Live on the
One half of well-loved Sydney band Flowertruck, Greenwave Beth is the Sydney-based electro-pop duo of Charles Rushforth and Will Blackburn. Their music captures what frontman Charles calls “a dance of agony”: that space where we move to the rhythm of our own anxieties and desires.
Their debut EP People in Agony was written in the attic of a teacher's college-turned-share house Rushforth once resided in on King Street, Newtown. "We broke into the attic one day and set up a practice space without the landlord's knowledge. It had a really low roof, so I had to crawl around on my knees to set the gear up. I was the only one home a lot of the time, so by day I'd read, and by night I'd go up to the attic and write," Rushforth says.
Combining the restrictive and industrial sounds of midi-sequenced drum and bass with free form songwriting, People in Agony is a coming-of-age story that's anxious and electrifying at the same time.
