The fact that I wasn't aware of Fluorescent
until this morning is really a testament to the diversity and strength of the Australia music scene. Their style is somewhere between My Bloody Valentine
and New Order
. This is most obvious in their track Unfamiliar with begins with a primitive synthetic drum sequence which slowly begins to segue into a dense drowning wall of guitar. Really endearing stuff.
They have been on the scene for a few years and have played with Midnight Juggernauts
and Cut Copy
. You can catch them on the 4th of October supporting Ladytron
at their third and final Show in Melbourne at the Esplanade Hotel (I know I will be there).
