METALS are a …. a …. well, just how do you describe them? They’re Australian. That’s a start. And there are two of them – producer Digital Primate (aka Melbourne based Christopher Coe ) and soulful singer Candice Butler. Other than that, I’m not too sure, so here’s how Candice describes the pairing and their music:
“Genre-wise, we’ve been called techno-rock-rap-soul, which really is just naming four disparate genres, and kind of lazy,” sighs Candice. “So we came up with a far better description of our own: ‘A robot android in search of the perfect beat and hip-hop diva biatch venting on the mic = Metals. That is all.”
METALS will release their debut UK single (‘Drop Your Guard’) on 8th November, but prior to that will play two London shows:
Wed 10th November – Hoxton Bar and Grill London N1
Thur 11th November – Yoyo’s at Notting Hill Arts Club London W11
On the strength of the single and the accompanying video, I rather think us Poms will be seeing a good deal more of METALS in the coming year. Judge for yourself ……….
