Wet - the rising minimal-pop three-piece-band from Brooklyn - have just announced that in addition to supporting London Grammar around the country, they will be making the journey across the globe to perform two intimate headline shows in both Sydney and Melbourne next March. Finally Australian audiences will be able to see what all the international buzz is about!
Wet have recently toured with the likes of Scottish synth-pop trio Chvrches and their performances at 2014's SXSW saw them emerge a strong festival favorite, dazzling fans and industry alike. The band have only just arrived home in the US after European show dates only to hit the road with one of the years most talked about producers, SOHN.
Wet have just released a new music video for "Don't Wanna Be Your Girl". The track is taken from their self-titled debut EP that is available now via Dew Process.
UNTIL THE RIBBON BREAKS
'Until the Ribbon Breaks is on the verge of something bigger' says Wall Street Journal of the once solo project of talented producer and songwriter Pete Lawrie Winfield. The band deftly weaves synthesizers, electric guitars and digital percussion and Winfield's moody, breathy falsetto that has won him famous fans, including Falls alumni and acclaimed hip-hop duo and now collaborators Run the Jewels [Listen to 'Revolution Indifference' Here].
It's the harmonies and undeniable melodies that envelop you when the Harpoons are on stage, one that houses bespoke marimbas deftly handled guitars and analogue and digital drums like two hearts beating. [Watch 'Can We Work This Out' Here] Twisting old-school soul vocals into the hybrid musical landscape of today the Melbourne four-piece write ballads that burst with energy.
