Remote Control Records in partnership with triple j, Select Music and Dot Dash are thrilled to announce the Australian Tour for Melbourne associates Client Liaison. The tour follows last year’s release of their critically acclaimed debut album Diplomatic Immunity.
Harvey Miller AO and Monte Morgan’s early shows as Client Liaison, around Melbourne at house parties and warehouse gigs, communicated an ineffable musical connection between the two former art school kids. Quickly the collaboration took on a life of its own. With Harvey mostly behind the keyboard, occasionally coming forward for a high-five or a particularly vehement fist pump, and Monte out the front, singing in a voice that climbs higher and higher, before disappearing momentarily offstage, only to reappear in a whole new ensemble of clothing. The spectacle of their performances has always been as visual as it is auditory. This is a musical sensibility that has evolved into a more holistic aesthetic mission.
2016 saw this mission venture further with ambition, having released their own high-casual beach wear fashion range. Coral and reef coloured rashies, towels and budgie smugglers continue to adorn the bodies of many for a summer they are unlikely to ever forget. With their portfolio now diversified, the band continue to enhance the Client Liaison experience and this time turn to their live performance. The live show will boast an updated office fit-out to complement their oversized water coolers, including reception desk and a Macintosh Power Mac 6100, all packed down to an efficient 34 road-cases. More than ever this is a show that reflects the identity of a band who is both international in flavour and cosmopolitan in style.
Client Liaison extend a special welcome to their newly appointed Ambassador For Future Funk, Adelaide’s Luke Million. Coming off the back of huge international success with his extended Stranger Things Remix, the synth lord will be touring with Client Liaison across the whole Diplomatic Immunity Tour.
Having soundtracked your summer Falls Festival and Field Day, Client Liaison return to tour DiplomaticImmunityin March and April 2017.
This tour is a fantasy. Which is what makes it true. Coming to a city near you.
