on Saturday, February 10 to showcase their pop indie music alongside their great mates, The Tuckshop Ladies, and special guest Sal Kimber.
Vocalist and guitarist, Leisha Jungalwalla, explained her love for performing at Fawcett Hall as it all started as a fun little show and became so much more for the group.
“The show became really special, it’s a lovely way to honour where I am from, and it’s a fun thing to do with our friends… It’s just a beautiful night, most people have been there three or four times, it’s a beautiful atmosphere. Generally, it’s gorgeous weather and it’s set up out the back and people have picnics. It’s a relaxing night and just lots of fun,” Leisha said.
This Way North have been working really hard over the years. Three years in the making, the album Punching Underwater is ready to be released. The first single, My Love, was released last October.
The single was filmed in Arctic Canada, and included Inuit throat singer, Chirstine Tootoo.
Leisha said, “It was an amazing opportunity, to go somewhere incredible and be able to record that.”
A new film clip and single will be released in a couple of weeks times which the duo filmed at the Old Beechworth Gaol and pool.
“The album is named Punching Underwater and we set it up at the pool and filmed it there, and photographed our album cover there too,” Leisha said.
This Way North will be performing at Fawcett Hall on Saturday, February 10. Doors open at 6pm and music starts at 7pm. BYO picnics, drinks, and lawn chairs. You can get tickets here.
