Having being asked to play the Parklife music festival after just one gig with his main project, I’lls, Simon Lam’s side project, Nearly Oratorio, came dangerously close to sliding under the radar. After Way Too Peaceful was played on radio station Triple J’s Home and Hosed show a couple of weeks ago, however, I am cautiously optimistic that his incredible debut EP, Showers, will get all the acclaim it so richly deserves.
