The Reductors - Practical Girl - Internet Download
To hit play on a Reductors record is to enter a world of compelling contradictions; a world where sadness sits side-by-side with humour, bleakness with warmth, strange with familiar.
Their double single Practical Girl/Tremors, released in November 2018, is an arresting dose of post-punk energy and biting social commentary.
The Perth band has been honed from a loose collective into a slick four-piece outfit consisting of lead singer and guitarist Luke Nixon, lead guitarist Aidan Gordon, bassist Gareth Bevan and drummer Erin Gordon.
Through Nixon’s beautifully crafted lyrics, the band explores themes of social isolation, rejection, self-doubt and anxiety, set against bleak – and sometimes playful – imagery.
Part post-punk, part retro, The Reductors inject their music with melodic hooks and well-balanced harmonies, backing up their lyrical mastery with musical finesse.
Alongside musical influences The Smiths, The Kinks and The Velvet Underground, The Reductors’ sound is informed by literary and artistic greats like Philip K Dick, Man Ray and David Lynch.
The group stamped its mark on Western Australia’s indie music scene with the release of debut album Caboose in 2017, and the 2018 release of Practical Girl/Tremors marks a thrilling sonic evolution.

About this track...

Practical Girl examines how the pressure to conform causes people to wrestle with their own identities. It's a reflection of the impossible contradictory state most of us are in as we try our best to lead fulfilling lives while being governed by expectation and obligation. The song is grounded by a pounding, methodical drumbeat, accompanied by bold and brutal guitars.
