Astral People & The Ripe Present
Cassius Select “Wanna” Single Launch +
Moon Holiday “Rid U” Single Launch
w/ Turkish Prison & David Space
Friday 12th September, 8.30pm @ Shebeen
In a show of superlative talent across Australia, Sydney club-prototype Cassius Select joins experimental-pop heroine Moon Holiday on a national tour in support of brand new singles for both.
On the back of a knockout Vivid LIVE performance and the release of a split 12” with Sydney legend Tuff Sherm, Cassius Select has teamed with Melbourne’s Oscar Key Sung for their new single ‘Wanna’. Lauded for his blunted club experiments and melodically sparse interludes, Select’s reverberated sounds are designed for dark environments – perfectly antithetical for Oscar’s vocals to take charge.
With the new single ‘Rid U’ accompanied by her signing to Sydney management group Astral People (Collarbones, Wave Racer, Dro Carey), Moon Holiday continues to dig trenches in acclaimed experimental pop. Introduced via a debut EP on Future Classic, her empowered voice (swirling on scattered electronics) is breaking boundaries both home and abroad. Poised for a sophomore EP ‘Second Life’ is set to expand her melodic continuum, the single has already made waves having been picked up on FBi Radio and RRR as well as coverage on i-D Magazine and Vice’s THUMP Channel.
Sharing a taste for carefully executed, thumping pop with jet-black undertones, both Cassius Select and Moon Holiday will push their ideals to the limits of the soundsystem at hand. Advance your senses as Cassius Select and Moon Holiday perform together across the country.
