Banish - Tristan da Cunha     Punk, Alternative, Rock, Electronic / Beats / Industrial 15/11/2019
Banish are a moody electronic trio from Melbourne, featuring Christopher Gray, Sarah McKenna & René Schaefer. The eight-track debut album 'Control Yourself' is to be released in December 2019.
Tristan da Cunha is the most isolated inhabited island on earth. Travelling there takes 6 days (via cargo ship from South Africa), and landings on the island are perilous.

Banish have channeled this isolation and space to create an expansive, yet upbeat song which places an incendiary bass and synth duel into an envelope of circling vocals.

Other tracks by Banish:  Simple Animal

Melbourne's most notorious Skate Psych/Punk outfit. Smashing out bangers at blistering speed since 2019 - unfortunately too late to have featured in your favourite Tony Hawk's Pro Skater soundtrack.
Classic style skate punk banger that combines the tempo and energy of early 80s Descendents with the violent imagery of a Misfits song - with some trippy guitar work thrown in for good measure, Crank it up!
