Re:Enactment

Official Website - http://www.re-e.net RE:Enactment are the anti-fast food of the Brisbane electro scene. Raw and visceral their music means something to them, and they want it to mean something to you too. They have worked their guts out to bring you a preview double-A side from their forthcoming debut album due in Autumn 2011. The single 'Problematic' sees the band at their put-your-handbags-down-and-dance best. The contrasting slow burn of 'Nintendogs' invokes day old red wine, lino floors and past mistakes in equal measure

So far they have defended the belittled blue collar worker from Kanye West's "Gold Digger," told Gerry and the Pacemakers that in fact it is okay to walk alone, dumped the manipulative Martha Reeves on behalf of poor Jimmy Mack and taken the misguided instructions of a 17th century ballad to its logical conclusion.
