Scandinavian folk duo My Bubba make soft, soulful, sensual music that’s as playful as it is powerful. Together, My Larsdotter and Bubba Tomasdottir, will bring their tunes and the applauded new album, Big Bad Good, to Australia in March 2017 when they will perform two headline shows and also open for Willie Watson.

The duo will play headline shows in Sydney on Tuesday, March 21st at the Newtown Social Club and on Wednesday, March 22nd at the Northcote Social Club and will also perform at the Blue Mountains Folk Festival on March 18 and 19 and Castlemaine State Festival on March 23.

Tickets for all shows are on sale now.

My Bubba have fast made a name for themselves and have toured with Damien Rice, co-written music with Matthew E. White, recorded with Noah Georgeson, stepped on Bryan Adams’ toes, literally and received praises from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers founding member Benmont Tench, “If you weren’t at the Bootleg tonight for My Bubba, exactly who/why/what are you? These two women are decidedly from Someplace Else, and I don’t just mean Iceland & Sweden. Though that too.“

The new album, Big Bad Good, was recorded with Shahzad Ismaily (Will Oldham, Jolie Holland) at his Brooklyn studio, Figure 8 Recording. The songs were recorded as they were written, and most of the takes are among the first times the songs were ever sung – allowing the record to portray the immediate rawness and intimacy of a newborn song.

Sonically sparse, the songs these women weave are laced with dark humour and clever bite. Sunday morning with the creeping sense of Saturday night’s mistakes, black tea with a drop of honey. My Bubba’s sound ushers in the heaviness while leaving nothing but room to breathe. This is sensual, unhurried music, with changes that take their time to reveal themselves. Simultaneously strange and familiar, like milk from another planet.

Opening for My Bubba will be Freya Josephine Hollick. An old world songbird who harks from the Victorian Goldfields, Hollick is well versed in all kinds of music and has followed a path back to a time that holds true to her voice, her songwriting and her story. Hollick’s voice has been described as haunting, as both powerful and fragile, it is truly a voice unlike any other, and one that is of another time.
