Quintessentially Australian pop noir group My Friend The Chocolate Cake take to the road for a series of concerts this June and July performing songs from their highly acclaimed 2017 album, The Revival Meeting, alongside some old favourites from their extensive back catalogue.
The song writing genius of David Bridie combined with the glorious strings of Helen Mountfort's cello and Hope Csutoros' violin is high in the curious collision of elements that have made My Friend The Chocolate Cake a big concert draw, triple ARIA winners and a vivid presence on countless film and TV soundtracks for more than two-and-a-half decades. Their album history is a multi-dimensional mural of modern Australia that illustrates its geography, its political mores and its predominantly suburban identity, all by the kind of stealth that makes the most haunting, exhilarating and enduring pop music.
The six-piece's sound is a seamless fusion of baroque pop, world music melodies, and ambient textures, with Bridie's voice counterpointed by the strings of cellist Helen Mountfort and violinist Hope Csutoros.
