Equally influenced by the complex pop melodies of Joni Mitchell as he is by the cut-n-paste aesthetic of Cornelius or The Books, Setec (the moniker of Sydney-based solo artist Joshua Gibbs) is a musical attempt to blend the organic with the electronic; to meld the fleeting flickers of the past with nostalgia for a future that is yet to pass.
On his upcoming full-length debut, Brittle As Bones, Setec utilizes found-sound percussion alongside looped acoustic instruments, fading voice samples and wailing, cascading layers of his own voice to create a unique, headphone-focused sonic universe.
Having already previously released the I’ll Be Good EP on Sydney label Wood And Wire, his music is already receiving great positive attention. It has been played on Triple J and FBi radio, as well as featured in promotional videos for Triple J’s One Night Stand on ABC.
Brittle As Bones will be released via Feral Media in August 2014.
