The Octopus Project - Wrong Gong

The Octopus Project has been releasing joyous party music since 2002, following a musical path that veers through blown-out rock’n’roll, vibrant electronics, surreal pop and expansive psych landscapes. All these complimentary/contrasting elements have been packed into their sixth and latest album -- 2017's 'Memory Mirror.'

Also active as composers for video games and film, they were awarded the Special Jury Award for Musical Score at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival for their work on the film 'Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter.' 2018 is shaping up to be a busy year for the band with a Deluxe Reissue of their 2007 fan-favorite album, 'Hello, Avalanche,' and the premiere of their newest score for the film 'Damsel,' directed by the Zellner Bros. -- starring Robert Pattinson & Mia Wasikowska -- already garnering rave reviews at the Sundance & Berlinale Film Festivals.
