Retiree is the musical project of three Sydney/ Melbourne mammals: Matt Crowley, Tori Holleman & Marco Vella. Over four summers they’ve steadily congealed their broad influences into a unique emulsion of strongly rhythmic and emotional music.
Retiree have released two 12″s both locally & internationally; Retiree EP (2013) on Plastic World followed by This Place EP (2015) on Rhythm Section International/Plastic World. This year saw the release of their new single ‘Jan’, which delves deeper into their tropical-pop production. Their live set throws all their keyboards, guitar pedals and woodblocks on stage, resulting in long-legged convulsing to a drum machine under honest lyrics.
2018 sees their return with Retiree giving us the first taste from an upcoming release on UK imprint Rhythm Section – a delectable earful in the form of a new single ‘Pumice Stone.’
This track is part of the group’s first full project in 3 years with a lot more on the way. Stay tuned.
