It takes a lot to get musical titans like NME, DJ Mag, and the Guardian to sit up and take notice; Ikonika, a young woman from West London, has done exactly that. Releasing her debut album in 2010 on the legendary Hyperdub label, Ikonika received critical acclaim for Contact, Want, Love, Have - The Guardian listed the album in their top tens albums of 2010 alongside mainstream stars like Taylor Swift and Erykah Badu.
Ikonika makes synth laden, emotive music for robots. As she said in an interview with Pitchfork:
"I don’t really know how to play keys so I just smack them until something nice comes out. But I want my melodies to speak. They’re simple, polite and to the point…I guess they're from my attraction to Pop and R&B hooks. I love things that are catchy and memorable, they do turn out a little sour and deranged but that’s what I love about messing around with synths…To me, that’s the whole point, making these machines express their emotions, just like WALL-E."
This will be Ikonikas first Australasian tour.
