Fresh from their debut European/UK tour, Melbourne-based neo-gypsy duo The Imprints have had an amazing year.

Performing at festivals including Glastonbury, Edinburgh Fringe, Beat Herder and Small World, their two-and-a-half-month overseas tour also saw them perform their own shows throughout the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Belgium and the UK. Highlights of the tour included performing to a packed crowd on a rooftop bar in Berlin as the sun set behind them and a super-high-energy set at Small World Festival in the UK.

The-Imprints-Since the Imprints have returned to Australia they have ventured to the Daintree to perform in the rainforest at Wallaby Creek Festival and toured down the east coast playing at Nimbin Roots Festival.

Response to the Imprints has been growing and gaining momentum as they continue touring their way across the world! Featuring the well-known Melbourne musicians Willow on violin and Linden on drums, the Imprints create a sound that is both light and dark, uplifting and menacing.

A magical illusion that suggests a much bigger band.

Willow seduces the listener with her violin drawing forth the sounds of double bass, guitar and dubs as she builds the sound with her loop station while Linden provides the percussive thread that completes the Imprints’ unique sound.

The Imprints have been busy in the studio recording new tracks for a re-release of their debut EP Reflections, which is being transformed into a ten-track album.

See them at The Rails in Byron Bay on Thursday January 16, and the Treehouse on Belongil, Byron Bay on Wednesday January 22.
