MusicMafia presents Australian indie-electronic-rock band The Byzantines

Australian indie-electronic-rock band The Byzantines

The Byzantines, an indie-electronic-rock band conceived in nightlife from the sordid and shady streets of Adelaide, Australia. 

An emerging local force, the band are described as having a predominantly British feel reminiscent of Primal Scream and early Kasabian. 

The five piece are a result of late nights and fast times spent around Adelaide. They come from a variety of musical backgrounds in producing an excellent blend of electronic based music, with strands of psych-rock and pop intertwined. 

The boys have spent the last 12 months earning their stripes on the Adelaide live circuit, releasing debut EP 'ColourVision', and collecting a slew of local and interstate support credits along acts such as The Belligerents, Conics, The Infants, Sincerely Grizzly and Pigeon.

In late 2013 the band were also selected to perform at Revolver Bandroom (Vic) as the interstate feature act for the ‘Melbourne Fresh Industry Showcase’.

Their debut EP 'ColourVision,’ released in October of 2013 was engineered by Matt Hills (Fire! Santa Rosa, Fire!, Wolf and Cub) at Hillside Studios. The band enlisted the talents of Adelaide’s own Luke Godson (The Swiss, Luke Million) on production duties, giving their already attitude-laden sound that extra punch. It has been described by Music SA as “a brilliant blend of synth, fuzz bass, driving beats and well structured arrangements.” 

All 5 tracks from the ‘ColourVision’ EP by The Byzantines can be streamed or downloaded here.

Available Dates:

They are currently working on European and UK tour dates for September 2014.
