Automata 06-15-18 (Live @ Oxford Art Factory)

Automata – a trans-Atlantic wall of sound and roots

Gig date: 15th June 2018

Venue: Oxford Art Factory Gallery, Sydney, Australia

Country of origin: Kiama, South Coast, Sydney, Australia

Members: Joel, Ben and Dylan

Support or headline: Support for White Bay (Sydney)

Good crowd/bad crowd: Crowd was good, just settling in and getting ready for a massive night filled with great music, fun and a little alcohol. Which is what you want on a cold Friday night.

Number of times seen band: 1

Crowd participation: There is no possible way you could be in the same room as these guys without realising they’re playing! They powerfully present as: two ‘axe’ slinging vocal brothers out-front with a drummer ‘up-back’ who plays like he’s teaching the skins a lesson.

With a Trans-Atlantic wall of sound and roots, Automata have crossovers from: US’ headbanging and classic metal licks and leads to Brit-indie The Clash style phrasing. There was plenty of dancing and lots of people were taking videos of the WHOLE set. Dedication! haha

Genre: Alternative Rock

Rating:  7/10 guitars

My review:

  • Great songs. Pumping, all of them!
  • Your sound is very unique and as-cool-as.
  • Please take this as a compliment: I could imagine that you would sell-out a world tour of bars where people do live Margarita and there’s a mechanical bull.
  • I loved every song you performed, it was awesome to experience a sound and look as unique as you guys.
