Age of Consent (band) new article content ...
Age of Consent are Joe Reeves and Darren Cullen, former members of Shitdisco. They make dark, dystopian gothic-pop influenced by bands and production duos such as The Big Pink, Suicide and Yeasayer.
Their debut single “The Beach” was recorded in a 16th century Italian farmhouse with producer Luke Smith who has previously worked with Depeche Mode, Foals and Crystal Fighters. Directed by Gareth Phillips (Cat's Eyes, Is Tropical) the video references the French Situationist movement and their idea; “Sous le paves. la plage” / “Beneath the pavement, the beach”. Drawing upon dream-like imagery, it explores the desire to escape from normality. 
In only a few months of playing live, Age of Consent have taken their percussive live show to Italy and Austria. They have played with The Drums, Fiction, Is Tropical, Koudlam & Tiga.
