Melbourne dream pop band Hachiku have announced a live-streamed performance this weekend, titled Live From The Forest.
The concert will see frontwoman Anika Ostendorf and her band perform on Dja Dja Wurrung land, northwest of Melbourne. The stream will be on Sunday December 13 from 12pm AEDT through the streaming platform Baby.tv, organised by New York venue Baby’s All Right.
The show follows the release of Hachiku’s debut album ‘I’ll Probably Be Asleep’, which arrived last month. Prior to the album’s release, Hachiku shared the singles ‘Bridging Visa B’, ‘Shark Attack’, ‘Murray’s Lullaby’ and the title track.
Speaking to NME about the LP, Ostendorf, originally from Germany, said the album’s contents were inspired by moments from the last four years.
“Thematically, what each song [on the album] would be about is so all over the place,” she said.
“Some songs would be [written] while doing long-distance. Some were when I was back in Germany and while my dog was passing away.
“At the start of being here I’d never really seen myself as being in one place longer than two years. For some reason when I’m not stimulated with a new thing, I get distracted really easily.”
