Perth based electronic duo Fourth State Turiya are a collaboration between vocalist/songwriter Leah Miche and producer/composer Edoardo Moriconi.
Forming in early 2018 they have effortlessly produced a timeless indie, electro, trip hop sound reminiscent of 90’s trip hop artists such as Lamb, Massive Attack and Bonobo.
Performing with a combination of sequencers, analogue synthesisers, live guitar, loop’s and Ableton live, FST’s live show is a captivation journey creating simple yet expansive landscapes emphasising on dynamic’s and simplicity rather that pop hooks and rushed arrangements.
Combining Edoardo’s experience and refined skill in electronic production with Leah’s indie/folk singer/songwriter background, FST focus on intertwining conscious lyrical content and ancient Sanskrit mantras creating an ethereal and organic sound.
After the release of their debut single ‘Sink Or Swim’ in late 2018 FST have gained a lot of attention in their home town of Perth, WA and nationally throughout Australia.
After receiving airplay on national radio stations Triple J and Double J, in 2019 the duo were invited to support Montaigne on her national tour and also performed at the annual ‘Groovin The Moo Festival’ in Bunbury, NYE Fest ‘Wild campout’ and Nannup Music Festival 2019/21/22.
To date FST have release 6 singles and a EP and have had the tracks ‘Lost In Dreams’, ‘Flourish’ and 'Highs Lows' nominated for a 2019, 2020 and 2021 WAM song of the year in the electronic category.
Along with regular single releases FST have been branching out of their genre and are currently designing soundscapes for live yoga classes and ecstatic dance events - more info on that in the SOUNDSCAPES tab.
