To create an artistic landscape requires an intricate craft. The artist seeks to reach its audience in a unique and tender way. If executed accurately, the process can unravel memories, transport you to a place of blissfulness or just leave you completely enthralled.

In the Australian independent music scene, we are fortunate enough to have artists that communicate this process exactly. To be specific, I’ve found four of them. They come in the form of men, and have banded themselves together going by the name of ‘perth.’

band called perth

Slow, alternative, ethereal, psychedelic sounds is what perth is spitting out. No, not the city (that too though), but the four-piece band that goes by the same name.

Matthew Saville, Justin Manzano, Jack Quirk and Michael Dolan are the members, artists and creators of perth, and are responsible for the magical illusions they so avidly generate. It may come as a surprise, but these boys hail from the city of Perth, Western Australia. Releasing their debut album Babes, Water, Waves in February 2012, their mixture of electronic pop with unplugged acoustic, mixed again with choir-like vocals and psychedelic rock, has never been so damn tasty. Go, listen and eat it all up.

In 2013, they released What’s Your Utopia? along with two singles Greasy Moon and Drank and Kites and Tomorrow. So intelligently constructed, these tracks are a priority for listeners. With open chords, soft shades, sparkly sounds and slick drum kicks, its a walk through your favorite fairy-tale that sometimes goes off route, and ventures into the dark abyss.

perth are a band for all seasons. They so naturally express an out of this world, ethereal vibe that is accessible to any human with half an imagination. Improve your health and well-being by listening to perth (yes, little ‘p’).
