Over the last five years Australia has had a knack for churning out fantastic musicians and creators of sound; just think about the likes of Pnau, San Cisco, Gold Fields, Strange Talk, Cut Copy and then you get an idea of how rich the island's music scene is. The unsigned Melbourne-based duo of Laura Boland and Andy Liddell can join that reputable list for spearheading the often neglected electro-funk, disco-centric genre. The fledgling pair have a fascinating air of mystery between them simply because little is known about these two in the UK. Drawn together out of a mutual indulgence for brassy disco beats and voluptuous dance mannerisms, Back Back Forward Punch have a busy year ahead; with the release of their latest single "Zero To Disco" being the first in a line of new cuts it promises to be an exciting period for one of Melbourne's finest exports. Their latest single instantly pushes you into a world of honeycomb keys and house-funk swirls that act as the perfect catalyst in driving this disco number onwards with enthusiastic zest. Robotic echoes natter away in the background amongst a rock solid series of beats and granite bass line interludes between each thumping chorus as Boland delivers a beautiful and harmonic vocal performance. The vibrant synth-scapes of Liddell unleash a flurry of sound that makes this a magmatic slab of disco-electro menace. It beckons you to the dancefloor and who could resist such an offer.

Check out the fantastic "Zero To Disco" below then tell us what you think and leave us a comment. Be sure to visit the duo's Soundcloud too for any future releases.
