US psychedelic trio KHRUANGBIN have announced they will visit Australia for the first time in 2019, hitting Melbourne’s The Croxton Bandroom on Wednesday 13 March, Sydney’s Oxford Art Factory on Friday 15 March, and Brisbane’s The Zoo on Saturday 16 March. The band will also perform at WOMADelaide, A Festival Called Panama and Golden Plains festivals.
The genre-defying Texan band released their sophomore album ‘CON TODO EL MUNDO’ at the start of this year, and embarked on sellout UK, European, and North American tours. Their live show has been hailed as “hypnotic” by The Skinny, and they earned the title of “trouble-shunning, sun-worshipping vibemasters” from NME. Australian audiences have patiently waited their turn to experience Khruangbin’s wild, Thai-funk-inspired surf rock – and now they’ll finally get the chance to hear these new critically acclaimed jams the way they were supposed to be heard: loud and in person.
“Khruangbin craft atmosphere music that never fades into the background, like some endless curl of smoke that keeps pluming upward.” – Pitchfork
“This is a record not only rich in beautiful psychedelic colour, by extension, it celebrates international culture and unity.” - The Line of Best Fit
“The open-armed Texans once again produce a cocktail of music meant for all humanity…”
9/10 – Clash
“…Get fully, deeply lost in the band’s fertile psychedelic world. Now is the time to take a trip with Khruangbin.” - ★★★★ NME
Transitional and esoteric in sound, Khruangbin is built from a wide range of influences, from 1960’s funk scene in Thailand, Persian rock music, and 1980’s Algerian symphonia, with a dash of disco, soul, and Balearic music.
Since their 2015 debut album, ‘THE UNIVERSE SMILES UPON YOU’, Khruangbin has been propelled to stratospheric heights, playing festivals such as Glastonbury, Bonnaroo, and Thailand’s Wonderfruit; and supported the likes of Father John Misty, Massive Attack and Leon Bridges.
The eclectic influences of Khruangbin have earned them fans from all corners of the globe. Their debut Australian tour will be a mind-expanding live experience for local audiences.
