Favourite Gig: Haiku Hands

Electronic music collective Haiku Hands have announced their debut national tour. The Sydney-based group – Beatrice Lewis and Claire and Mie Nakazawa – has gained attention with their extremely boppy anthem ‘It’s Not About You’ and the funky ‘Jupiter’.  If you’re into strong multi-layered vocals, powerful lyrics and irresistible tunes tonight Haiku Hands in concert at Razzmatazz.

Divus Julius presents: Ladytron

With the passage of time, we have realized that Ladytron has been running for almost 20 years, and therefore they have stopped being that young Liverpool band that wanted to update the sound of synthetic pop – in the manner of mythical 80s groups  as The Human League– to become something better: the great synth-pop formation of its time, beyond the revivals and tributes. Ladytron have baggage, trajectory, important albums and hits, and their concerts have become increasingly rich and solid. Tonight at Razzmatazz they will present their new album Ladytron, the sixth already, and one of the most inspired of their long life.

The muses of La Musa: Tash Sultana

Tash Sultana is a dynamic young artist who has commanded world attention since homemade videos of Tash went viral. A true virtuoso, Tash was soon selling out massive theatres globally and playing at the world’s biggest festivals – no mean feat for an artist who just a year before was recording songs on a go pro in a bedroom. Since Tash’s grandfather gifted a guitar at the age of three, the self-taught artist quickly developed a unique style that has people lining up to see around the globe. Tash has mastered over 15 instruments, vocals that shine with a magical quality and a live show that needs to be seen to be believed. The one-person powerhouse started out playing open mic nights on a fake id and busking on the streets of Melbourne. Now Tash is selling out every headline show, from theatres to arenas across multiple countries and playing dozens of high profile festivals around the globe.

Tash Sultana last release  is ‘Can’t Buy Happiness’ – the first new music since the globetrotting phenomenon’s J Award nominated debut album Flow State. Tonight in concert at Razzmatazz.

Divus Julius presents…Confidence Man

It all started as a joke, but has now become a batshit crazy, worldwide sensation. Confidence Man have elevated the party anthem to a work of fine art, playing their energetic electronic dance-pop with – well, a healthy dose of confidence. Janet Planet and Sugar Bones catch the eye as the all-dancing, all-singing, freaking male/female duo, ably supported by the masked drummer Clarence McGuffie and keys player Reggie Goodchild (yes, they too are pseudonyms). These headstrong Australians made their official debut last year with Confident Music For Confident People. A banging party for sure then? We have every confidence. Tonight in concert at Razzmatazz.

Favourite Gig: Catfish and the Bottlemen

Defining undimmed ambition as the flag bearers for energetic, arena-filling alternative rock, Catfish and the Bottlemen will be presenting tonight their new album at Razzmatazz.

Their third album after a wait of almost three years, following 2014’s The Ride and 2016’s The Balcony(selling over one million copies between them), The Balance hits the playlists of a growing, ceaselessly passionate community of young fans worldwide. The response to recent singles, including Longshot (achieving 30 million streams and counting), has only fanned the flames of expectation.

Favourite Gig: Novo Amor

Welsh multi-instrumentalist, singer and producer Ali Lacey (better known as Novo Amor) released his debut album ‘Birthplace’ in October. Written and recorded in Ali’s home studio, ‘Birthplace’ is a collection of beautiful, melancholic songs which effortlessly transport the listener to another realm. To mark the album’s release, Novo Amor embarked on a lengthy headline tour which took him around the UK, mainland Europe, and a sold out run in the U.S. and Canada.

Tonight Curtcircuit present him in concert at Razzmatazz.
