Retiree join Niche’s Artist Agency Roster and Announce Headline Melbourne Show!

Niche are excited to announce that Sydney / Melbourne trio Retiree have joined our artist agency roster and have released a brand new single ‘Continental’.

The Sydney/Melbourne based project of Matt Crowley, Tori Holleman & Marco Vella. The trio have spent enough time together over the last few years that their broad & varied influences blend into a unique emulsion of strongly rhythmic and emotional music. After a lengthy period of geographic dislocation and song writing, Sydney’s Retiree have spent a stint locked in a beach house somewhere on the east coast to stretch and solidify a bunch of new music, of which ‘Continental’ – out now through Plastic World.

Continental’ offers a glimpse into the ever-evolving Retiree world, a follow-up to their previous records – their debut self-titled EP through dance imprint Plastic World, and ‘This Place’ – 2015’s globe-trotting release, championed by London tastemakers Rhythm Section. Featured by the likes of Fact Magazine, Fader, Resident Advisor and The Guardian, Retiree have cemented their reputation for unique, 80’s tropical-pop tinged dance floor heaters and a textured headphone experience for audiophiles alike.

To celebrate the release of the new single Retiree will be performing a very intimate show at Boney in Melbourne. Retiree have released two 12″s both locally & internationally; Retiree EP (2013) on Plastic World followed by This Place EP (2015) on Rhythm Section International/Plastic World & their live set throws all their keyboards, guitar pedals and woodblocks onto a stage, resulting in long-legged convulsing to a drum machines under honest lyrics.
