Bio

Enerate are a dreamy indie video pop project by producer Josh Graham, Therese Watson, Ben Fitzpatrick & Matty Niciak.

The playful project originated in the misty Blue Mountains, when Josh's love for The Beatles and Kanye West reached boiling point, and exploded into a happy-go-lucky mid tempo synthpop group.

A few years back Enerate dropped their charming debut 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.

This brought them to the live circuit, playing Melbourne & Sydney rooms such as Oxford Art Factory. Making the shows memorable with their live energy and colourful interactive live graphics.

2017 sees Enerate return with their new single "Half Asleep". The track features upbeat elastic synth arpegios which drive the song along, whilst the uplifting vocals of Josh Graham & Therese Watson soar above the beat. "Half Asleep" is the first single off Enerate's forthcoming album.

"Transit Lounge" is the 2nd single to come off "Good Times Airlibes" It's a dreamy spacious synthpop song about the want and the willingness to move forward to new times and new experiences.

Enerate's debut record "Good Times Airlines" will be released as their very own "Interactive Visual Album", A mobile app in which every song from the album has an interactive video. The app album will be released November 16th 2017.

Yeah, definitely has the nostalgia of summer 2011 for me. Very N&F which I'm sure many would appreciate heading into the holiday season!

This is casting me back to the golden era of Naked & Famous, Passion Pit and MGMT and I'm all the happier for it. Clean, bubbly and harmonies for days.

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!
