The Orbweavers, a band like no other – mesmerising, haunting and heartwarming. Drawing on a love of history and science, The Orbweavers have charmed audiences with evocative songs of creeks & quarries (Merri), greyhounds (You Can Run – Fern’s Theme), volcanoes (Japanese Mountains), textile mills, historic sewerage pumping stations (Spotswood) and the passing of time (The Hook). Dark and dulcet melodies, deft chiming guitar, violin and mournful trumpet meld to hypnotic effect, recalling reverberant ghosts of places past.
Since its release, The Orbweavers’ second album ‘Loom’ has garnered Triple R Melbourne Album of the Week, national and international praise. With performances at ABC TV studios, Melbourne Music Week (2011 & 2012), supports for Beach House and Cass McCombs, a National Gallery of Victoria residency, two sold out album launches at Northcote Social Club, and Caravan Music Club headline shows, The Orbweavers are fast drawing a devoted following of their spellbinding sound.
