Dream pop, psychedelic folk, alternative rock ... however you describe the music of Mazzy Star, there's no doubt that the duo has soundtracked the lives, loves and visions of the Californian underground for almost 30 years.
Now, the pair is coming our way for the first time — and they're bringing a brand new, four-song EP with them called Still. It's Mazzy Star's fifth release. Of the duo's four studio albums, the best known is So Tonight That I See (1989), which features singles 'Fade Into You', 'Blue Light' and 'Into The Dust'.
The understated vocals of singer Hope Sandoval and the echoey guitar playing of David Roback remain at the core of Mazzy Star's sound. But, the duo's path hasn't been linear: the pair broke up in 1997 and reformed in 2000, only to split up again, before reuniting in 2010. Two years later, Mazzy Star's acclaimed live comeback at Coachella got fans excited all over again.
Mazzy Star's three Opera House shows — a part of Vivid Sydney — will be the duo's only Australian appearances.
