Stylistically, Gridland is like a hotdog pizza: repulsively satisfying. Sonically, they’re like a vintage computer: functional but obtuse. Artistically, they’re like a stranded explorer: full of ideas but isolated.
From their modest studio in Byron Bay, Australia - Gridland were always in the minority. Where local acts focused on deep, throbbing bass content, the duo pushed their oscillators to the roof of audibilty, splitting their eardrums in non-silent protest. Their many white noise generators echoed the whitewater of Tallow Beach (only a matter of metres away), and preset Samba and Rumba beats hinted at a tropical lifestyle that only existed on the local photographer’s postcards.
Where acoustic singer-songwriters monopolised the local venues, Gridland were banished to one-off appearances at failed bistros and tapas bars. The group finally dissolved due to lack of interest from labels and radio stations. The equipment was sold up to fund a key-ring and drink holder merchandise company.
