Without a distinguishable understanding of the pop and intensity, a silent video of a Lemuria show would appear to be that of a blistering hardcore trio. To the viewers surprise, turning the audio on they’d find the stage diving mania and screamers are really chanting “Maybe I should wear lipstick too” or “You fit in my skin, softest I’ve let in” as guitarist/vocalist Sheena Ozzella’s dynamic, melodic voice guides the unlikely chorus. Lemuria might not sound like they are from Buffalo, NY, but the band was proudly birthed there, following the legacy of an oddly eclectic, if not eccentric, music scene. When you loosen your ears to the sugary indie-pop, you’ll discover discordant notes, odd time signatures, and brutal riffs creating menacing yet catchy music. Their latest effort ‘The Distance Is So Big‘ was released on Bridge Nine Records back in June. Now they are set to make their Australian debut with a run of shows through January / February starting in Perth on the 29th. They’ll also stop into Brisbane, Newcastle, Sydney, Wollongong, Canberra, Adelaide and Melbourne. Joining them will be Melbourne’s Kissing Booth who have just released their self-titled EP.
