"A visionary of synth-pop moods and textures." - PITCHFORK
With its retro-futuristic synths, breathy vocals and dancefloor-friendly beats, the glittery electronica of Gwenno Saunders might seem all sunshine and starships. But behind it all is a deceptively clever singer-songwriter and the Welsh siren's songs are as gently subversive as they are catchy.
A former singer with The Pipettes, Gwenno's 2014 solo debut album Y Dydd Olaf immediately caught the ear of critics and keen-eared audiences alike, putting her at the leading edge of a new wave of Welsh electro-pop.
Totally Mild are a four-piece Melbourne based band fronted by Elizabeth Mitchell, a woman with an exciting tendency to sing in a falsetto not many can match, the band perform absolutely perfect, skewed, disjointed pop music that sounds as though it was handed down from the heavens.
