Independent Artist Of The Week: GAUCI

September 18th 2017

Sydney trio Gauci create seriously smooth Italo disco. Soaked in synth and charming melodies, it’s expertly produced with a refreshing post-punk twist.

The brains behind these nostalgic dance anthems are no strangers to Sydney’s stages. Gauci is made up of siblings Antonia Gauci (Leftenent, Producer/Engineer) and David Gauci (Las Vagueness, Death Bells), with Felix Lush (Felix Lush, Publique) rounding out the dream team. It’s likely this mix of musical backgrounds that’s landed them with such a unique and infectious sound.

Gauci first graced us with their debut single ‘Hurry’ in late 2016. Unlike its title suggests, they didn’t quite rush to deliver us their next, but ‘Taking Over’ was well worth the wait. From the very first moment the bongos kick in, you know you’re in for a good time. The intricate layers slowly build to reveal Antonia’s heartfelt vocals, while the breezy guitars simmer below. It’s an irresistible groove that you won’t want to miss live.

They play the launch of Cobra Club on 19th September and they’ll be supporting Wafia at OAF 29th September and Donny Benet at OAF on 19th October.
