Independent Artist Of The Week: The Tapes

November 14th 2016


This woozy, romantic duo create music that will sweep over you as subtly as an afternoon breeze.

Sydney producers Mickey Kojak and Andrew Grant have combined their powers to form indie/electronic outfit The Tapes. The duo released their debut single ‘At All’ in June, and already the woozy electronic jam has clocked up over 2 million plays on Spotify.

Thankfully, there’s more where that came from. The Tapes’ debut self-titled EP was released last Friday through local ‘introduction label’ Nook Nook Records. The Tapes are scheduled to release a string of east coast tour dates over summer, including a performance at EMCPlay (part of this year’s Electronic Music Conference) on November 30.

Have a listen to the dreamlike ‘At All’, below:
