Standish/Carlyon announce album launches

“A heady swirl of falsetto and intricately layered keyboard-gasps”
- Stereogum
“Our favorite record of the year to date…futurist melodies over some of the densest dub-influenced low-end sounds you’ll ever hear.”
- Flavorwire
“Conrad Standish and Tom Carlyon have proved masterfully adept at sluggish, sexy, subtly wonked vocal dance music.”
- The Fader

Futurist dub pop duo Standish/Carlyon announce album launch shows in Melbourne and Sydney in July/August for their acclaimed debut albumDeleted Scenes. These come after their upcoming dates supporting Kirin J Callinan on his national tour.

Conrad Standish and Tom Carlyon, both formerly of shadowy rock group Devastations, continue the process begun on the final Devastations album Yes, U, moving away from full-band arrangements towards submerged electronic rhythms and late-night altered states.

The atmosphere throughout is one of surreal chic. In rich baritone or impressive falsetto, Standish intones dark, absurdist lyrics over the band’s shimmering take on dub, a sensual, ultramodern gloss disturbed by deep vibrations.

There’s the pulse-quickening progression of Moves, Moves, the spectral faux-soul of Feb Love (featuring vocals from Standish’s wife Jonnine, one-half of HTRK), the icy grind of Gucci Mountain, the synthetic/fractured funk of Nono/Yoyo or the deviant denouement that is 2 5 1 1, a collaboration with Benjamin John Power of Blanck Mass and Fuck Buttons.

Standish/Carlyon have played Belgium’s Sonic City Festival (curated by Liars), as well as All Tomorrow’s Parties sister festival I’ll Be Your Mirror, alongside the likes of My Bloody Valentine, Pere Ubu and Einsturzende Neubauten.
