Hailing from Melbourne and lovers of the Australian underground scene of the 80s, Contrast are excited to announce their return with a brand new single titled 'Livewire'. The track is the first single off their forthcoming debut album and was recorded in Melbourne under the watchful eye of Stu Mackenzie from King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard.

Formed in early 2012 through a mutual love of skateboarding and loud music, Contrast set to carry on the torch from their Australian musical forefathers, The Church, The Go Betweens and The Underground Lovers. Their Debut EP 'Less than Zero' was recorded with legendary producer Lindsay Gravina(Rowland S. Howard, Violent Soho) and released in 2014 to much acclaim.

I think to make lo-fi work, you have to have some really strong melodies, and you have them in spades. This is great!
