AVIVA (9:30pm) + O.J. Mengel (8:30pm)

AViVA are Sydney based indie-electronic band. Their fusion of deep bass, intricate vocal harmonies and vibrant addictive melodies combine to form elements of the human experience at its most visceral. AViVA’s pulsing synth and raw, haunting lyrics leave listeners with lingering memories of distant forests bathed in bright moonlight.

AViVA creates a new, unique electronic sound – one that’s both lingering and fully alive, welcoming listeners to remember the beauty and importance of live instruments and the intricate nature of the human voice. The songs link back to a central theme- the dichotomy of control. This notion of control and being out of control—both when one is spiraling out of control and being in situations where one is not ‘in charge’ are explored both lyrically and expressed through their music.

O.J. Mengel

O.J. Mengel Combining the influences and attributes of raw stripped-down Folk, self-sapping Shoe-gaze and Indie (as well as healthy doses of Dad-Rock). Oliver Mengel manages to construct a warm, vibrant ambience, one that disguises the abasing lyricism through catchy hooks and sing-a-long moments. Sounds like: A bike ride through your local park on a spring day.
