Electro-vocal collective - BNDT- birthed and led by the beat-driven composition word of producer and long-time “the church” drummer Bandit aka Timothy.Powles.
Grown more by accident than design, Bandit arrives with music drawn from a decade of improvising with minds and machines. BNDT is unique flow, abstract but meaningful word. Pop moments tinged with melancholy . Erratic hifi - infectious lofi. Sound and vision that’s simply not in a hurry to capitulate or compromise. Rules are blended with random shortwave radio then joyously disregarded -
With a growing list of collaborators both aural and visual including Sydney’s most deliciously understated singers PhoenX AZ aka Finn Thomas and songstress Caitlin West aka Mz Lasting, BNDT finally falls from studio to stage, joined by fellow improviser Robbie Cain (producer-synthesist with Micra).
