"Tulalah + Canary + Officer Parrot @ The Grace Darling."

Finally, headliners Officer Parrot rounded out the night with their ukulele based tunes. These guys really remind me of Beirut, with the piano accordion from time to time as well as the glockenspiel and trumpet combination. Upbeat but not over energetic music that you can listen to for extended periods, these kids know where it’s at. The occasional dabble with latin rhythms is tempered by the intricate ukulele and the calm voice of lead singer Finn Bennet and brother Martin. Take a listen to their stuff on unearthed. You can also purchase their EP on iTunes, from the Eltham Bookshop, Readings, or better yet, at a gig! - All I do is Listen

Bio

Hailing from Melbourne’s north east, this young band combines intricate ukulele and piano accordion with the warm tones and harmonies of brothers Finn and Martin Bennet. Top this off with weaving counter-melodies of trumpet player Felix Watson and the comforting yet unpredictably fiery electric blanket of drums (Maddison Carter), bass and keyboard (Nico Callaghan).
