about

Equally influenced by the complex pop melodies of Joni Mitchell and the cut-n-paste aesthetic of Cornelius or The Books, Setec (the moniker of Sydney-based solo artist Joshua Gibbs) is a musical attempt to blend the organic with the synthetic; to meld the fleeting flickers of the past with nostalgia for a future that is yet to pass.

On his debut full-length, Setec combines found-sound percussion with looped acoustic instruments, long-forgotten samples and cascading vocal layers to create a unique and compelling album.

Brittle As Bones is a joyous, intimate affair; brief yet fulfilling, honest and heartfelt.
