[Our Golden Friend]
Melbourne musician Poppongene, the alias of multidisciplinary artist Sophie Treloar, is looking forward to recording her debut EP in mid-2019. Having released three singles – “Do It, Girl”, “Belgravey”, and “Esky” – through local Melbourne label Our Golden Friend, Poppongene’s debut EP will mark a distinct step forward in Treloar’s artistic development. Originally from Byron Bay, Treloar is now based in Melbourne, and plays as Poppongene both solo and with a five-piece band. Poppongene’s music is idiosyncratic yet simply-wrought pop, and its key feature is Treloar’s vocal style: intimate and conversational but with an undeniably dreamy quality.
