Bio

An eclectic blend of progressive power and psychedelic symmetry, Magenta Voyeur has been breaking the mold for nearly 4 years. Keeping the denizens of Brisbane captivated with groovy beats, soaring vocals and sweeping synthesizers is no mean feat, but one the band navigates with mastered versatility.

Their grandiose sound bleeds through two critically acclaimed EPs. Eventide, their debut, has been likened to an “interstellar, galactic highway road trip”, exhibiting a tangible connection to an array of prog styles and futuristic sounds. Their sophomoric effort, Moongalba, builds on the premiere, offering a multifaceted mix of psych, doom and funk.

A strong sense of kinship defines the band’s performance. Leon van Lieshout (Vocals/Guitar), David Keenan (Drums), and brothers Jeremy and Mark Cosgrove (Bass and Guitar/Synths respectively) work as a symbiosis, generating head-nodding, foot-tapping good times beneath their paisley banner of neo-psychedelic bliss.

Stalwarts of the vibrant Queensland festival scene, Magenta Voyeur have been regular tentpoles of Jungle Love, Progfest and Autumn Fest. Always exploring new frontiers, the band have pioneered their own festival experience, Psych Night. Consistently sold out, these cosmic evenings offer an intimate glimpse behind the kaleidoscopic curtain of Brisbane’s indie underground.

The future is now for Brisbane’s psych scene, and Magenta Voyeur is at the helm of a mind-bending trip into progressive territory. With a litany of local gigs and weekender festivals lined up, you’ll have many chances to see more and more of this ensemble through 2019 and beyond.
