NIGHT TONGUE (Los Angeles)
Originally from Australia, now based in LA, the transgressive goth, post-punk duo create a dark mythic world of sex, death, horror and ecstasy constructed from modal vocal virtuosity, bright shimmering guitars, filthy bass, drum machine, synth and cello. They combine their energies to create a music of violence, prayer and transcendence.
THE ACADEMY OF SUN
Nick Hudson's psychedelic, gnostic post-punk orchestra has been active in various incarnations since 2012. TAOS has collaborated with Massive Attack's Shara Nelson, members of NYC's Kayo Dot, Asva, Matthew Seligman (Bowie, Tori Amos, Morrissey) earning acclaim from The Quietus, Mojo and BBC 6Music, for their mesmerizingly intense, cinematic performances. Nick, solo, in 2015 played at legendary NYC venue The Stone and in 2016 embarked on a two month tour of Europe and The Middle East with Toby Driver and Keith Abrams from Kayo Dot. Currently a five piece, in November 2017, The Academy Of Sun released Codex Novena', a hypnotic opus that found its way onto both the Dangerous Minds and Sweeping The Nation end-of-year lists. They are currently at work on a colossal new record.
Having received acclaim from publications like The Quietus and The Skinny for a distinct brand of dark electro pop, Elisabeth Elektra is startling and brilliant with a hugely charismatic live show, whether you’ve seen her before (appearing with acts like The Human League and Minor Victories, or at ATP or Kendal Calling Festivals) or you’re new to her work, be prepared for something otherworldly, mighty and absolutely unmissable.
