SWEET WHIRL

If it's a good song, Sweet Whirl can dance real fine to it. Previously a player in Melbourne duo Superstar and the beloved outfit Scott & Charlene’s Wedding, Esther Edquist proves, with her solo project, that she is a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter at the top of her game.

Sweet Whirl emerged in 2019 with a string of hotly watched releases, before dropping How Much Works, her debut album. Released through the thoughtful indie stalwarts at Chapter Music, it's a record that confidently carved out a space where beauty triumphs over bleakness and the personal becomes universal.

Tender but never precious, the songs on 'How Much Works' are the love-addled confessions of a seasoned party girl, covering intimate emotional terrain and nodding to the influence of Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Jean-Paul Sartre and Sheryl Crow.

"EDQUIST MIGHT JUST BE ONE OF THE BEST SINGER-SONGWRITERS IN THE COUNTRY"
— NME
