Sydney folktronica artist Caitlin Park will be releasing her new album The Sleeper on the 2nd May this year, and she’s just revealed the new single “Hold Your Gaze”.

“Hold your Gaze is about fighting for someone, turning your lover into a partner,” Park explains. “Sometimes you have to try and convince a person to be brave. It describes a soldier of love, with a strong heart, with patience and persistence. With big drums and a big chorus it’s a call to battle.”

Take a listen to “Hold Your Gaze” below:

To celebrate the release of “Hold Your Gaze” Caitlin Park has announced shows in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne with support from The Phoncurves. Check out the full list of dates here:

Friday 21st March – Brighton Up Bar, Sydney, NSW
Thursday 27th March – Black Bear Lodge, Brisbane, QLD
Thursday 3rd April – The Toff In Town, Melbourne, VIC

If you haven’t heard yet UK trio The Staves have had to cancel their Australian tour this month due to illness, including appearances at the Sydney Festival and Communion Melbourne. The band has said “we are working on rescheduling our visit as soon as we possibly can” – so keep a look out for dates in the future.

This morning Communion Melbourne announced their replacements and they’ve outdone themselves – scoring Ainslie Wills along with a DJ set from Tigertown. They join an already impressive lineup that includes The Hello Morning, Jimmy Tait, The Phoncurves and Little Dreamer.

Communion Melbourne takes place at the Toff in Town on the 19th January. For more information check out the official Facebook event here.

Communion Melbourne have definitely scored a coupe for their first night of 2014. UK trio The Staves have announced Communion Melbourne in January as their first ever Australian show.

If you haven’t come across The Staves before (which is unlikely if you’re a constant reader of Timber and Steel) we think you’ll fall in love with their breathtaking, harmonic folk music and that Australia will too.

Joining them at Communion Melbourne in January will be Melbourne six-piece The Hello Morning, five-piece Jimmy Tait, indie-pop duo The Phoncurves and singer-songwriter Colourwheel.

Communion Melbourne takes place at The Toff in Town on Sunday 19th January. Tickets are $18 and are available here. For more information check out the official Communion Melbourne facebook page here.
