The Renaissance Man is knowledgeable and proficient in a wide range of art fields, including painting, writing and making music.
When I asked Steve Kilbey to describe his latest solo album, ‘Sydney Rococo’, in one sentence, he simply replied, ”Pop music . Easy stuff to digest. Melodic”... ‘Sydney Rococo’, is that and so much more.
With a never ending list of musical releases, Steve Kilbey’s latest album delves into Sydney, Australia’s premier city, about love, loneliness, & about Sydney’s night and day.
The songs title track is a catchy pop-infused song, complete with strings, with thanks to, George Ellis, one of Australia’s elite conductors & composers.
‘The Wrong One’ co-written with Amanda Kramer from The Psychedelic Furs, with Kramer also playing Piano is simply majestic and heartbreaking.
‘Achilles Heals’, co-written with ‘Barton Price (The Models), Jak Housden (The Whitman’s),is dark, hypnotic and one of servers highlights from, ‘Sydney Rococo’.
The catchy, poppy, ‘A Night Is Coming’ is another instantly likeable song with the string arrangements assisting in making it such.
The instrumental, ‘Sydney Morocco’, is almost folky but has a strong taste of hindu attached in it, making it exceptional.
The poppy and addictive, ‘The Lonely City’, follows, however it’s the albums penultimate song, ‘Lagoon’, that simply sets the world alight. It’s a beautiful song, that engages in Sydney’s dark interior, of dealing, between Maroubra and Surrey Hills. It’s a catchy melody, anthemic like song, that warrants being played over and over.
The slow, melodic, ‘Traitor Signals’ concludes an impressive album by Australia’s most prolific ever song-writer.
‘Sydney Rococo’ confirms that The Renaissance Man has ‘delivered’, another exceptional work of art.
