Kirin J Callinan
Guitarist and activist KIRIN J CALLINAN joins Laneway 2018. Walking the fine line between poseur and provocateur is what makes Kirin J Callinan such a fascinating artist. His music is berserk, brilliant, original. Pompous enough to cut through and engage, with the right balance of humanity to remain important. In 2017 we have seen Kirin release a second album (the aptly titled Bravado), tour internationally with Laneway co-stars Pond and Mac Demarco, and share a truly wtf video clip starring Alex Cameron and Jimmy Barnes, which has racked up over 4 million views. This follows a cycle of recording and touring internationally that includes supporting Tame Impala, a glittering set at Pitchfork Paris, and opening for Crowded House at the sold out Opera House forecourt shows at the invitation of Neil Finn.
