As her stunning new album ‘Broken Politics’ hits stores and online this week, legendary pop icon Neneh Cherry has unveiled her full Australian tour, hitting our shores this January including not-to-be-missed appearances at the Sydney Festival and Tasmania’s MONA / FOMA.
With a career spanning three decades and hits like ‘Buffalo Stance’ and ‘Manchild’, Cherry has always been an artist with something to say, stamping her mark on the world with feminist anthem ‘Woman’ and her commentary on world issues in her iconic hit ‘7 Seconds’ with African singer Youssou N’Dour.
Produced with British electronic legend Four Tet and showing yet another artistic transformation, Neneh Cherry holds a mirror up to the world on ‘Broken Politics’, showing the beauty and ugliness of modern society touching on issues like gun control, feminism and race.
“Few artists can craft such a minimalist, forward-thinking protest song some three decades into their career…Cherry makes the task look easy.” Pitchfork - Best New Music
Emerging with her confronting track ‘Screen’ earlier this year WWWater (Charlotte Adigery) has achieved critical acclaim for both the single and her hard hitting live show. The Wire describing her as “Solange fronting US synth rock duo Zombi with a glaze of mid-1980’s Minneapolis”
