“Time Travel” is the debut single from new band on the block Partefacts, and taken from their forthcoming EP Lifestyle Blob.
Partefacts is the brainchild of Canadian multi-instrumentalist Christa Belle and Australian producers Lani Bagley and Craig Schuftan. If those last two names sound familiar to you, then good. Bagley and Schuftan also make up Ducks!, a band we’ve featured a few times here on the AU.
Partefacts came to life in Berlin, when a big night out morphed into a day of instrument swapping and studio experimentation. If you’re a fan of Ducks! then you’ll be a fan of Partefacts. You’ve got noisy bass, synths, and disco drums all wrapped up in a shouty post-punk package.
As with anything Bagley and Schuftan are involved in, it’s creative, playful and a lot of fun. It’s a wonderful sonic mash-up with a fantastic fictional back story to go along with it – not to mention the obligatory matching boiler suits for the band. Keep your eyes peeled for the music video to drop in the next couple of weeks.
