A band on the cusp of greatness; Playwrite, is a five-piece band from Melbourne, Australia consisting of Jordan White (Vocals / Electronic Percussion), Patrick Holcombe (Guitar / Vocals), Scott Barton (Drums), Sonny Igusti (Bass / BV) and Caity Fowler (Acoustic Guitar / Keys / Vocals).
They have been compared to the likes of TV On The Radio and Arcade Fire but I am going to say that Playwrite is a band that stands on its own. With the upbeat music in "Ferns", powerhouse vocals on "Animals Housed" and the relaxed melody of their latest single "Whittaker", Playwrite has something for everyone.
Playwrite released their first EP in 2011 titled ↟↟◯, followed shortly by Assembly in 2012. "Wittaker" is off their forthcoming album, produced by Jimi Maroudas (Kimbra, Eskimo Joe, Bertie Blackman) and mastered by Emily Lazar (Haim, Vampire Weekend, James Vincent). The album is scheduled to be released later this year.
