RAAVE TAPES are using their self-branded sparkly dance punk to take the “bro” out of “celebration”, one party at a time. After a fifteen date tour with multiple sold out shows behind them, they’re continuing to take their reputation as a live experience to a national audience.
Following their 2017 singles “2 U XOXO” and “k bye”, RAAVE TAPES have enjoyed strong backing from radio institutions such as Triple J, 4ZZZ, and RTRFM, with both songs gaining a healthy rotation after their release. This national exposure has been amplified by the response to their endearing take on the Saddle Club mythos in the “K Bye” music video, the clip racking up over 100,000 views. This was quickly affirmed by support from bands around the country, supporting the likes of Northeast Party House, Hockey Dad, and The Gooch Palms.
RAAVE TAPES have additionally established themselves as ingenious organisers in their own right, taking over popular nightclubs in their hometown and transforming them into one-off festivals highlighting musical talent from around the country. This has been brought full circle in their transition into festival favourites, the past year seeing them take the stage at events including Festival of the Sun, Mountain Sounds, and This That.
Next year will see RAAVE TAPES continue their upwards trajectory, releasing a new single in early 2018 before embarking on another intensive touring schedule.
