Ball Park music is a six-piece indie rock band from Brisbane featuring Sam Cromack, Jennifer Boyce, Paul Furness, Brock Smith and Dean and Daniel Hanson. They have released two EPs (Rolling on the Floor, Laughing Ourselves to Sleep in 2008 and Conquer the Town, Easy as Cake in 2010), 7 singles and their first album, Happiness and Surrounding Suburbs, was released in September last year. They are currently touring Australia on their 180° tour and I managed to get tickets to the Brisbane concert at the Hi-Fi last night before it sold out.

On Sunday night, a friend and I headed to Ric’s Bar in Brisbane to watch the gorgeously cute Miss Elm perform. As soon as the music started, half of the people eating at the café outside came in to listen, and I know I was not the only person tapping my toes and wishing there was more room to dance. I would describe the gig as jazzy and theatrical pop. As a pianist myself, I have a great appreciation for catchy piano melodies in songs. It certainly beats the boring I, IV, V block accompaniment you hear in every other pop song ever written. It is this eclectic quirkiness that makes Miss Elm stand out as a fantastic performer. One word? Catchy.
