Argonaut - Touch Electric

from by Various




With an experimental catalogue to make Sonic Youth excited, Argonaut are about to release their second album ‘TRY’ on Criminal Records. Having already released their debut self-titled album last year, their sound has become known to combine super sweet sexy vocals with rocktastic guitar riffs, shrill synths for a rock mix with an alternative edge.

‘Argonaut put forward a good case for being brilliant..... Sounds like Siouxsie And The Banshees, while their commitment to youth, ideas and passion should be lauded and rewarded’
James Jam NME

“With the likes of Haim and Deap Vally already leading the female brigade in the music world, London five-piece Argonaut look set to become the next act to join them.

New single ‘Monet’, released earlier this month, showcases the abundance of quality this group possess, with their rock-oriented sound bearing a striking resemblance to influential bands such as Sonic Youth, Garbage, Hole and Pixies.

The thumping bass line provides a perfect dark and soulful opening to the track before lead vocalist Lorna Lyons takes charge with her captivating vocals sending listeners into a trance-like mode.

Argonaut have succeeded in creating music with the unique appeal of being suitable in any environment. For that reason alone, they’re likely to make a big name for themselves before the year is out.”
Matty Aston
