“Visually stunning, with an air of mystery, eccentricity and intrigue” – GlamAdelaide (AUSTRALIA)

Adelaide, Australia’s BRILLIG are storytellers from another time, boldly twisting the traditional in Americana into an artful blend of WHISKEY SOAKED FOLK, rollicking SEA SHANTIES,  toe-tapping COWBOY TUNES, and even more deliciously dark themes.

 

Featuring vocal harmonies & an array of instruments, BRILLIG channel a bygone-era poetic flair that’s polished for modern audiences. Their distinct sound tips a hat to an eclectic combination of styles, with the press comparing them to Johnny Cash, Neil Young, Nick Cave, Leonard Cohen, The Decemberists, The Pogues, The Dresden Dolls and more.

BRILLIG are right at home with audiences who love catchy melodies, cheeky charm & something a little left of centre. Playing as a duo, trio or with a guest drummer, they suit any stage intimate or immense and have been spellbinding festival crowds across the globe.
