Grievous Bodily Calm and 30/70 Interview Each Other for Perth Festival

Grievous Bodily Calm and 30/70 Interview Each Other for Perth Festival

The two artists catch up over text to fill us in on new music releases, upcoming tours, and a Perth Festival show this Friday

Many artists blend the lines of genre to yield a unique sonic landscape, and when it comes to hip-hop and jazz infused neo-soul Boorloo/Perth's Grievous Bodily Calm and Naarm/Melbourne’s 30/70 have perfected their recipes, respectively sitting in lanes of their own whilst sharing enough crossover for it to see fitting for them to share a stage. For Boorloo fans this is the case as the artists, alongside the irresistible alt-pop stylings of Great Statue - a project by Annika Moses (Nika Mo), perform The Rechabite this Friday February 17th as part of Perth Festival.

Alongside the show, 30/70 have their fourth studio album dropping on the same date, already giving us a taste with singles WITHOUT YOU, WITHIN ME, ALL 4 U, and ACCEPTANCE - which was recently featured in our Best Tunes of The Week.

Fresh from east coast shows including a showcase at Bigsound and at the Sydney Opera House Forecourt, Grievous Bodily Calm are gearing up for a festival appearance at Panama (TAS) following Perth Festival, in addition to teasing new releases ahead in 2023.

To catch up with each other before the show, Alex from Grievous Bodily Calm and Allysha Joy from 30/70 exchanged over text, sharing screenshots to give us the insider scoop of what they’ve been up to, what's ahead, and what we can expect this Friday. Be sure to read through the convo, and find details for the Perth Festival show this Friday below.
