Psychedelic electric jams, punctuated by drum machines, acoustic percussion and waves of synth, Sydney’s Holy Balm bring their minimalist dance music to the Live Delay stage, ripping it up in front of a packed house at 4ZZZ’s Get Happier Fest back in August 2012.

Four Door describe themselves in four words – techno, synths, creeps, bleeps. And I guess that’s a very accurate although simplistic description of the group’s housey weirdness.

Four Door are actually Jonathan Hochman and Matthew Hopkins, two dudes from Sydney who are fond of things electronic. You might recognise Hochman from his duties with Sydney trio, Holy Balm, whereas Hopkins plays in Naked On The Vague.

Four Door have played with the likes of Blank Realm, The Garbage and The Flowers and New War, but came up to Brisbane in October last year to play the Lost Race Festival at the Cooparoo Bowls Club in the city’s inner south.
