The poetic indie rockers play their classic album Sunset Studies in full, to celebrate its 21st anniversary.
Released in 2000, Sunset Studies is the iconic debut album from Australian indie rock favourites Augie March. Musically the album moves seamlessly from sophisticated to naive, joyful to desolate, from intense guitar rock to a stark ambient sound and traditional folk balladry. Songs such as ‘Asleep in Perfection’, ‘There Is No Such Place’, ‘The Hole in Your Roof’ and ‘Here Comes the Night’ have all become cult anthems.
Augie March went on to release five more acclaimed albums and garner an enduring reputation as one of Australia’s most engaging live acts. But Sunset Studies is where it all began, going gold and remaining an expansive, ambitious and literate entry into Australia’s rock canon—and to celebrate its 21st anniversary the band will play the album in full.
