Perth duo Small Batch Audio deliver an arresting windows-down experience that combines dirty riffs with bold, melodic songwriting. Brothers Matt (guitar/vocals) and Sam (drums) have spent the last decade or so extending their musical influences and defining their sounds, albeit from opposite corners of the country and globe. Finally reunited in Fremantle, SBA brings together a shared yet fractured musical history to deliver visceral storytelling, memorable melodies and blistering hooks.
Finding solace in the simplicity of a two piece, the brothers have indulged in a new found sense of freedom, while also pushing the confines of their craft. Their first release, Animal, produced by Joel Quartermain and mastered by Brian Lucy (LA), offers a raw and emotive account of the world.
Influences: Simple Minds, Wolf Alice, Phil Collins, The Carpenters, Jane's Addiction, Pixies, Silversun Pickups, Joy Division, Talking Heads and The Smashing Pumpkins.
