Doors open: 7:00pm
Entry: R18

Cover charge: $$15 presal

Growing up in Murrays Bay, Auckland and now Sydney based, Sarah Belkner has been making a name for herself over the pond and has just released her beautifully crafted empathetic world of a debut album BUT YOU ARE, BUT IT HAS.

She will be heading to New Zealand for one special album launch show, Tuesday 28th Feb at The Winecellar, Auckland.

BYABIH is a dreamscape indie pop record that ferries catchy, emotional vocal hooks to a rich world of complex, subtle and layered arrangements, released through MGM.

You can hear it here:

Already BYABIH has been named Double J album of the week and the video for single ‘Cellophane’ premiered by Rolling Stone.

Drawing attention for her enigmatic live performances Belkner recently supported OLYMPIA on her national Australian album tour and toured the UK & Europe opening for Sarah Blasko.

The album is a true body of work, that has a new level of majestic production and ingenuity. Produced by Sarah Belkner and her husband, highly renowned engineer Richard Belkner, at their studio Free Energy Device in Camperdown, Sydney.

BUT YOU ARE, BUT IT HAS, is both intricate and clear in its songwriting, performance and production. A refreshing alternative somewhere between pop, baroque and electronic in a body of great songwriting.

The musicianship throughout is astounding, but never thrust in your face. It’s mature, timeless pop that nails those vital core elements and adds a little extra to keep things interesting.
- DAN CONDON, Double J

‘It's a genuinely surprising and delightfully adventurous album’

“A pop artist who resists the urge to crunch silly beats into it. Assured, fragile, tender, sexy” -MELBOURNE AGE

“It is clear she has something valuable to contribute to the music industry”

“A gorgeous piece of stripped back, slightly broken Indie pop, with enough quirk to ensure it haunts your brain for days – MUSIC FEEDS

“This baroque pop gem” - Lachlan Wyllie, FBi RADIO
