Blue Mountains band Sonori will support The Tijuana Cartel at the Hotel Gearin in Katoomba on Friday, October 28.
Sonori is an electro-acoustic four piece consisting of vocals, cello, guitar, keyboards, drum machines and electronics. Rich with thick layers of sound and pulsing beats, they have been described as "cinematic orchestral experimental journey music... post rock you can dance to".
The band’s musical inspiration comes from artists like Hans Zimmer, Philip Glass, Sigur Ros, Nathan Fake, Hardfloor and Laurent Garnier. The line up is Lulu Levins-Skehill, Andre Matkovic, Tim Mahony and Jasper Russell.
Formed in 2015 in Katoomba, Sonori quickly built up a loyal following on the local scene, appearing recently on the front cover of local street mag The Haze. After a string of hometown appearances, including a support slot with Sydney post rock giants We Lost the Sea, the band took a trip to the 2016 Psyfari festival and played a technicolour Saturday night set with a great response from the happy Psyfarians.
Sonori are currently working on their debut EP, which is set to be released very soon.
Doors to the Hotel Gearin gig open at 8.30pm.
