Archive : Broadcast Australian Tour

Lauded psychedelic pop practitioners Broadcast have succumbed to the call of their Australian fans and are joining the procession of the worlds best, biggest and brightest drawn in by the down under summer. December will see Broadcast’s tour Australia for the very first time.

Birmingham natives Trish Kennan and James Cargill have been the ever-present driving force behind Broadcast since 1995. Although Broadcast has taken on several different evolutions since its formation, growing to a very cosy six piece at one stage, Kennan and Cargill have always remained as Broadcast’s beating heart. Fuelled by their joint affinity for film, and electronic culture, Broadcast’s brand of electronica, samples and sci-fi synths provide a hypnotic soundtrack, balanced with the warmth of Kennan’s dreamy 60’s vocals.

Signed to the iconic Warp label, Flying Lotus, Grizzly Bear, Atlas Sound and Dangermouse, are counted amongst Broadcast’s growing fanbase, with Dangermouse sampling Broadcast on ‘Poem of Dead Song’ on the DM & Gemini album ‘Ghetto Pop Life’. Regularly drawing comparisons to a darker and edgier Stereolab, 60’s psychedelic band The United States of America’s influences are present throughout the Broadcast body of work

Featured on the soundtracks of ‘Austin Powers’, ‘Ma Femme est une Actrice’, ‘21’ and ‘Morvern Callar’, the engaging appeal of Broadcast’s psychedelic pop has enabled them to comfortably exist in the spheres of their passions; music and film. On the small screen ‘The L-Word’, ‘Skins’ and ‘CSI’ have all featured songs from Broadcast, with Simpson’s creator Matt Groening also hand picking Broadcast to perform at this years edition of All Tomorrow’s Parties in England for which he is curator, as well as the influential Sonar festival.

Popfrenzy are proud to present Broadcast in their debut Australian tour.
