A Sydney-borne future classic in the making.
Downer synth-pop stylings that have New Order as a clear point of reference, but infuse the stuttering drum machines and shimmery guitars with a very Australian sense of anti-romantic fatalism. Some smart production brings these well-crafted poppers into the hi-fi field they belong in.
Featuring members of Aloha Units, Natalia And Her Naptime and Houseband. Originally released on Paradise Daily Records.
“Incredible ten track 12″ from Australian synth punks SEX TOURISTS. I’d place this somewhere between the excellent, postpunk leanings of fellow Aussies ORION and the fine tuned, pop-inflected hits of TOTAL CONTROL. A serious contender and one of the best Aussie releases that I’ve heard in recent memory. Trust me, if this is your thing, you’ll get plenty of spins outta this one.”
