Fresh off the plane from New York City after working with Mark Ronson, Santigold, Sean Lennon & more, Tooheys Extra Dry: The Lab winners and SMAC award nominated Danimals return to Sydney to launch their double A-side “Hornet’s Nest/Christmas Worms Quest for Fresh Apples” (available now from iTunes from Speak N Spell) on Friday 15th January 2010 at Spectrum.
Danimals began as a solo project for 21 year old South African-born Sydney artist Jonti Danilewitz. Within months of discovery of Jonti’s music, Danimals had muscled into an adjoining live project, transcending the original concept for the squelchy-pop bedroom recordings & modulating into a brain-exploding, psychedic live experience.
Featuring members of Sherlock’s Daughter, Mercy Arms, Phrase and I Like Cats, Danimals take a focus on undulating rhythms and the deconstruction of traditional song structures with three drummers revolving around synth & percussion stations, and an array of weird and wonderful gadgets.
Danimals have landed supports for international artists Metronomy and Girl Talk as well as slots at the Big Day Out, Laneway and Peats Ridge festivals.
Joining Danimals on the night will be revolving Sydney super-group Fashion Launches/Rocket Launches, and special guests.
Tickets from Moshtix $10 or $12 on the door, if available.
