LIVING TEMPLES (SWE)
A Swedish solo act based in Berlin, LIVING TEMPLES is recognized for his synthesizer-drive oeuvre. Influenced by sounds such as SUICIDE, HONOLULU MOUNTAIN DAFFODILS, XIU XIU, DIRTY BEACHES and KINO, notable in his cinematic post punk built of loops, samples, drum machines and random, eclectic electronics. Performed live with sounds from Japanese synthesizers from the 1970s and an old DDR microphone, his music is a part of a new-wave celebration of the alternative breakdown of sound, a merging of old machines and with new synthesis known to have emerged out of the sprawling Berlin music scene. Since his relocation to Berlin he's also known as the guitarist and keyboard player in French-German Synth-Wave outfit LISTE NOIRE (Genetic Music, DE) and his previous solo project THE BLANK VRS (Rainbow Bridge Recordings, USA).
He frequently tours Europe and after releasing the EP "The Pickpocket" in June 2016 he took to the United States and toured along its East Coast. The Sydney show at Oxford Art Factory will mark his Australian debut and for 2018 a European tour with New York City post-punk outfit, BOOTBLACKS.
The new full-length album "Against The Day" which has been mixed by the Norwegian producer dne Meisfjord (Tropical Contact High, Serena-Maneesh, 120 Days) will be available online January 31st via Muskox Productions.
