Ever since I met up with them in Australia last year, I have been obsessed with Operator Please. Can't wait to see them again at South by Southwest next week. Hailing from Brisbane, Operator Please is the teaming of vocalist and guitarist Amandah Wilkinson, drummer Tim Commandeur, keyboardist Chris Holland, bassist Ashley McConnell and violinist Taylor Henderson.
Together they bring a slick and tight mesh of crunchy, new wave-ish pop and stylish rock with steady indie sensibilities. Think Alphabeat meets The Gosspip meets The Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Very photogenic band with all the right chops to do well outside of Australia.
Their sophomore album “Gloves” is out in the U.S. now and I highly suggest you pick it up. Grab the sleek and minimal Slim remix of their new single "Catapult" now totally guilt-free. (Shout to HP and Beats Audio for sponsoring my trek to South by Southwest.)
