They both me in Dresden, Eastern Germany, where they started to work having a similar but not too similar taste in what they do and like. Inéz loves Minimalism and the puristic sound of a piano while Demian loves loves to mess it up. It is always sung songs and beaten beats enhanced by bright and bizarre electronic sounds. Like their sisters & brothers in the stone age they like to do it all by hand. Right at the spot. ÄTNAs first eruptive step on the scene is their five song EP named »ÄTNA«. Inéz and Demian teamed up with producer impresario Moses Schneider at Transporterraum Berlin to create five songs to be called »magic« (SZ) and »creating goosebumps« (SAX).
Tora are a 4-piece electronic band born in Byron Bay, Australia. The group formed in 2013, fusing plush, layered production and instrumentation with graceful vocals.
Releasing their self-titled debut EP, and following in 2014 with another successful EP in ‘Eat The Sun’, Tora’s soulful electronic music has had them compared to seminal artists such as Radiohead and James Blake.
Tora (Origin; Greek, meaning ‘Now’) have kept up a continual progression since their inception, dropping an array of singles and collaborations, all whilst building a rapidly growing global listenership.
Tora have performed at Glastonbury, Falls Festival, Splendour In The Grass, The Great Escape UK and Canadian Music Week. They have also toured both in Australia and internationally with artists such as RUFUS, Miami Horror and SAFIA.
As an independent act, the band have been championed by global tastemakers including triple j, The Sound You Need, Indie Shuffle and The Line of Best Fit, and attracted the attention of LA-based producer Galimatias who’s remix/collaboration on Tora track ‘Jaigantic’ has since clocked up over 15 million streams online.
On April 28th Tora unveiled their brand new single ‘Another Case’, the highlight track from their debut album ‘Take A Rest’. Written over a two-year period in various locations around the globe and mastered by Andrei Eremin (WAFIA, Chet Faker, Hiatus Kaiyote), the band returned home over the summer of 2017 to complete the album.
Written, produced and mixed in house, ‘Take A Rest’ continues Tora’s DIY ethos as an elevated and captivating landmark release.
Maybe trumpet, maybe electronics. Squeaking and creaking hiss of air, subfrequent trumpet drone and clicking metallic beats. A voice calling out of nowhere asking answers, shouting syllables. We’re happy to have GIW on stage as well! https://soundcloud.com/giwmusic/giw-never-is-always-album-snippet
