PIVOT

The first Australian band ever signed to illustrious Warp Records UK, Pivot are insinuating themselves into the upper echelons of experimental electronic-infused pop. Tonight their set includes songs from their highly anticipated new album.

Visceral and filled with surprising counterintuitive rhythms, Pivot's music sees warbling synth, 80s-sounding rock guitars and pounding drum interweaved with electronica to produce atmospheres ranging from lively to eerie to pulse-pounding panic. They have toured relentlessly across Europe and the UK, opening for Arctic Monkeys, Sigur Rós and famed electronic music pioneer Gary Numan.

Pre-Show Entertainment

Qua

Cornel Wilczek, aka Qua, crafts joyful sonic vistas of gorgeous improvised/experimental constructions and pop. Don't miss pure beat-based electronic that will get you onto the dance floor as well as folktronica and anything else this craftsman chooses to throw your way.

AFTER PARTY

Seekae

Seekae burn up the night with a vibrant live show incorporating drum machines, synthesisers, samplers, melodicas, glockenspiels and even spoons. Catch ambient, glitch and hip hop that surfs between the electronic sounds of Xela, Boards of Canada and Telefon Tel Aviv via the pop affability of Hot Chip.

Pivot DJs




Pivot's music is a fascinating hybrid that should appeal to open-minded indie lovers as much as fans of old and new school electronica. BBC  MORE >
