Bio

Bending your perception of what Australian music sounds like today. - Indie Shuffle

Beginning with a freshly discovered tenderness, and underpinned by an almost Joy Division influenced post-punk drum sample, ‘Quartz’ builds quickly in both tension and depth, managing to delicately balance melancholy with a powerful and repeating primal vocal that cuts deep in the heart. - Gold Flake Paint

Melbourne electronic trio RKDA has built on their 2015 releases ‘META’ and ‘Spaces’ with the release of debut EP ‘CS’, which is also the first release from new label Riot Expert Records. In March this year the industrial electronic outfit shared the first taste of ‘CS’ with brooding single ‘Quartz’. Written across various continents including the US, UK, Japan and Australia ‘CS’ demonstrates RKDA’s versatility and their growth in songwriting in such a short amount of time.

Another great taste of underground electronic with a dark twist from RDKA. I love the little breakdown at 2:00 and that guitar creeping in just after 4:00 as well, did not expect it but will gladly take it. For some reason the chorus gives me like, zombie vibes... You are glamorous zombies. Anyway, it's been great to witness your progression since META, especially going from a 1:50 to 3:5...

Anyway, it's been great to witness your progression since META, especially going from a 1:50 to 3:59 track and proving you are capable of filling that extended duration with some pretty dynamic elements.
