“I have listened to the EP about three times and must say that I am impressed with the sound and emotion contained within the compositions.” - Peter Merritt, 106.7 PBSfm. Hailing from Melbourne, Aural Window has been quietly building a loyal army of fans. The band came together as five musicians who have completely different musical influences wanted to create something that is heavy and emotional, yet melodic and memorable. Their live shows are explosive and energetic, with blistering guitars and soaring vocals, you can feel their passion with every thump that reverberates in your chest.
Singer/guitarist with Gomez.
Le Tigre is an American electroclash trio formed in New York in 1998 by Bikini Kill vocalist Kathleen Hanna. Initially envisioned as a live back up band for Hanna's solo moniker Julie Ruin, Le Tigre mixed the leftist politics and feminism of riot grrrl with fun electronic samples and lo-fi beats. Other members included Johanna Fateman and JD Samson. JD joined Le Tigre as a full member when co-founder Sadie Benning left the band before the Feminist Sweepstakes album.
The origins of New Zealand's Verlaines can be traced back as early as 1979, with the group's founder Graeme Downes took direct inspiration from fellow Dunedin group, the Clean to form a band of his own. It wasn't until 1981 that the group made their first public appearance with their initial five-piece line-up. The band have so far released seven full-length albums on three different labels, one mini album, three singles and two compilations.
