Bio

Coming out of the Sydney underground, Brackets is a 3-piece psychedelic synth band that mashes big beats, warped guitar and thick synth bass lines. Forming in 2008 at the This Is Not Art Festival, Brackets share a love of abstract sounds and dance. In late 2009 they teamed up with producer Richie Belkner (engineer for Triosk and Pivot) to record their debut EP, Topsy Swervy and have made a range of appearances including Peats Ridge Festival 09-10, High and Dry Festival 09, Newtown Festival 08 and played a diverse range of shows with contemporaries Seekae, Monk Fly, Unkle Ho, El Gusto and Ghoul.

A little bit kraut, a little bit post-punk and a whole lotta awesome.

These guys don't sound much like the rest of the Aussie music scene at the moment, which is to say they favour the electronic to the acoustic and their influences aren't immediately aparrent. I'm intgriuged.

The synth sounds are awesome, this track would be at home in a club scene in the movie 'Blade Runner'. Brackets are traversing territory between post-rock/punk and electronica to great effect.
