Australia’s Art vs. Science is descending on the U.S. for their second tour of 2011, which kicks off Thursday evening at the Electric Pickle in Miami, after which they’ll crisscross the nation, touring through the end of August. The band is also sharing a new remix from Brooklyn’s AC Slater, who reworked one of their unreleased tracks, “Higher,” after befriending the band on a recent tour. The band also recently covered Daft Punk’s epic “Harder Better Faster Stronger” live on Australia’s Triple J Radio, be sure to check it out if you haven’t caught it yet!
The band also recently released a remix of their track “Magic Fountain” from Thieves of Aon, Strange Talk’s remix moniker, which you can download here. Art vs. Science has built a huge following in their native country off the back of two independently released EPs (both of which have gone Gold & Platinum, respectively) and thanks to their off-the-wall live show that has seen them ascend to almost-headline status at festivals around their native country.
This is a band that makes dance music for Marshall stacks. They’ve also come to be known for their over-the-top music videos- check out the gravity-defying video for “Magic Fountain” here, and their insanely viral video for “Parlez-Vous Francais” here!
