Live Review + Photo Gallery: Hooper Crescent and EWAH & The Vision Of Paradise at Republic Bar, North Hobart 15.06.2024

On a cool June Tasmanian evening, two bands coalesced to bring a mix of classic post-punk to the stage of Hobart’s Republic Bar, the likes of which go to show that the genre is alive and well.

First up were Tasmania’s celebrated masters of gothic new-wave, EWAH & The Vision Of Paradise. Bringing their ethereal, cinematically epic sound, the band had the gathered audience spellbound with a performance that contained songs from across their acclaimed first two albums, Everything Fades To Blue and The Warning Birds. Along with a couple of new compositions the band were road-testing (and which may appear on an upcoming album later in the year) EWAH turned in a stunningly great set to begin the night.

Following on from EWAH & The Vision Of Paradise, rising Melbourne post-punk outfit, Hooper Crescent took to the stage as part of their tour for sophomore album, Essential Tremors, and delivered a set full of stinging anthems filled with angular guitars and keyboards in the vein of past greats, Devo, Television and The Fall. Their first gig in Tasmania, Hooper Crescent, by virtue of their polished performance, certainly won themselves over some new fans.

Both bands complimented each other, and the gathered audience were appreciative of the fine music on offer throughout the evening.
