"Live Review - CMW 2014 Showcase: The Aussie BBQ @ The Horseshoe Tavern"

This Lismore four piece were given the duty of opening the Aussie BBQ for 2014, and they did so in style, with "Hold Onto Your Hats" proving a highlight of the half an hour set. Ange Saul, who leads the group, rocks it - to say the very least - with a stellar voice. A band I think you need to see live to get the full experience... - The AU Review

2009 - Future Target EP

2012 - The Black Lullaby EP

2013 - Fell in Love With a Rockstar - Single



It all started in Music Street in 2007, where plenty of bands do - in somebodys garage, experimenting with their music every chance they got.

The Black Lullaby evoke a sense of confidence in the listener.  From the opening chords of their recent self-titled EP you can feel the band is self-assured, confident and focused on raising tough questions through dark-edged yet strangely uplifting music.

ARIA award nominated producer Lachlan Mitchell (The Jezabels, The Whitlams) has helped create soundscapes and a snug fitting bed for Ange Sauls sweetly haunting vocals to reign over.

Blending acoustic instruments with gritty guitars, a solid rhythm section, and ethereal harmonies, this accomplished independent release takes the element of Earth to follow on from the Water theme that imbued their 2009 debut EP Future Target.

What ties the songs together on the new EP? Ange explains. The line that connects the new songs is change.  I used to rely so much on what I heard or read as fact, and absorbed it as my own ideals. Now, in our hyper-connected world, I question everything. 

The Black Lullabys sophomore release delivers on musicianship, melodic sensibility and production values, and embodies a distinctly Australian grass roots indie rock sound, while retaining the band's own unique voice.

The Black Lullaby had an amazing 2012, with headline shows in Melbourne, Sydney and Byron. 2013 included a run of shows across the east coast of Australia, including supports with British India and The Trouble with Templeton. The Black Lullaby premiered their new single "Fell in Love With A Rockstar" at the inaugural Byron Bay Falls Festival over new years 2013/2014 and also showcased at Canadian Music Week 2014 in Toronto.
