A HIDDEN TREASURE COMES TO LIGHT

DAWESVILLE CUT
HIDDEN TREASURES, THE BUFFALO CLUB, 11 JULY

Around The Sound attended the opening night of the 2019 iteration of Hidden Treasures on 11 July.  It’s a ripping series of events that lights up the streets of Freo with live music happening across multiple venues and queues of people clamouring to get in to experience some of the best of what’s on offer in the mild west.  Just how it should be every night of the week!

They climbed onto the stage a bit nervously — guitar, bass, keys and drums — and, without fanfare, proceeded to play a set of beautiful pop bangers, songs that would just build and build, taking you along for the ride.

The whole point of Hidden Treasures is that it’s choc full of surprises, so you go in expecting the unexpected.  Which makes it all the better when a band pops up and gives you a real surprise.

On this chilly winter evening, supplemented by glitter, hairspray and a whole lotta crazy, a little-known outfit called Dawesville Cut was the choice pick of the night.

Led from the back by drummer, Sean Gorman, who also provides the band’s exquisite and ethereal vocals, Dawesville Cut took the audience at the Buffalo Club on a 40-minute ride through some of the most beautifully melancholic and evocative songs we’ve heard in quite a while.  With hints of reggae and lilting summer nights with waves lapping tranquil shoreline, we were in the heart of Fremantle, but we could have been anywhere.  It’s a uniquely Aussie thing that, when a band can sound just like home, but feel like they’d be right at home almost anywhere in the world.

Some of Dawesville Cut’s songs felt a bit like sketches that evening.  There’s plenty for this band still to do, but from what we saw, Dawesville Cut are already worth checking out and will only get better as time goes by.  We rate them and you should go check them out.
