Dappled Cities @ The Farmer And The Owl, November ’13

Inside on the main stage at The Farmer And The Owl Festival Dappled Cities celebrated 10 years with a fun set of quirky pop.

It’s difficult to know what you are really seeing with Dappled Cities. They have some totally bizarre time signatures and off-kilt lyrics, but somehow they present as a somewhat serious outfit. I’ve always enjoyed the fact they don’t really rely on any formula for songwriting; instead the songs almost live themselves.

Either way, 10 years is nothing to be scoffed at. As a gesture of thanks they bestowed the Wollongong audience with a virgin new song: “Many Roads” – somewhat fitting title indeed.
