Soft Robot

by Cooperblack

Australian three piece band producing rock pop tunes with fat synth and driving bass lines. Songs about driving cars, living with the rain, finding monsters in concrete, being born purely digital, being a nerd and the repetitive nature of alien abduction.

"Cooperblack certainly don't sound like your typical Darwin band. A blend of lounge, electronica, theramin and rock, it isn't what you'd normally associate with the 'top ends' music scene. The bands lyrics are just as leftfield. A kaleidoscope of ideas and themes straight out of art school; songs about German catch phrases, owning too many books (and not reading any of them), birds flying into windows, pop corn and more. Not a blue sky mine to be found among it." - Citysearch.com- Mikolai, August 2008"

Cooperblack are a Darwin based band laying out tunes with a post punk electro rock[ with a dash of the eighties]. Cooperblack receive regular airplay on Triple J, Mix 100 and various community radio stations around Australia.

The band in finer detail..

Cooperblack is an odd mix. Always evolving musically, the members of the band are really quite different people. Simon [The Hungarian] is the mad Professor.... bending keys and theramin the way Hendrix would have if he were born in land of no guitars. Oliver [The German] is the funniest...and has seen more bands play that we have had hot dinners combined..and brings those performances and memories to the band..often shocking us in good faith. Jeremy [The Australian] studied classical music and has vast music retail and back catalogue brain, often reciting catalogue numbers of record releases like he has turrets.......We like to have fun..and our music should be enjoyed..danced to..and thought about.......and destroyed.....and eaten...and breathed in...and spat out.....

We all love good music, from David Bowie, Nina Hagen, The Doors, The Sex Pistols to....Bloc Party, Interpol, The Velvet Underground, Pumpin trance and Electro hip Hop stuff like Gerling, Dj Shadow..and the list continues..there is so much good music to listen to...
