This is a very strange and syrupy new track from Brisbane’s X in O, which is the solo vehicle of Kat Martian, who also plays in Brainbeau, Stag and Shooga, among others. According to her Facebook blurb, X in O “is obsessed with detritus and the unloved”, with the main concern of her music and art being “the reinvention of discarded materials”. I’m not sure what is being reinvented here, but it’s true that ‘Spiralise’ sounds like a screwed-up, slowed down and anaesthetised children’s television program intro, the synth lines glazed in fluorescent coloured ooze.
If you’re in Melbourne on October 28, you can see X in O perform at the Ladyz in Noize Australian compilation fundraiser, which will also feature performances by Bonnie Mercer, Lancer, Bleach Boys, Military Position, Onion and DJ Fuck Pokeno. Event details here.
