Christo Jones - does all the bits
Alt J, Flaming Lips, Dirty Projectors, Talking Heads
Unearthed artists we like
Christo Jones uses a self-built rig overflowing with guitars, samplers, percussion and pedals to perform, live-loop and record beautifully symphonic experimental-pop tunes. Soundscape, pop, folk and electronica vie for attention as arrangements swirl and crescendo under Christo’s voice.
It started as a performance-art project, with early incarnations wowing 2,000 people at Sydney’s TED Talks, and thousands more via YouTube stream and a Radio National Broadcast.
His first track 'Anyway' attracted solid reviews, was playlisted on FBi Radio, added to rotation on triple j unearthed digital radio, and scored spot play on other community radio stations including 3RRR and 4ZZZ. He cut his teeth at classic indie bars, Hobart's world renowned MONA museum (including a live to air on ABC Local) and the cyclone ravaged Darwin town hall ruins during Darwin Festival.
Christo Jones then set up his Sunroom Studio to evolve recordings to match his ambitious live performances. The first grab of this is the Gravity EP. The time poor may wish to focus on the title track ‘Gravity’, the crunchy rock of 'The Feeling' or the lofi bounce of 'Hold Us Still', while the EP provides the full sonic scope and story.
