Country of origin:
Type of music generally:
alternative pop/rock, i think. (damon)
Most recent release, The Current Music of Brunatex (2006)
wow! who knew danielle dax had a somewhat less raucous twin with an australian accent? also a bit like heather nova in places. occasional flashes of kate bush. (damon)
piercing, danielle dax-like vocals punctuate great mixed electronic/acoustic pop/rock music. the instrumentation is mostly "guitar and keyboard with other interesting sounds." (damon)
Recommended first album:
cut ep is the only release we've heard
See website for availability
Highly recommended for pop/rock fans
Fiona Scobie—vocals, percussion, bass
Leana Kazmierczak—guitar on 1 track
some great alternative pop/rock. there's a good mix of songs on this album, from fast rockers to slower strummy-guitar tunes. lots of powerful guitar work, underlaid with some nice electronic noodlings. perhaps a bit towards the mainstream side of ecto, but by no means boring or samey. great vocalists, on the piercing, higher-register side of things. the lead singer sounds uncannily like danielle dax to me, but with a distinct australian accent. the music is sometimes similar to danielle dax's, but generally less raucous. there's a strong resemblance to some of heather nova's work, particularly in the title track, "cut" (both music and vocals). all in all, definitely recommended.

Thanks to damon for work on this entry.
