Soft-spoken Kim Churchill seems like an archetypal blond, blue-eyed surfer from southern New South Wales. But behind his laid back demeanour and even tone, the 26-year-old singer-songwriter is an extreme risk-taker. Churchill spent 18 months working on the follow-up to his breakout LP, 2014’s Silence/Win. The resulting LP, Weight_Falls, is a kaleidoscopic collection that will take fans and critics by surprise.
