Topology’s lush music for strings, piano and sax has been driving music creativity in Australia for 2 decades. In celebration of their 20th anniversary, the Brisbane-based quintet have released their 14th full-length album.
In Tortured Remixes, popular melodies are filtered through the creative minds of Topology’s composers. The result: iconic tunes stretched, bent and scrambled (almost) beyond recognition, then reassembled into adventurous new works for strings, piano and saxophone.
Featuring reconstructions of The Saints, MC Hammer, The Beatles, Stevie Wright, Beyonce, Cold Chisel and many more, Tortured Remixes is a mixtape tribute to the 60’s up to the present like you’ve never heard them before.
"The journey of Tortured Remixes is an introspective one, encouraging us to re-examine our own relationships to popular music." Kill Your Darlings
"Half the fun of this record is spotting the references for yourself, wandering through the half-familiar phrases and rhythms looking for some tiny shred of recognition to unlock the puzzle that each track is." 4ZZZ
"Brisbane quintet Topology have picked apart and restitched some well-known songs into the aural equivalent of Frankenstein’s monster." Courier Mail
"Brisbane should not only be proud of them as a home-grown success story, but embrace any opportunity they can to see their sometimes-warped but always wonderful work." Blue Curtains Brisbane
