Shock Octopus are a dynamic and introspective acoustic duo with members spanning both sides of the continent (Perth and Melbourne). The band play strongly melodic piano-based ballads around life, death, the universe and everything in between. They will be launching their new EP, Roam In Silence. A band with strongly activist leanings, they will be joined on stage by Magda from All Truism, an animal rights activist band from Melbourne. Expect a heady mix of originals and covers, with influences including Scott Walker, Dead Can Dance, The Decemberists, Tori Amos and Bryan Ferry.
