Body Type patched themselves together in Sydney in 2016 and found they each contained pieces that perfectly complemented one another’s. They soon set about articulating their ideas through jangling guitars and scuzzy, lo-fi production, and found that audiences at home in and around the country were eager to get sucked in.
Following the debut release of ‘EP1’ in late 2018 and the sophomore ‘EP2’ both Body Type EPs are now available on vinyl.
Their music so far has received critical acclaim from the likes of the FADER, DIY Mag, NME, KEXP, Beats 1’s Matt Wilkinson, Radio 1’s Jack Saunders, triple j's Declan Byrne and more and it has seen them tour with the likes of Alex Cameron, Courtney Barnett, Frankie Cosmos, Big Thief and Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, to name a few.
In 2019, they played two shows at New York’s Union Pool with Fontaines D.C., embarked on their first SXSW run and completed their first ever hotly-anticipated UK / EU headline tour, including a headline show at London’s Moth club.
LP includes digital download card.
