With the Vivid Festival in full swing, it’s quite easy to lose track of some of the other brilliant gigs going on at the moment, but there’s been one marked off in our diaries for some time now. Melbourne electronic duo Willow Beats have been an acid stag favourite since we highlighted them as a Band You Need To Know back in March.
The uncle/niece combination (Narayana Johnson and Kalyani Ellis) have just released their second EP Alchemy (which you can stream here) and are setting off around the country for a run of shows to celebrate. Their quirky and adventurous take on the electronic genre has been universally praised since release – this is definitely an act to pay close attention to during the back end of 2013.
