Dr. Sinha’s Jazz Lobotomy: Jazz and rnb/soul informed indie pop
Melding RnB infused hip-hop with heady jazz influences and indie pop, brand new Melbourne based project, Dr. Sinha’s Jazz Lobotomy, tackle the anxieties of growing up and creating a true-to-self identity in modern day Australia. Flirting with influences like BadBadNotGood and Mick Jenkins, this isn’t straight-up jazz. It’s jazz carefully excavated inspected, studied, sampled and manipulated. A secondary resource for the jazz-curious and research for the modern listener. Led by Indian-Australian guitarist Chinmay Sinha, who has finally become the ‘doctor’ his parents always hoped he would be. Fresh from the studio and due to release two new singles before the year is out; the Lobotomy explore themes of identity and culture in today’s Australia.
Beautiful Moana: Reggae, R&B, Soul
Lead by Tongan-born Reuben “BennyVee” Vatikani, Beautiful Moana serve up an infectious blend of reggae, R&B, pop and soul. Beautiful Moana have been writing collaboratively with a goal to create a sound that blends the cultural influences of the group. Sporting an authentic 9-piece line up, the band’s energy is sure to spread a healthy dose of positive vibes.
