Biography

MAGNETIC HEADS ARE BRIGHT, like the radiant, bleached and blinding sunlight of an endless Australian sky.

Formed by Jonathon Desmond Miller (a.k.a Des Miller), the sound is something distinctly from ‘here’. A heavy focus on jangling 12-string guitars, tambourines and twisted synth hooks is presided over by Miller’s penetrating and transfixing vocal delivery. At times very much reminiscent of the English new-wavers (Curtis, McCulloch and Morrissey) the band also calls on a whole bunch of Australian/NZ icons (The Go Betweens, Mental As Anything and Split Enz).

Known for captivating, energetic and precise performances, MAGNETIC HEADS are swiftly making a name for themselves on the Sydney scene. Sometimes described as a family band, the Miller brothers are thick as theives on bass and vocals, and the Kaldor cousins sidle up on the keys, guitars and make a great backing vocal duo. There is a sincerity that is borne out of these relationships, and the songs speak from a deeper place - offering personal truths and delivering cutting critiques with a philosophical sentiment.
