Hailing from Sydney, Pop Rock duo Retrograde present a sound and aesthetic unmatched by their contemporaries. The artistic vision of Samuel Edward and Austin Megier, Retrograde cleverly curate the sensibilities and sheen of synth pop with the raw guitar driven sound of alternative rock. Drenched with hook laden melodies and driving instrumentation, Retrograde’s music is infectious.

After releasing their debut single “You. Me. Sanity.” to an overwhelmingly positive response, Retrograde cement themselves as a force to be reckoned with with their sophomore track “I Don’t Wanna Dance”. Whilst influenced by the likes of The Wombats, Panic! At The Disco, and Everything Everything, Retrograde continue to push the boundaries both aesthetically and sonically.

In the midst of their live dates celebrating the release of I Don’t Wanna Dance, and with recording dates on the horizon, Retrograde are set to become one of the most talked-about newcomers in the Australian music scene.
