Adele & Glenn – I Dreamt I Was A Sparrow

A cool folk pop vibe this duo has found. Check out the video and dig down to Oz for not-so-buried gems! How would you describe their sound?

Adele & Glenn are a two piece band from Sydney. They are Adele Pickvance and Glenn Thompson, formerly the rhythm section of the reformed Go-Betweens. Their first album Carrington Street was recorded in 2011 at Glenn Thompson’s Horses Of Australia studio in Marrickville.

They have spent the last 12 months locked away in a small studio in deepest Marrickville. With carefully collected instruments old and new, and a specially modified microphone plugged into a box with valves in it, they have pieced together a new Australianalbum of depth and beauty.Adele & Glenn united to perform their own material after a history of playing with some of Australia’s most well loved and iconic musicians. They first met in a practice room in Brisbane to accompany Robert Forster of the Go-Betweens during his enigmatic solo career.  Later Adele joined The Dave Graney Show. Glenn was a member of Australian idiosyncratic popsters Custard. Today, Carrington Street shines like a full moon in a city park.
