Over the past six years, the Australian-English outfit SEEKAE have won a hugely loyal following and a swag of awards for their signature blend of electronic pop, IDM, post-dubstep, post-rock, house and ambient. Their stunning debut, The Sounds of Trees Falling On People, was anointed one of the albums of the decade by FBi Radio; assured follow-up +Dome achieved Mojo Magazine’s Album of the Month in the UK and saw SEEKAE nominated for four Australian Independent Music Awards. The band then took +Dome on the road, touring Europe, Japan and North America, culminating in a sold-out Sydney Opera House show with an 8 piece-orchestra. The Worry, released in early September, sees percussionist Alex Cameron drafted into full-time vocal duties on eleven songs that range across themes of nihilism, revenge, and – occasionally – the redemptive power of love. It’s a dramatic about-face that is exciting the band’s existing fans and earning them a legion of new ones. Italy's JOYCUT produce a mesmerizing and conceptual sound based on dilated and biting electro; you could call is electro-wave-tinted pop. Their new album Piecesofuswereleftontheground presents an astonishing lyrical debut. It's hardly a knicker-dropping missive, but good god they make mystery sound sexy. JEREMIAH MEECE, who performs as one half of THE-DRUM, will be playing music over the bar speakers as you get ready to party.
