PREMIERE: Step Into Tetrahedra’s Art-Pop Genesis On ‘I Wouldn’t Mind’


Tetrahedra made music that crosses all borders—it’s intriguing and intelligent in its bright art-pop coating. Their music is a living, breathing organism that collects its moving parts into a vibrant and transparent artistic movement. I Wouldn’t Mind is their latest and is currently being premiered on AAA Backstage exclusively before its release later this week.

Much like a well-oiled machine, Tetrahedra are flawless in their delivery. Interchanging between the natural and synthetic, the group’s unique approach to acoustic and electronic music is a step far beyond what Little Dragon have been trying to achieve for years. I Wouldn’t Mind is a pop song at heart, but a stimulating and unique psychedelic experience which needs no labels. The track is a true “headphone listen.” There are minute details within all the crevices, patterns and manipulated vocal effects—each sound, as diverse and untested as they are, add amazing texture to their overall sound.

I Wouldn’t Mind is yet another unique taster of Tetrahedra’s sophomore EP ‘SOMA’. The band, of course, are making it a visual EP—engaging both sound and motion into a highly refreshing and entirely different AV experience. ‘SOMA’, meaning ‘the parts of an organism other than the reproductive cells.’ Collaborations with visual artists to the like of Isabella Connelley, Prue Stent and Honey Long with Tetrahedra’s off-kilter sound parallels no other. The EP’s creation has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts.

Tetrahedra will be launching I Wouldn’t Mind and their new EP ‘SOMA’ in early March at a very special headline show. Supports come from Melbourne art-pop mainstayers, Blyolk and Hemm.
