Brisbane duo Workshop only played their first show a couple of months back, but they’ve already released a cassingle entitled Repeat After Me. The catch (and there always is one) is that the cassingle is (or was) limited to a measly 15 copies. Never mind though, because it appears that a full-length cassette will release through Tenth Court in late August.
I first heard Workshop on Matt Kennedy’s 4ZZZ radio show. It’s a simple song with a simple hook, but the vocal harmonies have an ineffable, inhuman quality. Despite its icy mood the melodramatic synth lines push it into ‘90s euro goth territory at times, which is not an especially bad place to be.
