inuette are a London-based collective of five members made up of three relocated Australians and two native Londoners, who have just digitally released their debut self-produced album 'Wildrooster' last week.
The band, who formed early last year (prior to which they were a studio project duo between the two Australian members, Jess and Cameron), describe themselves as "musically, a bit psychedelic, a lot of fun, and one of us will be singing or shouting roughly half of the time. Think somewhere between Super Furry Animals, Battles and the Crash Bandicoot soundtrack." And if you were wondering about their name, "it comes from taking the word 'Inuit' and making it sound feminine," they tell us. "Although a little later we realised it's also the word 'minuette' without the m. In some ways, we kind of sound like Inuits making minuettes. In some ways..."
Combining standard instruments alongside violin and ukulele, inuette come up with something that is not just a little different and interesting on the alt-psych side, but also with a good feel vibe. Check out the video below to album track 'Grizzlies'.
inuette are: Cameron Sanderson (ukulele, keys, vocals), Jess Porter (bass, synth), Sam Kinsella (guitar), Sophie Calderbank (violin), Jack Gilligan (drums).
