Paul Kelly’s performance is comprised of previously unseen footage from his sold-out ‘Making Gravy’ show at The Domain last year.

The Teskey Brothers will be accompanied by the 45-piece Orchestra Victoria for their performance, which looms as a sneak preview of the band’s upcoming YouTube special.

Baker Boy will team up with Dallas Woods and Sampa The Great for his spot in the episode. The trio previously united for the sixth episode of the series’ second season. This week’s performance of ‘Better Days’ includes footage captured at Victoria’s Hanging Rock and in Botswana.

Closer to home, Ball Park Music’s appearance was filmed during a recent live show at The Triffid in Brisbane. Hot on the heels of their recent album release, the band will perform ‘Cherub’ for The Sound this week.

Both Alex Lahey and Alex The Astronaut will also perform recent releases for their spots on the show, ripping through ‘Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want To Fight Tonight)’ and ‘I Think You’re Great’ respectively.


There is no word yet on whether The Sound will return in 2021 for a third season.
