Tessa & The Typecast

Tessa & The Typecast are a co-ed five piece hailing from Melbourne.  Part Florence and The Machine mixed in with some Meg & Dia, equaling some catchy indie pop tunes.  The band has an interesting dynamic with a piano and cello being rather predominant in their songs.  Tessa & The Typecast ave been making waves through out the world for about a year and a half now, they’ve gotten some Triple J and XFM radio love as well as a one off record deal for their single “Painter”.

Lemons EP

Lemons EP was released in October of 2011, a great representation of what the band is, it pulls from their previous single releases to create a formidable first EP.  Tessa’s voice is rich and a refreshing take on female vocals for an indie act.  Each song is filled with witty, catchy lyrics which fits right in with the poppy instrumentations.  The band has some international dates still on the books, before heading to the US to take part in Sasquatch Festival this May.  With such an affinity for catchy pop melodies, they definitely are an act to keep an ear out for.
