Pleasure is a Sydney based music project that utilises distorted synths, irregular drum beats and fluid song structures to create energetic and hypnotic pieces that straddle the line of bright and abrasive. They have released 2 records “Saint Albans” and “Chop Wood, Carry Water” to international acclaim and have made a name for themselves in Sydney, Australia’s live scene with their iconic 6 hour “Endurance Shows.”
Their debut LP Saint Albans, was conceived and recorded in a small farm house in the town of Saint Albans, New South Wales, over 3 days from the 12th to the 14th of October 2019. The building has since burned down in the 2019 Australian Bushfires. “We came away from this session with close to 20 hours of material that we edited down into consumable pieces.” This is the case for all tracks except BRAIN WASTE 191013 which was left intact and unedited.
“Our sonic influences seem very obvious but we haven’t been called out yet. Mainly Boards of Canada, Black Moth Super Rainbow, Aphex Twin, Fuck Buttons, Blanck Mass and Lightning Bolt.”
