FOOD COURT are one of only a handful of new bands to hit the Sydney scene this year. Many of the guys come from other local bands, but one particular member Cristian Campano is ex front man of the now defunct and one of our favourite Sydney bands of 2011, BETTY AIRS. Cristian continues his trademark sweet casual vocals with his new outfit. Some similar influences from his old band are still there, but with a different pace and a few more flavours thrown in.
FOOD COURT’S strengths are Cristian’s unique vocal style, these guys would definitely go down well on a tour with DAVILA 666 and BLACK LIPS. FOOD COURT are definitely doing something fresh and the next 6 months will be an important one for these guys. A new record full of cool summery hooks and Cristian’s strong melodies should get them more love around Australia and beyond. so keep an eye out.
FOOD COURT are playing the last show of their month-long residency at Canteen in Bondi this Thursday with guests PRETEND EYE. So get down there and check it!
