Returned from unknown waters, it’s time to welcome back the slick new-wave pop drone of Jetsam Isles. Jetsam Isles are a Wellington band whose unique dirt-noise sound contains just a hint of shoegaze. The trio have made a name for themselves at live performances with their one handed guitar strikes, dominating and seductive bass lines and fanatical beats.
Jetsam Isles have been playing sets with the likes of The Golden Awesome, Pop Strangers and the Wilberforces along with Melbourne musicians including Steven Huf from Ouch My Face. Their latest EPs, Dirt Beats Noise Vols. 2 and 3, are soon to be available at http://jetsamisles.bandcamp.com/
Playing alongside Jetsam Isles is Diving, a 2-piece from Wellington, formed in late 2010. Their mostly-instrumental music is atmospheric and immersive, and at the same time energetic and percussive. They utilise an ensemble of effects and loopers to wrap up their guitar-and-synth-based electronic sound, which is melded with driving - veering towards tribal - percussion.
Also joining the line-up is Dial Square, who having originally started out as a 2-piece have recently evolved into a full on 4-piece band. Their guitar driven, British invasion sound will guide you through an anything-but-suburban fantasy accompanied by a triumphal live performance.
