Phoebe Avenue is a multi-disciplinary artist with a broad creative scope that spans across design, art, craft, and music. Avenue’s most notable project is Hi. Ok, Sorry. - an experimental electronic duo from Perth, Australia. Using analogue synthesisers as performance tools, the duo creates mesmerising rhythmic tracks with an immersive presence.
Hi. Ok, Sorry. resist a formalist approach to music, taking a conceptual approach, they create sounds from narratives, texture and feeling. Each performance is unconstrained, unique, and never to be repeated. Their debut EP, a self-titled 2 track tape, was released in 2017 through Pouring Dream Records. Eucalypt Music described their debut as “a refreshing take on analogue synthesis [that] truly sounds like nothing else right now.” Their second release for 2017 featured in a compilation cassette tape by Ken Oath Records.
Hi. Ok, Sorry have performed at many festivals and special events such as WAMfest, Kickstart Youth Festival, Fremantle Festival, North Freo Pub Crawl, and WOMPP’s Monthly Artist Showcase. In the local arts and music scene they contribute to experimental music nights such as IMprov hosted by Tura New Music, Outcome Unknown, VOLTA, and often perform at poetry events.
Live shows in 2017-2018 saw the duo support artist such as Feels, Nosaj Thing (USA), Jacob Diamond, Leafy Suburbs, Sage Pbbt and Boat Show and played alongside acts such as Erasers, Stella Donnelly, Carla Geneve, Lana Rothnie and Michael Strong.
To give back to the community they have helped raise money to support organisations such as The Patricia Giles Foundation, Ishar Multicultural Women's Health Centre and Homeless Healthcare Fremantle. With plans to record new releases for 2020 the duo continue to develop their live performances and create fresh sounds for their audiences.
