Drawing inspiration from the sensibilities of pop lyricism and melody, Refraction melds the various colours of contemporary jazz composition and improvisation together into a compelling musical soundscape. Centred around drummer and leader Chris Broomhead’s compositions, the trio celebrates the sanctity of simplicity, upholding the primacy of a song’s melody whilst leaving space for collective ensemble interaction and improvisation.
Reimagined, their third album, will be launched on Fridays June 16th and 30th at Longplay in Fitzroy North. The recording will be made available online and in stores locally from the 16th, however you can pre-order it now on Bandcamp!
