about

GO-GO SAPIEN synthesize their distinctive pop tunes from a wide range of influences including post punk, psych-rock, surf music and sci-fi film scores. Their live performances are visually dynamic, energetic and theatrical - characteristically featuring outlandish matching uniforms and live film projections.

The band formed in Melbourne in 2006 as “The Great Apes” and changed their name in 2009, just prior to independently releasing their self funded, debut album Merman. The album received a NARNIE award for Best Australian Album of 2009 from 3RRR's Banana Lounge Broadcasting radio show. Beat Magazine’s Patrick Emery described the album as "A slick marriage of schlock tinged psychedelic pop and college humour – it must be the product of evolution".

The launch of the band’s debut album was advertised by a two week revolving art exhibition at Brunswick’s Eisenberg gallery, which featured 11 visual artists’ interpretations of songs from the album. A video clip to the first single off Merman, “Destroy the Humanoid” was aired several times on RAGE throughout 2009. A live half hour set from the band was broadcast on PBS-FM in and Sydney’s FBI-FM in 2009.

"I predict that Go-Go Sapien will be some kind of huge act within six months! They are GENIUS!" (Dave Graney)

Building on the critical and creative success of their first album, the band played several interstate shows throughout 2010, expanding their national fan base. The band have played over 100 live shows since their formation and have shared stages with international and local rock ‘n’ roll luminaries such as The Soundtrack of Our Lives (Sweden), Kim Salmon and the Surrealists, Even and Dave Graney and The Lurid Yellow Mist.

GO-GO SAPIEN are set to release their follow up studio recorded album, “This Body Is Wrong For Us”, which includes an accompanying (album length) film, featuring numerous Melbournian musicians in the character roles. A national tour consisting of live performances and film screenings is planned, following the album’s release.
