A G E N D E R - 'Modern Lovers'

BY Higher Plains | 19-May-2014
Melbourne-by-LA's Agender started out as a solo, lo-fi punk excursion for Romy Hoffman (Macromantics, Romy), and has since morphed into an all girl 3 piece, known for their intense, fast, tight knit punk shows. Agender play a unique blend of schitzo synthy paranoid punk.

The first record Self (en)titled was entirely written, recorded, played and mixed by Romy Hoffman, with additional mixing and mastering by Mikey Young (Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Total Control).

Agender's follow up album Fixations was recorded at Melbourne's Head Gap studio by Casey Rice (Liz Phair, Red Red Meat, The Dirty Three). The opening single/video 'Mani Pedi' was introduced by Noisey back in January and now comes the new track 'Modern Lovers'.

"Trading distortion for a synth pop shine, 'Modern Lovers' takes on the modernist tale of cold lovers through a clearer view of production" - Impose Magazine

Fixations was co-produced by Rice and Hoffman. The songs on the record are fixations on, and fetishes with femininity, and explore the desperate/disparate nature of queerness, sexuality and obsessive, dysmorphic desire.

Fixations will be released in Australia on Friday July 18.
