ROBERT DELONG ANNOUNCES FIRST AUSTRALIAN HEADLINE SHOWS!
The Frontier Touring Company has confirmed that electronic wunderkind Robert DeLong will bring his genre bending sound to dazzle Melbourne and Sydney audiences with his first Australian headline shows, alongside a highly anticipated Splendour in the Grass performance this July!
DeLong exploded into the cultural stratosphere last year with game changing debut album Just Movement (out now through Liberator Music), an ingenious fusion of hypnotic hooks, bursting beats and reflective lyrics that pushes not only boundaries but the listeners imagination.
Even the name of the album itself is indicative of DeLong’s unique and thought provoking song writing; our lives are constant buzzing energy.... molecules just moving together, vibrating and dancing their way into existence. The stomping single ‘Global Concepts’ has set Australian airwaves ablaze, earning ARIA Gold certification (almost Platinum), hitting #1 on the Australian iTunes Electronic Chart and becoming 2013’s most danceable anthem.
The album has also become a firm favourite with critics garnering worldwide acclaim;
‘Did I make you f**king dance?!’ When it comes to his debut LP, Just Movement, the answer is a resounding ‘Yes.’” – ELEKTRO
“Let me join the chorus hailing the new beat wizard on the scene, Seattle-born Robert DeLong. He's a guy you instantly know will make an impression on contemporary music. Four and half stars” - The Sydney Morning Herald
Drumming since the age of ten, when the Seattle born songwriter takes the stage seventeen years on, he has to be seen to be believed. DeLong loops and fuses beats and melody whilst utilizing a diverse and unique array of tools including MIDI interfaces, game controllers, keyboards, trigger pads, acoustic drums and electric guitars. But this isn’t just a cheap gimmick; every instrument DeLong brings on stage serves a purpose and is an essential component of the performance, taking the audience on an exploration of sound and innovation.
His high energy performances have also enraptured audiences at Coachella, Lollapalooza and The Governors Ball, making him one of the biggest buzz artists to emerge from this year’s SXSW;
“One man dance band Robert DeLong absolutely destroyed at a show on the west side of town. Already dubbed the next big thing by the likes of MTV, Billboard, and VIBE, DeLong is known for making music with game gear like joysticks and Wiimotes. Still, I admit I had my doubts about whether or not he could live up to the hype. But hot damn, that was a ridiculous set.” - Wired
Robert DeLong live is an impressive display of sheer talent and creativity that promises to be one of the most intriguing performances this year. Don’t miss it!
