McKisko – ‘The Hollow Boat’ (mp3)

Listen to

McKisko is a solo Brisbane performer who makes sparse avante-pop music. The repetitive and minimalist compositions rarely extend beyond layered piano or guitar lines with a hint of percussion, which provides the perfect platform for her vocals stylings that range from high and oft-operatic to quiet and breathy.

Live, McKisko brings the songs to life using loop pedals – which is not only interesting from a performance perspective but also in the way it brings transparency to the simplicity of the layers in her songs. It’s a cliche, but her work is definitely greater than the sum of its parts.

Her debut is released at the end of March so keep an eye out for what will be a stunning local release.
