Soul In The Basement W/ Sex On Toast
Sex on Toast are an irrepressibly charming 10 man organisation who specialise in raw early 80’s funk, hard-edged new jack swing, blazing improvisation and heartfelt blue-eyed soul. Currently residing in Melbourne, Australia, their choreographed stage act, complex arrangements, performative larrikinism and danceability
have won the hearts of casual punters and hardcore fans alike, all across Australia.
2014 saw the release of their self-titled debut album, 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), launched them at sell out gigs in Melbourne and Sydney, and three East Coast tours to rave reviews and ecstatic crowds. ‘Oh Loretta’, the first single from their impending EP
‘Ready’ was released in 2015 as a continuation of Sex On Toast’s sublime studio musicianship and songwriting.
Sex on Toast have 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 Internationally acclaimed comedian Neil Hamburger (USA), Hiatus Kaiyote, The Barons of Tang, Kate Miller-Heidke, Kirkis, Vaudeville Smash, The Bombay Royale and countless others. 2016 is set to be another stellar year for the band, with ‘Ready’, the first instalment of the two part
Rough/Ready series looming. This new EP harks back to the days of slick LA studio bands and sophisticated pop bravado, coupled with the energy and tenacity that make Sex on Toast undeniable.
