Melbourne MP3 Of The Week: ‘War’ by Gossling

Though the solstice is past and the days are getting longer they are, alas, getting colder. And we will, yet again, have to find a place to warm our chilled bones.

Nestled in the cultural goldmine of Northcote is a Melbourne institution: the Northcote Social Club. Long a home budding Melbourne musicians this venue has become so synonymous with gig culture that its name never gets a full read-out. In our speedy Victorian vernacular it will mostly be heard in a booze-soaked sentence like “beers-at-the-soshul-in-halfa.”

It’s here, in the wintery months, that a prolific (yet scarcely mentioned) Melbourne artist will kick off a tour of her new single ‘War’. If you haven’t heard of Gossling it’s probably about time that you do.

Singing with pixie-like tones, Helen Croome sounds like she should be sitting cross-legged among a ring of toadstools in her grandmother’s garden rather than performing on stage. There’s an air of fantasy in her voice and something delicate, otherworldly in her folk-influenced musings. Fresh from a national tour with Oh Mercy, Gossling will be in her prime — and will be a sight to behold.
