Maybe it was being born at the dawn of the ’90s, straight into the dead heart of low-income suburban Australia. Or perhaps it was coming of age at a time when music was becoming ever more contrived. Whatever it was, something caused Tamlyn Magee to become a constant turner-over of stones. A soul in search of lost meaning and unexpected delight.
Her trio Anactoria is the natural extension of that tendency. A cinematic sound anchored by a haunting harp that seems to transcend time and space, and fearless vocals that dare to go to the farthest and most enchanted of places.
Featuring Megan Bernard (Yothu Yindi, Liz Stringer) pouring out her liquid guitar tones and golden backing vocals, and four-time ARIA nominee Kalju Tonuma manning the hybrid drum kit and synth bass, Anactoria has arrived on a sound it can truly call its own, but one that demands to be shared.
