These guys are good. They're from Western Australia, and their music is heavy on the synths, with a cheeky bit of saxophone thrown in for good measure. It's the sound we've come to expect from a lot of Modular bands, but one that we'll hear plenty of over the coming summer festival season.
Their debut album called "Keep Your Dreams" came out yesterday, but Modular have been kind enough to stream it to us through Soundcloud. I'm a big fan of this one, so enjoy!
