Feeling the need to shake your booty? Been missing that sweet 80’s vibe in your life?
Well this December first, The Imperial Hotel in Eumundi may have just what the doctor ordered. Over the last few years a collection of 10 fantastic, young musicians from Melbourne have been creating authentic – and most importantly, good old 80’s pop, Yacht-Rock, RNB and Synth-Funk with an incredible infusion of true blue Aussie larrikinism that has been taking fans of the genres the world over by storm. The lads, known as Sex on Toast promise an unforgettable show, complete with ridiculous 80’s hair and wardrobe.
Their self-titled debut album was released in 2014, featuring the lead singles ‘Takin’ Over’ and ‘Hold My Love’, accompanied by stunning music videos from Peter Savieri (Queen of the Damned, He Died With A Felafel In His Hand, The Muppets) and launching them into sell-out gigs, rave reviews and ecstatic crowds. ‘Oh Loretta’, the first single from their EP ‘Ready’ was released in 2015 as a continuation of Sex On Toast’s sublime studio musicianship and song writing. Their stage presence alone is something to behold, with choreographed moves straight out of the 80’s, and a sense of humour all too familiar to us Australians. After the release of their simmering winter slow jam ‘4U’, Sex on Toast return once again to introduce the beginnings of their latest phase in the Rough/Ready EP series ‘Tonay’. The second single from the long awaited Rough EP is the new jack swing infused ‘Party’, taking inspiration from Bobby Brown, NPG-era Prince and Michael Jackson’s Dangerous, all thrown in a blender with heavy metal guitars & Zappa-esque chaos.
Sex on Toast are taking the opportunity to perform a rare sideshow at The Imperial Hotel while they are on the Sunny Coast for Jungle Love. The groups has performed across Australia at events such as Woodford Folk Festival, Melbourne International Jazz Festival, Adelaide Fringe Festival, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Apollo Bay Music Festival, St. Kilda Festival, and the Brunswick Music Festival, as well as sharing stages with luminaries such as comedian Neil Hamburger (USA), Hiatus Kaiyote, The Barons of Tang, Kate Miller-Heidke, Kirkis, Vaudeville Smash,
The Bombay Royale and countless others. So if you weren’t able to get in to the Jungle Love Festival to see them, or simply want an encore, then get your tickets to The Imperial Hotel show this December the first, with pre-sale tickets going at just $10 until 4pm the day of, and $15 at the door.
