Years Active 2013 - current
Members Drew Woolley, Shaun Woof
With influence ranging from the carnage of The Birthday Party, the
subtlety of OM, the beauty of Sigur Ros, and the forms of Karlheinz
Stockhausen, Zyklus aim to achieve a distinctly ‘grey’ sound, comprised
of harsh dissonance, raw and minimal instrumentation, embedded melody,
and often violent gestures, all in the context of rather spacious forms.
Lyrically, thematic material can be bleakly evocative, incorporating
opaque metaphor, and reference to the cheerless Mundane, with some level
of black humor.
Shaun Woof and Drew Woolley met on the 296 bus from Perth's Esplanade busport to Kalamunda. After firmly establishing a mutual fascination with the 'diz', Zyklus soon embarked on a spree of formidable gigs throughout Perth.
