Spirit Level Colour Takeover

April 14 @ 7:00 pm - April 15 @ 12:00 am

Your friendly neighbourhood music squad takes over Colour Club for a loose night of creative music and big community energy.

Spirit Level is: a record label, an artist collective, a Discord server, a non-for-profit organisation, a vision of the future, an echo of the past.

It’s not really any of these things though – put simply, Spirit Level is some people. Some really good people. And those people are going to take over Colour Club for a night of creative music, showcasing the diverse and rich sounds that they make.

In alphabetical order:

CLARILOOPS (she/her) is the project of Ruby Lulham and, on the one hand, it is what it says on the tin: looped clarinet, supported by synthesis and embokdened by electronic production. Ruby’s work blurs the traditional with the modern, and she lists both Claude Debussy and Boards of Canada as key influences. Live, Clariloops creates waves of undulating cascading sounds, with rhythmic but calming results.

NIK NAVY (he/him) is a queer Melbourne vocalist, songwriter and producer who makes honest pop. Intimate and emotionally charged, his music tells of love, growth and what it means to be queer in a complex world. His debut EP Treading Water introduced us to his bold sonic world, which will soon further expand with the release of a new EP to be released on Spirit Level.
RIVER BOY (he/him) is the solo project of Narayana Johnson, also known as one half of Willow Beats, an electronic pop duo that performed sell-out tours across Australia as well as festivals including Splendour, Falls & Clockenflap (Hong Kong). His music draws extensively on his childhood and teenage years spent roaming creaks, forests and mountains in the Northern Rivers of NSW.

Narayana is also currently working on music and sound as the Audio Director for indie game Cult of the Lamb,
Melbourne-based sound designer SIG NU GRIS (she/her) draws from club, experimental and ambient influences to shape textured beats, always watermarked with her unique sonic signature. Her unique “alien rave” sound has seen her featured with mixes on KEXP Seattle, triple j Mix Up & DUMMY, with radio support from BBC 6 Music’s Tom Ravenscroft. She is currently working on her debut album.

TIM SHIEL (he/him) is an electronic musician and radio broadcaster. He is currently in the middle of what he calls his “Distraction Season” – an ongoing collaborative project which sees him blending dance and electronic styles on songs that combine intoxicating rhythms, found sounds & deep ambiences alongside contributions from friends including Genesis Owusu, Kaitlyn Keegan, Braille Face and more. This is his first show in Naarm with an all-new three-piece live band, featuring Jordan Pereira on drums and Kuzco on keys/bass.


This event may or may not be limited as per the current COVIDsafe restrictions. Sanitiser will be provided on entry and all patrons must show proof of full vaccination on check-in using the QR code provided on entry.

We live, work and play on land that was forcibly taken from Aboriginal people. There has been no Treaty with the First Nations of this place and the effects of colonisation continue to this day. We would like to acknowledge the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people, on whose land this event will take place. We pay our respects to the Elders past, present and emerging and recognise that sovereignty has never been ceded.

There is a strict zero tolerance policy towards racism, homophobia, transphobia, sexism, ableism or harassment of any kind. Please report any unwelcome behaviour to staff or event organisers. There may be some strobe lights used in performances.
