The Australian electronic duo Hermitude have described their music as “hip-hop electronica with a hint of demented R&B.”
• Luke Dubber and Angus Stuart have been creating music together since childhood. Their first band, Funk Injections, was a family affair, with Stuart’s sister on bass.
• Alleys to Valleys, their first album as Hermitude, arrived in 2003. Their breakthrough came nearly a decade later with their fourth album, 2012’s HyperParadise, a Top 40 hit in their home country that earned them an Australian Music Prize. Australian DJ and producer Flume further boosted the duo’s popularity by remixing the track “HyperParadise.”
• Hermitude’s 2015 fifth album, Dark Night Sweet Light, topped Australian charts. The future bass single “The Buzz” became the duo’s first Top 20 Australian hit.
• Typically known for instrumental music, Hermitude enlisted rapper Vic Mensa, German American singer Bibi Bourelly, and other vocalists for the 2019 album Pollyanarchy.
