Tube Amp 101 from Perth Australia are a band you need to know in 2021. Blending together the sounds of post-punk and janglepop, the up and comers are fixated on delivering masterful sounds and taking their listeners on an intricate journey into an ever-growing catalogue. Currently a collective consisting of singer Kate, guitarist Phil and augmented with several musician friends. To date they have released three singles and two EPs, and are now working on demos for a full length debut album.
“Their brand of melodic, post-punk piano vibes is what catches your eye first. The slightly discordant nuances make you sit up and listen – It catches you completely off guard. The addition of the pitch-perfect vocals throws you into a wondrous cacophony of numbing post-punk pop delight”
