Melbourne indie-folk darlings Tinpan Orange are one of Australia’s most
loved brother-sister outfits. With the ethereal and mesmerising Emily
Lubitz at the helm, joined by her brother, guitarist Jesse Lubitz and
violin virtuoso Alex Burkoy, Tinpan Orange’s 60’s inspired folk has a
melancholy, candid and somewhat playful edge.
Emily’s distinctly angelic voice coupled with Jesse’s
harmonies and sensitive guitar melodies and Alex’s flamboyant strings
continue to occupy that sad and heart-warming world that is distinctly
Over the Sun (2012) saw the band win Triple J Unearthed with
their catchy folk-pop single Barcelona. In 2013 Over the Sun was
nominated for The Age Music Victoria Genre Award for Best Folk Roots
Album. The band gained further mainstream attention after Emily’s voice
was used on the famous Metro advertisement and one of the greatest viral
sensations the world had seen, Dumb Ways to Die (2013).
Having shared the stage with Martha Wainright, The Cat Empire, The
Waifs, Jen Cloher and Husky, as well as playing some of the world’s
biggest music festivals nationally and abroad including WOMAD, Laneway
Festival, Calgary Folk Festival and Winnipeg Folk Festival, Tinpan
Orange’s music has grown them a fanbase that stretches across the globe.
