‘It doesn’t get more illuminating than this.’
With special guest Tobacco Rat
Tobacco Rat, aka Jake Steele, has spent the last few years establishing himself as one of the most unique and distinct voices in the underground Australian electronic music scene. His eerie tones and industrial textures add a warped and intense context to his beats and melodies, and although he sets his sights on sonically exploring urban decay and experimentation through his music, he’s also very conscious of unleashing pleasing audio attacks on his audience.
Mogwai is renowned for transporting listeners deep into a gripping cacophony of drums, bass and guitars with a veritable wall of sound that peaks and collides with an intensity rarely matched. Hailing from Scotland, where the landscape shapes their swirling soundscapes, this troupe of doom rockers take you full throttle into an abyss where cinematic instrumentals prevail and nuances of post-rock frailty infiltrate. This is a most welcome Perth Festival return.
