Australia + New Zealand July 2023
Handsome Tours & Astral People are pleased to present the return of 100 gecs this July!
100 gecs, the duo Laura Les and Dylan Brady, planted their flag on the proverbial pop culture moon with the release of the 2019 debut album 1,000 gecs. The innovative album captivated online fan forums and music literati alike with The New York Times calling it, “some of the savviest pop music of the year,” and Rolling Stone dubbing it “one of 2019’s most exciting debuts.” The years that followed saw the St. Louis natives go from unlikely SoundCloud cult heroes to show-stopping wizard-cloaked pied pipers, covering magazines and selling out concerts across the globe.
With the arrival of their long awaited sophomore album, 10,000 gecs, in March 2023, 100 gecs appear yet again to be two steps ahead of the curve on the ever-molting pop music landscape. Vulture praised the “intangible and ineffable” sound of the album calling it “high concept pop” and fittingly Pitchfork called it “a perfect outro album for the end of the world” while dubbing it ‘Best New Music’ in their review. Equipped with stadium-sized anthems like “Dumbest Girl Alive” and “Hollywood Baby” the 10x sized album is road-ready as the band ventures out on their world tour this year.
A vibrant sensory overload, the duo comes costumed (so does the crowd!) and equipped with instruments you may not have seen to make sounds you may not have heard. After making their debut earlier this year, 100 gecs returns to Australia exclusively for Splendour in the Grass this winter as well as a headline performance in Auckland, bringing an unequivocally fun and carefree spirit that can’t help but be contagious.
