Sui Zhen launched her new record ‘Two Seas’ last night at the Grace Darling in Collingwood. A nice cosy affair with a crowd littered with fine Melbourne muso’s and a lot of love in the air to kick off her East Coast tour. Sui Zhen was uniquely dressed by Lady Petrova and supported by drummer Joe Gould and her very hip brother Dan Freeman on everything else. Playing tracks from the ‘Two Seas’ record in a more straight forward way, the sound was impressive. There is a tendency to file this vibe in the cutesy section of frankie mag but I think Sui Zhen rose well above the pack last night, not only with her self-deprecating charm but with a soulful heart that had the crowd captivated all night. More pics after the jump.
