Laneway Festival 2015 Sideshows: Jungle, Perfect Pussy, SOHN & Ratking

Written by Tom Williams on November 3, 2014

A tantilising batch of Laneway Festival 2015 sideshows have arrived, with east coast headline shows set for a number of exciting buzz bands who line the festival’s 2015 bill.

Modern soul collective Jungle have announced two headline shows in Sydney and Melbourne, while New York noise-punks Perfect Pussy have revealed that their Australian live debut will include headline shows in the same cities.

London-raised producer SOHN will return to Australia in January for Laneway 2015, having toured the country in June 2014. The Vienna-based multi-instrumentalist, real name Christopher Taylor, released his debut album Tremors in April. New York hip hop outfit Ratking will also play headline shows while in the country for Laneway 2015, with shows lined up in Sydney and Melbourne.

Music Feeds readers can keep up with all the exciting sideshow news at the Laneway Festival 2015 Sideshows feed. Details of sideshows from Jungle, Perfect Pussy, SOHN and Ratking are available below.

Jungle

Jungle are returning to Australia in January for Laneway 2015, having risen to new heights in 2014. The band performed at Splendour In The Grass, and played sold-out sideshows amongst all the buzz. In her review of Jungle’s Sydney Splendour In The Grass sideshow for Music Feeds, Elise Cullen praised the group’s energy, saying, “Jungle’s catchy space-funk melodies made a leap from the seemingly synthetic recordings to an invigorating and explosive live performance.”

It’s amazing to think that the duo, which expands to a seven-piece in a live capacity, only played their first show in October 2013. Since then Jungle have played some of the world’s biggest festivals and released their self-titled debut album. Fans will be able to catch the band’s 70s-inspired tunes at sideshows in Melbourne and Sydney in January. Details below.
