City Calm Down Played A Triumphant Homecoming At 170 Russell
City Calm Down have had one hell of a year off the back of their 2015 debut record In A Restless House, winning hearts and firmly asserting themselves as a mainstage act at festivals like Falls and Splendour.
Having just wound down a national tour with a couple of gigs in their hometown of Melbourne, the shows at the relatively intimate 170 Russell were a treat for fans, with an added bonus in support from local favourite Ali Barter and emerging talent Middle Kids.
The band have truly aged into their signature sound over the last couple of years, with vocalist Jack Bourke’s rich timbre sounding increasingly authentic as time marches on, and they looked astoundingly confident onstage after weeks of touring. Our photographer Yana Amur was there to capture one very special homecoming show.
