Argonaut to release single Monet Feb 25th


Argonaut to release single Monet Feb 25th

Female fronted 5-piece, Argonaut, were signed by Criminal Records after gaining interest on the London ‘toilet circuit’. The band’s self-titled album released late 2012 demonstrates a mix of their rock influences, including Sonic Youth, Garbage, Hole and The Pixies, and has already gained vast support from the Club Circuit.

From the guitar led grunge of tracks like ‘Touch Electric’ playing out at Club NME, Propaganda and a number of the other scene clubs, to the stripped back sounds of tracks like ‘Chemistry’, the album represents a band who are not afraid to experiment with their sound and emotions.

Argonaut’s recent music video ‘More Life’ depicts the band walking through dimensions in search of a second shot at life.

Lead vocalist of Argonaut, Lorna Lyons, has recently revealed she is putting her fashion skills to good use, creating special edition vintage items for keen supporters of the band.

Inspired by punk rock collage art, Lorna has been scouting for vintage items that she can re-create and personalize, all for the benefit of loyal fans. Additions such as black lace, studs and skull designs set the items apart from the norm, with cut out newspaper letters representing the glamour of media obsessions surrounding music and fashion.

All the items are created with hand written notes, much in the style of the ‘confession notes’ the band sold on their successful ‘Pledge Music’ campaign, which saw the band raise thousands to make their album.
