Formed in late 2018 with members spanning from a number of different bands across Melbourne’s diverse music scenes, Hydra Fashion Week have quickly established themselves as a lightning-rod live band from a handful of shows, described by the Music as “indescribable” and “unbelievable”. Manic and tightly-wound, they splutter a sound known colloquially as “jazzy-cyber-punk”.
Hydra Fashion Week find connections between no-wave jazz, punk and commercial pop music you didn’t want to exist. Their songs are about life in a post-digital age. Relationships to the internet. Cyborg feminism. Extinction.
