'If there was ever an inducement for more women to take the stage, it's the mere fact punters love women who rock. Witness the numbers who have arrived in time for the Modular Lounge set and the response that greeted the opening bars of their first song. Keeping things interesting and sharing vocals between sisters Sophie and Greer Turner, this four-piece band played a solid set. The band fended off the "you'se girls are hot!" shouts from the audience and decared their love of the amber fluid. Bantering with the crowd, Sophie and Greer introduced each song letting us know what we were in for. Definitely a band to watch.' - Fiona Cameron - Drum Media

Bio

Sydney based Modular Lounge have been playing the touring circuit consistently for the last 2½ years. The line up consists of Greer Turner (guitar/vocals), Sophie Turner, (vocals/guitar), Joel Werner (bass), and the most recent addition, Joe Isaac (drums). Their music has been described as everything from catchy melodic pop to powerful indie rock.

The vocals are shared by Sophie and Greer, and that unique quality of siblings harmonising is a dramatic contrast to their crunchy interweaving guitars.

From early on, Modular Lounge decided that they wanted to shine as a live band. Early 2004 saw them thrust into the limelight, picking up the national support for US heavyweights Incubus, playing at The Entertainment Centre, Rod Laver Arena, etc, to crowds of 20,000 in a week. Since that time the band has played as many shows as possible, everywhere and anywhere in order to develop their craft further.

The band has also taken a similar approach to their recording. Aware that they’ll only get one shot at a debut and really wanting to ‘get it right’, they have resisted the urge to rush in.

Instead Modular Lounge have focussed on improving their musicianship and also sought outside help, enlisting Dave “Duck” Barraclough and Andrew Beck (whose production credits include No Doubt, Grinspoon, Epicure and Mental As Anything) to produce their album. The result is an exceptionally strong debut album which is currently in the final stages of being recorded and will be released in July 2006.

The Modular Lounge debut EP ‘Four Songs’ was released in July 2005 through MGM, and includes the single ‘That Night’. The EP received strong radio support from community stations around the country.

While the finishing touches are being made to the album, the band is using the interim to play every venue they can possibly get their guitars into. Over the last 12 months they have clocked up over 60 shows touring and playing with the likes Magic Dirt, The Whitlams, Missy Higgins, End of Fashion, Thirsty Merc, Fur Patrol, The Red Riders, Sarah McLeod, theredsunband, 67 Special & The Mess Hall.
