This week we’re winding back 16 years for Perth band Little Birdy.
They were the band that first introduced us to the unmistakable song writing and voice of Katy Steele, whose pop songs have always walked that exquisite line between joy and heartbreak.
The triple j live music team recorded this set in early 2005 in front of a hometown crowd at Curtin University in Perth.
The band had released their debut album Big Big Love a few months prior, and a couple of brilliant EPs before that.
They’d had 5 songs across two Hottest 100 countdowns and a stack of ARIA nominations.
You’ll hear all their big early songs in this set: ‘Relapse’, ‘Beautiful To Me’, ‘Tonight’s The Night’, ‘Baby Blue’ and more.
Listen Tuesday from 6pm AEDT, Saturday from midday or On Demand.
