Double single launch - Moniker ft Georgia Mooney and Joan Banoit


SynthPop auteurists Moniker are launching their new single featuring Georgia Mooney from All My Exes Live in Texas. Label mates Joan Banoit launch their single ‘Bill’ ahead of their imminent, long awaited album release in May.

A night of brand new sounds presented by Lazy Thinking Records.

The world needs a superhero. Moniker is no hero! Moniker is the alternative. Moniker is a new project and brainchild of illuminati from Australia’s underground avant rock and pop scenes.
Born through collaboration in the studio, Moniker teams up with artists whose previous work is found on tracks by figures as diverse as Passenger, Katalyst, Sarah McLeod, Jack Ladder, Tina Harrod, Joan Banoit and even ARIA nominated jazz.

Joan Banoit:
Informed as much by the cutting-edge electronica of Jlin, Arca, Burial and Autechre as they are classic synth pop, art rock and modern composition Joan Banoit is the stage name of songwriter, composer, arranger and ex St Mary’s choirboy Julian Bright. Bursting onto the scene several years ago with a series of Marrickville warehouse gigs, they signed to new Sydney label Lazy Thinking in 2017 and released their debut single and video ‘Bet Me’ in June 2018, followed by ‘Mount Agony’ in October 2018, with an album to follow.

Joan Banoit 'Mount Agony' Single Launch with Gussy


Following the release of their debut single ‘Bet Me’ in July (which was described by Triple J as ‘…. sounding like the universe’) Joan Banoit launch the epic, electronic baroque pop soundscapes of their second single ‘Mount Agony’ off their forthcoming debut album. Informed as much by the modern electronica of Jlin, Arca, Burial and Autechre as they are classic synth pop, art rock and modern composition, Joan Banoit’s uncategorisable and enormous live sound (replete with a new four piece band) should provide something quite magical in the atmospheric intimacy of our stage.

Gussy is a Sydney based producer, songwriter and performer whose left-of-centre pop music incidentally advocates for, and challenges the way queer (particularly gender non-conforming and transgender) narratives are consumed by a non-queer/cis audience. Last year they released their singles 'Mornings' and 'In Order To Love', with support from the likes of the FADER, VICE and PAPER Magazine and after a hiatus they are preparing for the release of their debut EP.

Joan Banoit's debut single 'Bet Me' is the much anticipated first release from Lazy Thinking, the Sydney based label created by FBi Radio co-founder Cass Wilkinson, composer/producer Jim Flanagan and Sydney food personality and music freak Chrissy Flanagan.

After spending the last few years building a cult underground following, Joan Banoit will be launching their first single and video ahead of debut album 'Clerical' out later thus year. The new material will showcase the output of a 12 month development period in the studio with Sydney producer Artefact, along with composer/mixer/engineer Stu Hunter and a host of cutting edge Sydney musicians playing everything from drums to flugelhorn, trumpet and trombone.

Informed as much by the innovative electronica of Jlin, Arca, Burial and Autechre as they are classic synth pop, art rock and contemporary composition, swing by the Chippo on Friday the 13th for an appropriately spine tingling, utterly unique and thrilling take on contemporary music.

Joining Joan Banoit will be an extremely special instrumental set by Marcus Whale performing as 'Marcus Not Singing' and exciting new vocal innovator Ces Hotbake.
