Following the release of their haunting debut album Mirror Mirror, Melbourne’s Dardanelles are gearing up for a whirlwind tour supporting much hyped Toronto outfit Crystal Castles, as they bring their twisted electronic sounds to Australia for the first time.
Catch Dardanelles playing with Crystal Castles on Saturday 15 December at Oxford Arts Factory in Sydney, followed by Thursday 20 December at Pogo in Melbourne.
With Mirror Mirror currently going into its second pressing, Dardanelles have just wound up an album launch tour, and have also been added to the line-up for the Pyramid Rock Festival, held in Phillip Island (Victoria) over the New Year’s weekend.
Featuring 11 tracks, Mirror Mirror is a lucid dream of unexpected hooks, mesmerising grooves, vivid lyrical imagery and filmic noise with Dardanelles combining shoe-gaze guitars, hip-hop programming, Detroit-tech piano, one man choirs, and Kubrickesque trance outs.
