Seattle based psychedlic duo THEESatisfaction have announced they will perform a small show in Sydney this October as well as their appearance at Melbourne Festival.
The band will perform in Sydney at Goodgod Small Club, on Friday 19th October.
Based in Seattle, Washington, Stasia Irons and Catherine Harris-White create their own distinct material: funk-psychedelic feminista sci-fi epics with the warmth and depth of Black Jazz and Sunday morning soul, frosted with icy raps that evoke equal parts Elaine Brown, Ursula Rucker and Q-Tip. The duo featured on comrades Shabazz Palaces' debut album Black Up, which was released last year.
Releasing their own debut awE NaturalE earlier this year, THEESatisfaction continue to be embraced for their singular sound, unflinching commentary and immortal groove.
PRAISE FOR THEESATISFACTION'S awE NaturalE
ALLMUSICGUIDE "Had it not been for the underground releases, this disc would be one of 2012's best debuts."
EXCLAIM "Put succinctly, awE NaturalE leaves listeners wanting more."
POPMATTERS "It's a solid record through and through, and a powerful testament to hip-hop's potential for challenging, inspiring and pushing beyond the boundaries of genre toward new and exciting forms of hybridity and interconnection."
THE QUIETUS "Feel their energy flowing through your mind. Satisfaction guaranteed."
PITCHFORK "awE naturalE, like Black Up, is a pleasantly surprising resurrection of the Pacific Northwest-via-Brooklyn hippie-hop that we never might have anticipated a few years ago."
NME "A satisfyingly rich project."
'awE NaturalE' is out now through Inertia
