About Sparrows

Drawing on sound collage, Sydney artist Sparrows creates electro-pop with a twist, making music using found sounds and manipulated vocals. With musical influences including CocoRosie, Lamb and David Bowie, Sparrows’ music goes on a trek from doo-wop on prozac to movie soundtrack exploring textures that fuse with her child-like singing style.

“‘Get To Know You’ is an intricately layered cut where dynamics duck and weave throughout an eclectic and mesmerising soundscape…” – Yen Mag

“Vocals so angelic in tone, a sense of euphoria is achieved through tastefully written lyrics. Taking R&B beats, soulful vocals and deliciously intricate melodic perks, Sparrows masters the fun, eccentric vibe.” – Purple Sneakers

“This soon to be superstar is already doing some serious representing in the electro-indie-pop department. Sparrows is all about the abstract, and she certainly isn’t afraid to be a little weird.” – Music Feeds

About Goo

Goo is a producer/singer songwriter from Sydney, Australia. Her music is a mixture of electronica, dream pop, dance and synth pop. From influences such as Grimes, Flume, Crystal Castles and Balam acab, her music will make you dance, trip out and feel peace and love all at once. Goo’s unique, futuristic beats combined with her bubbly, eccentric aesthetic is one show not to be missed.
