New Music: Poppongene "Belgravey"
Growing up in the south-east of Melbourne, I spent a lot of time in Belgrave. I always found it a little weird though - like a mix of rich baby boomers fanning the flames of exclusivity and a younger generation staying around to build a community that’s comforting and welcoming for a poor kid like me from Dandenong (and not ‘the Dandenongs’). I feel that kind of comfort in Belgravey, the new single from Poppongene. A slow filter patiently exposes a slack but wonderfully coherent sound that’s familiar whilst being new and exciting. RIP Ruby’s Lounge.
