On the Record: The Albums that Shaped .gif


Fresh off a recent physical re-release of their dark and sensual EP Saudade, along with an appearance on our Bandwagon festival bus recently, electronic duo .gif are currently set for bigger things as they've been selected as one of two local acts to join the sprawling and acclaimed line-up of 2015's Laneway Festival. Made up of vocalist weish and producer Din, the duo has been captivating audiences over the years through several gigs and festivals and now they'll be exposed to an even bigger crowd. Whether or not they'll be debuting new material we've been longing for, we'll only have to wait and see come January 24.

As part of a Laneway special for our new column On the Record, which we debuted with post-hardcore band Caracal, we asked .gif about the albums that have inspired them over the years. We also learn that they were big on Eminem in secondary school and were scared of classical music when they were young. Also, guess who loves Avril Lavigne's first album? But then again, who doesn't?
