Hugo Race, multi-instrumentalist and hypnotic crooner, returns from an intense European solo headline tour to set forth across Australia in support of his latest Hugo Race Fatalists EP “Orphans”. The seven city tour includes three dates in Brisbane in July, including the Junk Bar on Saturday 26th (sold out) and Sunday 27th.
Driven, passionate and charismatic, Hugo Race delivers a unique take on experimental blues, folk and dark-edge. Performing alone but utilizing samples Race creates ground-breaking, intense sonic soundscapes that merge folk, experimentalism, electronica and rock – compelling and hypnotic listening.
The new EP, Orphans, (out on Rough Velvet Records), is the third release from Hugo's Fatalists project, following last year’s We Never Had Control and Fatalists in 2011 and is available on iTunes now https://itunes.apple.com/au/album/orphans-ep/id824453173
