Robomagic Live Presents:
GL are Melbourne duo Ella Thompson and Graeme Pogson, who together create a thrilling contemporary spin on classic disco, funk, boogie, soul and electronic pop. From 2013’s ‘Love Hexagon’ EP to acclaimed debut al-bum ‘Touch’, the band have earned international recognition from the likes of The Guardian, i-D, The Fader, V Magazine, XLR8R and many more.
Back home, they played a sold-out Australian tour off the back of their debut album, and have just announced Destiny/Reflect launches at two of Sydney & Melbourne's most iconic venues. Handpicked to support Chet Faker on his biggest national headline tour yet, GL have won over crowds with sets at leading Australian festivals St Jerome’s Laneway Festival and Falls Festival.
At once ebullient, melancholic, amorous, sweet, tempestuous, sexy, nocturnal, heartbroken and carefree, GL’s songwriting never loses site of being consistently inviting, stylish and danceable. ‘Destiny’ suggests that GL’s own will be equally bright.
Bounding out of the sleepy town of Matlock with unapologetic zeal comes this vital electronic trio. Patawawa blend blood pumping beats, glittered guitar riffs and biting basslines whilst maintaining a healthy knack for alliteration.
The three-piece have crafted a sound that stays true to the classic neon roots of funk and disco intrinsic to the dancefloors of the 1970’s, but dressed with a trademark small town cheekiness that can only be born of the quiet hills of Derbyshire.
