Neon Nights Show #069 “Infraghosts Interview”

“Here I am, take what you must…”

InfraGhosts is the audiovisual project of Melbourne trans new media artist Laura Davis. Her work combines new-wave inspired synthpop, dance-heavy drum machines and stirring vocals with live glitch aesthetic video art. 80’s synth hardware meet with a modern alternative dance dynamic for a sound that blends Depeche Mode with Hot Chip.
Tune in to hear Laura talk all about her track “Moment Of Trust”, how she got started in the music biz and what the future holds for Infraghosts.

In a wonderful spirit of generosity, Laura kindly donated a knife to JOY949. She commented “It’s my way of saying thanks to the community stations who support me. I always like to leave each station a personal gift.” This rather lovely utenstil also has an etching which was made by Laura herself using some arcane techniques, which I vaguely remember from when I went to trade school (hint – I think it’s etching ;).

But wait there's more! Listen to Infraghosts and we include this lovely steak knife.

Moment Of Trust EP is OUT NOW!


Melbourne new-wave inspired audiovisual synthpop artist Infra Ghosts has announced their Moment
of Trust EP launch. The debut release will be unveiled on Saturday November 19, 2016 at
nightclub and video arcade Forgotten Worlds, 113 Johnston Street, Collingwood.
The Moment of Trust EP will launch with a night of tight-and-heavy synth bangers, smoke
machines, lasers, and live circuit-bent video art, occurring as part of Forgotten World’s monthly
synth night Laser Highway. Infra Ghosts said the night will reflect a reimagined ’80s future in sound
with the EP made available in both limited edition cassette and digital download form.
The launch is Laura Davis’ first EP as an openly transgender artist. ‘I’m reluctantly letting go, I’m
ready to show what I’ve got–it’s a hopeless drop from a cliff. It’s my moment of trust, but it’s also a
party’, she said. The EP is establishing a community radio presence with airplay on Triple R, 3CR,
and JoyFM.
Infra Ghosts will be joined by immersive solo synth and visual art performer CVES and veteran
synthwave DJ Zerotonine. Laser Highway is Australia’s only dedicated synth night and a free event.
