Sweet Jean are Sime Nugent and Alice Keath.
This Melbourne couple issued one of my favourite Australian albums of last year – Dear Departure. A head-to-toe collection of charming, lush and melodic songs. A really cohesive and thoughtful group of songs, fitting together seamlessly and proving to be greater than the sum of the individual components, with distinctive vocals and strong tunes.
News of Sweet Jean will be releasing a brand new mini-album, Greetings From Goodbye. Featuring a bunch of pared back and sometime dark folk songs, the new release is highly anticipated.
The couple will be launching Greetings From Goodbye with a duo show at the Folk Informal at FBI Social this Thursday in Sydney, followed by full band shows at the Workers Club in Melbourne, and Bigsound in Brisbane.
