Bio

Melbourne’s BANTA. create organic pop tracks driven
by slick electronic grooves. Making music since high
school Oliver McNamara and Caleb Lindner now boast
a 5-part video project alongside a comprehensive list
of live appearances. These include; Daniel Elia, Denzel
M, Julia Lostrom, Cropley and Dual Manner. Driven by
the energy of these endeavours the duo went on to
release their lo-fi hit ‘Kohaku’, which has accumulated
over 190k streams. Their following release ‘Flourish’
was launched at their sold-out headline show at the
Grace Darling Hotel in Melbourne.

BANTA. are excited to launch into 2020 by
introducing a new aspect of their sound in their single
‘Hold’ featuring the angelic Jade Alice. This release
signifies the first in a trilogy of new singles each
unveiling the stylistic depth of the duo.

Not a wrinkle on the water when you listen to this new BANTA track. Lie on your back, float in the salt and feel calm.

That metallic kick drum and swirled palette of sounds shouldn't work together this well yet... here we are?
