RETIREE - HOUSE OR HOME
BUY/STREAM

Australian group Retiree return to Rhythm Section INTL in 2018 with a new record ‘House Or Home’.

The musical project of Matt Crowley, Tori Holleman and Marco Vella; Retiree have steadily congealed their broad influences into a unique emulsion of strongly rhythmic and emotional music. From two releases, they’ve been described as “pared back 1980s comfort pop for all occasions”, having “a whole lot of criss-crossing rhythm”, containing “swirling synth flourishes, languid wistful vocals and strutting drum machines".

The album’s songs explore the theme of “house or home” and what that means in present day Australia for different people. They journey from an aboriginal tent embassy on the south coast of New South Wales, a retirement village, a one room flat in Ringwood and a sleepless 17 hour stop over in Malaysia.

The musical project of Aussie’s Matt Crowley, Tori Holleman and Marco Vella, Retiree make pop music that you might want to call 1980s new-wave-wine-bar, with its smooth rhythms and rounded corners (or maybe think: The National sprawling languidly on a leather sofa). Their latest – all synth flourishes and wistful vocals – explores the theme of “house or home” and what that means in present day Australia for different people, and it is a leisurely treat.
