T54 Announce Melbourne Shows + New Video for 'AC Parade'

T54 Announce Melbourne Shows + New Video for 'AC Parade'

Christchurch three-piece T54 are heading west this March for their first ever series of concerts outside their native New Zealand.

Playing 3 times in the city of Melbourne, Australia between March 19th and 23rd, T54arrive on the back of their recently released debut album In Brush Park and will be parading their wonderful blend of dream trash, acid guitar drones and spluttering fuzz pop with a selection of Melbourne's finest musical gems.

Having been up and down their home country since 2009 (including 2011's Big Day Out, and 2012's Camp A Low Hum) T54 have earned praise for their loud and intense live shows, loaded with charging distortion, insane feedback, robotic rhythms and wonderfully crafted pop songs.

Following four EPs and last year's full length "In Brush Park", they have been receiving cheerfully positive reviews and sympathetic mentions from the likes of Melbourne's The Beat, TheMusic.com.au (4 stars), Under the Radar + Rip It Up.

From that grim starting point, Mockingjay Part One takes the process a few stages further. There is very little of the film that does not involve the characters (a) being on screens (b) making propaganda footage to be screened and (c) reacting to what other characters have been doing on screens.
