Cremorne Theatre, QPAC

QPAC in association with Penny Drop and Frontier Touring

Raised in a Southern Baptist community in the Florida panhandle, Hayden Silas Anhedönia grew up with a mama who’d play hymns and Gregorian chants on CD while she cooked. By 2018, she’d invented the world of Ethel Cain – “an all-American girl trying to fit in and break out of the mould.”

Ethel’s a vessel for stories of hard living, doomed romance, and rides to the dusty nowhere on the back of a motorcycle.

The songs shade themselves in the dark shadow of the American Dream and burst into sun-drenched moments of guitar-driven dream pop.

Performed with a church-trained voice that could tame wild hearts.
