It seemed that everyone who saw Pivot play at Beck’s Music Box last week came away discussing whether or not they liked the inclusion of vocals on some of the new material. In this interview Dave Miller and Richard Pike talk about how singing entered organically into the Pivot sound while they were working on their new album, which will be the band’s third, even though the album itself is still without a title.

pivot1If you’ve never heard of Warp Records you will undoubtedly have heard of some of the artists on that label. From the extraordinary Aphex Twin, Battles, to the more subdued glitchiness of Boards of Canada and the post-rock styles of Tortoise this label is synonymous  with the finest in experimental, ground breaking sounds.

So Being the first ever Australian Band to get signed by Warp is pretty big deal, and that’s just what Pivot have been able to achieve.  This Thursday the 18th of February Perth gets a special treat when Pivot play live at the Beck’s Music Box as part of the Perth Festival.

Releases include 2008’s O Soundtrack my Heart as  well as appearing on a bunch of Warp compilations.

We have two double passes to give away to their show at the Beck’s Music Box.

So how do you get yours?
