Bio

After a 1½ year hiatus, Squarehead is returning to the Melbourne scene with a brand new two-track.

Squarehead is the brain child of Melbourne music producer Tobi Yamamoto. After playing for various Australian independent artists, including 2010 Triple J Unearthed winners Blud, Tobi ventured into the world of production with Squarehead in 2011.

Joined by two friends, Billy van Duuren and Zac Timpano, Squarehead has evolved into a live act that combines the raw energy of a band with the meticulous layering of electronic music production.

Since releasing their 2013 debut release "Fables", Squarehead have performed along side many of Melbourne's most creative recent exports such as ALTA, Andras Fox, Halcyon Drive, Rat & Co, Willow Beats and Yeo; including billing at the boutique festivals Inca Roads, Castle Music Festival and Paradise Music Festival.

Co-produced with Melbourne's P.T. Parcel, the two-track offers the truest representation of the evolved sound Squarehead have developed since their roots as a solo bass-looping project.
