“It takes a ballsy band to play the Sydney Opera House after just two albums… their ambition was given a pretty fair chance by a band which plays well enough to impress, a batch of songs which in their best moments have a soaring reach…and a singer who grew in confidence through the night until she was performing a lap dance on a woman from the front row and making it seem ridiculous and perfect.” The Sydney Morning Herald

To me, pop is the darkest music of all. If you look not at what pop artists are consciously doing but at what they’re reflecting about the world, pop is the most twisted, weird and scary stuff. If you wanted to study the Earth from an alien perspective, listen to pop music.”

The Jezabels are arch players of this contradiction. With The Jezabels there’s always a twist and they delight in toying with the darkness that somehow cloaks us all and yet channel it into songs that are layered with bright, chiming seams of pop.

  The pathways leading to the GW Mclennan Stage were shut down on Saturday when The Jezabels executed their set at Splendour In The Grass, due to too much traffic.
