Alongside the release of their new single Northern Lights, New South Wales duo Hermitude (Luke Dubs and El Gusto) have announced their world tour which will see them play Perth’s Metro City on Saturday, November 2. Joining them are fellow east coast artists Haiku Hands and NINAJIRACHI.
The electronic-hip hop duo found their beginnings in 2002 with their EP Imaginary Friends, and since then have been nominated for multiple ARIA Awards, and won Best Independent Dance/Electronica album award at the 2012 Jägermeister AIR (Australian Independent Records Association) Awards for their record HyperParadise.
Influenced by the music of Major Lazer and The Presets, Haiku Hands are fresh off a year of festivals, including Groovin’ the Moo in Canberra, Splendor in the Glass, and Curve Ball. Their newest track, Dare You Not to Dance, was released earlier this year. NINAJIRACHI has shown success as a finalist in the triple j’s Unearthed High competitions of both 2016 and 2017, as well as topping charts with her singles Pure Luck and Thursdays.
Northern Lights is out now. Hermitude play Metro City on Saturday, November 2. Tickets on sale 11am Friday, June 21 from Live Nation.
