The Shocking and Stunning

Electro Doom, (NZ)

The Shocking and Stunning were Jack Hooker (synths/sampler/effects) and Sam Lovrich-FitzPatrick (drums). Described in VanguardRed Magazine as “emotive, physically propulsive and above all, fuxking epic”, they combine densely layered synths and live drums to make wall-of-sound music that sits between dance, trance, noise and drone.

The Shocking and Stunning were most active between 2010-2014. In that time they released six EPs, a music video, scored a documentary, collaborated with rappers Tourettes and Name UL, toured numerous times throughout New Zealand and Australia, performed at festivals such as Camp A Low Hum and Rhythm and Alps, and played many house parties.

Since 2014 the band have made sporadic appearances, playing at festivals such as Chronophonium, The Performance Arcade and A Gathering in the Forest. In 2019 they made a surprise one-off return, releasing their long-overdue debut full-length album. The self-titled album contains new works, as well as older pieces that have been reworked and rerecorded with James Goldsmith at Bluebarn Studios.

This year their much awaited re-emergence is coming for the live stage at Twisted Frequency Festival.
