Bio

Grievous Bodily Calm are a five-piece instrumental band from Perth, Western Australia.

Their genre-blending signature instrumental sound and high energy live show infuses IDM,
beat music and jazz improvisation with modern electronic production and has seen them
share stages with acts such as The Avalanches, Hiatus Kaiyote, Kaiit, Beach House and the
legendary Mulatu Astatke as well as numerous festival appearances and sold out headline
shows off the back of their acclaimed 2019 independent release Repel - a melting pot of
lyrical melodies and intricate beats with a focus on conveying emotion through expressive
compositions. The release was highlighted by Bandcamp’s ‘New & Notable’ and was
nominated for Album of the Year at the 2019 Western Australian Music Awards.

2020 will see the release of GBC’s anticipated follow up with the first offering in the form of
single Sync Step - an interpretation of house music through the GBC lens featuring a blazing drum take, harsh synths and soaring melodies to thread a dynamic narrative.

The band will embark on their first ever national tour in April to promote the release of the
single with shows in Sydney, Melbourne & Perth with extensive national touring to follow
throughout the year further highlighting them as one of Australia’s most exciting and forward thinking musical outfits.

Do you know how much I love you? When those horns come it it's like pure Jaga Jazzist fireworks. Nothing but smiles listening to this.

Clear the d-floor. I'm cutting shapes.

Psychedelic, Dance floor, Jazz beats with flared disco pants on a yacht.
