People speak of tripping the light fantastic – if ever there were an aural form of this visceral experience, it is Australia’s DUBARRAY – a unique live electro outfit creating music that moves people and resonates to their core.
They have returned to Australian soil from a solid 5 months in Europe, playing shows and festivals in Switzerland, Germany, Austria, The Netherlands, Portugal and more to release their second full-length album ‘Visions Collide.’ The record will be released in stores and online Friday November 7th through MGM Distribution.
Inspired by the likes of St Germain, Groove Armada, Thievery Corporation, Portishead & Moloko, DUBARRAY deliver everything from groove based trip hop beats to punchy house, and tribal percussion all layered on a bed of electronic ambience and euphoric vocals.
Dubarray have been dominating the entire European continent for the past 3 years and have been returning annually for the festival season. They have performed at House De Elements Fest Austria, Festival Des Arcs Switzerland, Landjuweel Festival Amsterdam 2013, Lancaster Music Festival UK, Alstadtzauber Festival Austria 2012 and Didge & Bass Festival Austria 2012/13. Those appearances, combined with the home fires still burning, have stapled Dubarray as an internationally recognised force in the independent music scene.
Back in Australia, the story is much the same, with triple j love for the first two singles from 1st album Ebb & Flow (Verruckte Dancer and New Beginning), as well as festival appearances and packed east coast tour dates in support of the first album. The 2013 Musicoz awards saw them nominated 4 times and in the top ten artists on the night.
At the heart of Dubarray is the husband and wife team of Brett and Kate Gadenne. Their sounds intertwine and take life on the stage and on record. Their fire ignites on stage and combined with Damian Campbell’s beats create a mesmerising and entrancing spectacle that no-one can deny.
Their album tour takes place from October to December 2014, taking in QLD, NSW, VIC and WA in an epic run of invigorating and sensory-overloading shows, taking in venues such as The Espy, Mojo’s Bar, The Vanguard, The Motor Room and more.
Their brand new full length album – Visions Collide – is set to be released on 7 November 2014 in Australia through MGM Distribution and internationally online. Dubarray will tour Australia nationally from October-December.
