October Wish is an independent Melbourne based band fronted by Matt Leffanue and Sarah Gurry. Matt and Sarah began their collaboration in 2012 and have completed the first insight into their artistic partnership with a debut album, “Between Grief and Grace” to be released in early 2017.
October Wish incorporates different musical genres and stretches a sonic landscape to create a sincere style. While their sound could be described as epic rock/folk their vocals do not conform to folk, and some of the dissonance employed in their song writing adds a jazz, even Celtic sophistication.
Rarely adhering to song-writing rules and structure, October Wish write from an un-censored place that creates a musical template that is both enigmatic. If you allow the songs enough time to breathe, their emotional depth and original beauty will steal both your heart and thoughts and quickly become your own.
October Wish will perform at Earth at the Mech on Saturday 15th July.
