Sandro Colarelli is part of Electric Moon's production 'Floodland: Reworked & Reimagined'.
Brisbane production company Electric Moon lends its hand to a drastically reworked and re-imagined version of The Sisters Of Mercy's 1987 album 'Floodland', turning it into a dark cabaret.
Reinterpreted for piano, cello, bass, percussion and guitar, this rework of 'Floodland' takes the grandiose production and epic arrangements of the original and turns them into a much more intimate experience, revealing the beautiful songwriting of Andrew Eldritch and focussing in on the music's simmering tension, sense of authority and dark power.
The show brings together the dual lead vocals of Lucinda Shaw and Sandro Colarelli with a five-piece band to to perform the album in its entirety, along with a trio of extra songs from the 1984-87 era of The Sisters Of Mercy.
'Floodland' is the second album by legendary UK band The Sisters of Mercy. Often described as a a mixture of gothic rock and dark wave, it has come to be regarded as one of the finest albums of the 1980s, regardless of genre labels.
Electric Moon is run by James Lees, a live events and arts producer, musician and music director who also performs in the band Silver Circus.
Under the Electric Moon moniker, he has created many acclaimed events and performances including 'Ziggy Stardust', 'Transformer: The Album In Concert', 'In The Warm Room: The Music Of Kate Bush' and Fire Walk With Us: The Music Of Twin Peaks'.
In 2018, he musically directed and co-produced the Matilda Award-winning stage work 'The Sound Of A Finished Kiss'. James is also currently working in the role of Cultural Producer at Brisbane Powerhouse.
Along with Lucinda and Sandro on vocals, the band also features James on drums/ percussion, Mark Angel on guitars, Stephanie Ganfield on piano and backing vocals, Wayne Jennings on cello and backing vocals, and Karl O'Shea on bass.
Electric Moon presents 'Floodland: Reworked & Reimagined' at The Junk Bar (Brisbane) 7-9 May.
