Hear My Eyes returns as The Murlocs perform their very own reimagined live score to the iconic Two Hands; Gregor Jordan’s crime caper starring a breakout Heath Ledger and Rose Byrne.
The dirty vibrant shots of the night life at King’s Cross to the playful hot and sticky scenes around Bondi. It’s so familiar and so exciting to watch. I believe our style of rhythm and blues will compliment the film perfectly.
Ambrose Kenny-Smith, The Murlocs
Set in a now-unrecognisable Sydney, where Kings Cross shimmered with seedy nightlife and you could make a getaway on something called the ‘monorail’, Two Hands stars a then–virtually unknown Ledger as Jimmy, an ex–street kid and strip-club bouncer. After misplacing a chunk of cash he’s meant to deliver for his boss, Pando (Bryan Brown at his absolute most Bryan Brown), he finds himself on the run from the mob, joined by the girl of his dreams, Alex (Byrne, making only her second film appearance).
The Murlocs are loved for their emblematic style of garage songwriting and captivating live shows. Formed in 2011 by King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard vocalist and keyboard player Ambrose Kenny-Smith, The Murlocs are a genre-bending Melbourne five-piece with roots firmly placed in their own blown-out, distorted brand of soulful, R&B-infused psychedelic rock. The band has released five albums, including the ARIA Top 50 hits Old Locomotive (2017) and Manic Candid Episode (2019) as well as their highly anticipated latest, Bittersweet Demons, released in June 2021.
