Biography

ABOUT

THE SETTLEMENT are a band of brothers from regional Victoria that rose from the beer soaked “pub” scene of South East Australia.

They have released music each year since forming and have been touring Australia relentlessly earning themselves the reputation of a gang of reprobates that live to play, on and off the stage.

2017 has been huge for THE SETTLEMENT with touring, radio play, being nominated for "Best Song" - Australian Roots Music Awards, Rolling Stone premier and most importantly the release of their debut album Stand In The Middle which realizes their potential as songwriters and recording artists.

"Partnering the song’s sombre focus with the strained stretch of violins and vocalist Adrian Calvano’s elongated, bluntly-delivered lines" - RollingStone Aus

“a rollicking slice of tunage” - The Brag on "She's Alright"

"Here, The Settlement successfully dump tired country music tropes to welcome everyone in for a drink." - The Music on Stand In The Middle

"The band’s roots in folk is clear, but they’ve projected a great amount of evocative punch with this single that indicates The Settlement’s move into some great alt-country territory." - The Au Review on "She Feels Like Home"

2017 represented their first foray into International touring as they were accepted to showcase in LA at YouBloom and NYC at the Mondo NYC Conference.  They spent a month in the US during September and October making believers out of a whole new territory of potential fans.

THE SETTLEMENT believe so hard from the stage that it's impossible not to feel the same from the audience.

In 2018 the lads are planning again to expand their territory abroad and will be commencing recording in February aiming for a new single in April and an album towards the later half of 2018.


Lyrics

Clean Trouble

Written By: Adrian Calvano

Morning floor boards are freezing
and the darkness tells me that i’m all alone
Read the letter that you left on our bedside table
Hinting you have gone and done something wrong

You’ve been causing trouble
You’ve been causing trouble for me

And i’m counting down the days ’til you,
until you come clean

Waking it’s been harder without you
There’s nobody to tell my morning joke
All my friends, said boy you got to get out there
But the letter she wrote was all that i know

You’ve been causing trouble
You’ve been causing trouble for me

And i’m counting down the days ’til you,
until you come clean

Yes I am

Down the street, I see your face
in the things we used to do
My memories i cant replace
what more can i do
I wanna know, I wanna see
That you feel my pain,
But it’s just not the same

You’ve been causing trouble
You’ve been causing trouble for me

And i’m counting down the days ’til you,
until you come clean

Yes I am, yes I am
All that you done, all that you done lord
Tell me you’re wrong, tell me that you’re wrong

Well i’m counting down the days ’til you,
until you come clean
