LADYSLUG are multi-dimensional freaks. They roll in the realm of nu-jazz, navigating between the chaos and calm of their monstrous tunes.
Their songs are collisions of an explosive vocal palette, lyrics laden in ironic hyperbole, polyrhythmic keys and high-functioning harmony, held down by a phat rhythm section fascinated with quintuplets.
Their guerrilla musicianship and creative prowess are makin’ waves along the Australian east coast, seeing Ladyslug play Falls Festival Byron Bay in 17/18.
Sprung from the loins of the Northern NSW in 2016, the band made their international debut at Gig on The Green, at the Australian Embassy in Jakarta in August 2017, alongside Australian heavy-weights, Vallis Alps.
Ladyslug live performances are fire. Kodi blazes as front woman on an island of her own making at the fore, voice rising, crashing, entrancing and confronting. Lachy sweats life into the kit. Luke kills a synth solo, with metric modulations locking into snazzy drum fills. Ben holds the fort on bass, technical ability at home in jazz or prog scenes.
Playing Falls Fest, Mullum Music Fest, Bello Winter Music Fest, and bangin’ local shows in Australia, Ladyslug is poised to pounce.
