Bio

Equally enigmatic and magnetic, Tether are a captivating alternative rock project that blend dark synths with vocal samples and edgy guitars. The band are quickly garnering attention as one of the most exciting queer acts emerging out of Perth, Australia after their debut EP 'Severance' received national press and airplay, with positive reviews for all three singles from Triple J.
The band has played a string of shows and festivals since their inception in 2018, including WAMfest, City Limits Festival and SOTA. In 2019 they supported The Beths on the Perth leg of their Australian tour. Showing no desire to slow down, Tether are quickly garnering a cult-like following with their mysteriously charming social media presence.

Visceral and brooding; sonically reminiscent of Wolf Alice, Manchester Orchestra, and Warpaint, Tether has a unique tendency to blend electronic dreamscapes with heavy beats and gritty riffs.

‘It’s easy to see how Tether have drawn comparisons to Warpaint, Wolf Alice and CHVRCHES, but this is no copycat band.’
- Little Indie Blogs (UK)

‘Quite unlike anything else… kind of like the amalgamation of Lana Del Rey and BANKS with Paramore or Moaning Lisa.’
- Pilerats (AUS)

‘Once again Tether are soaring large through the night sky.’
- Triple J (AUS)

listening to tether with any form of illumination just doesn't feel right. it's dark, writhing rock and the shadows is where it thrives. i love the last 30 secs here too for the big explosion and it could have gone on another 30 imo.
