Bio

Enerate splashed on to the scene last year, dropping their first charming video single "Unstoppable". The boys and girl tinker with a glorious array of synthetic electro sounds, and fuse them with lively organic rhythms and a knack for honest pop song writing.

Bound by a love of gangsta hip hop, good times and Paul Kelly, the group have enjoyed early success in their first year, with "Unstoppable" spinning on Triple J Unearthed digital radio, and the music video premiering in prime time on ABC TV's RAGE program.

2012 brought Enerate's unique brand of synth pop to the live circuit, touring the east coast, and since making some iconic rooms bounce, such as The Standard, Oxford Art Factory and FBi Social in Sydney.
 Known for their vibrant on-stage energy, and interactive video show, it's not easy to forget a performance by Enerate.

As we ease into the summer, Enerate bring us their new single "I Think I Love". Check out the video clip here. Driving jungle rhythms and colourful synths pepper the song, with an infectious chorus that is impossible not to sing along to.

Early 2015 will see Enerate's long awaited debut record released.

Really love the bassy synth line on this tune, and it travels along super well. I find the vocals a little too reminiscent of Passion Pit, but overall this is quality!

Woah, this new version is great. Really like the elasticity of the synth work which keeps everything real bouncy while the vocals keep at a nice atmospheric wash.
