Bio

Since their formation as students from the Conservatorium of Adelaide University, local Adelaide band Attonbitus have started to cover ground displaying itself as a fresh unique sound setting itself apart from the contemporary Australian music market. 
 
Led by singer-songwriter-guitarist Michael Brigante, Attonbitus fuses music and poetry to create a unique live show experience. Band members Shivon Diana (bassist) and Alex Walendy (drummer) drive the stylisation of this group through groovy alternative bass melodies complemented with clean-cut drumbeats hinting undertones in prog, grunge, and reggae. But most importantly what gives this band its own sound is in its versatility, which dances between soft and aggressive vocalizations. Primary lyrical writer Michael Brigante seems to hint a jovial, yet jaded message, which gives us an honest depiction of the times we live in.

I don't wanna say jaunty because I hate the word jaunty but I'll be damned if this isn't jaunty. Ugh, you made me say it three times.
