Bio

Freya Berkhout, formerly one half of Sydney experimental pop outfit kyü, has embarked on a new project with her brother, Elias, and guitarist/producer Danny Keig. The trio, collectively known as Gnome, create their music utilising a fusion of their interest in classical and world musics as well as a passion for electronic, glitchy sonics. They have been described as a blend of Sufjan Stevens, The Knife and Brian Eno, creating unique, inventive yet accessible pop. Having won the inaugural Sydney Festival Soundtrack competition for 2013, Gnome's debut EP 'See In Walk' is available now through MGM Distribution.

Great vocals on ...

Great vocals on this; it makes for something like a more harmonious take on The Knife - another ambitious sister/brother duo. Count me in.
