HEADLINE: THE APARTMENTS
The Apartments, internationally acclaimed for their melodic and lyrically rich songbook, will play a range of tracks from across the band’s career, and for the first time in Melbourne for NGV, songs from 2015’s album No Song, No Spell, No Madrigal. First formed by Peter Milton Walsh in Brisbane in 1978, The Apartments relocated to England after being signed by legendary English record label Rough Trade. During the years of exile and through the albums which followed, The Apartments developed an intense cult following with critics and fans alike throughout Europe and America. For Friday Nights at NGV, The Apartments will be bringing it all back home.
