Female fronted 5-piece, Argonaut, were signed by Criminal Records after gaining interest on the London ‘toilet circuit’. The band’s self-titled album, release last week, demonstrates a mix of their rock influences, including Sonic Youth, Garbage, Hole and The Pixies. From the guitar led grunge of tracks like ‘Touch Electric’ to the stripped back sounds of tracks like ‘Chemistry’, the album represents a band who are not afraid to experiment with their sound and emotions. Argonaut’s next music video ‘More Life’ depicts the band walking through dimensions in search of a second shot at life.
"Argonaut are one of the best bands I've come across in 2012" 9.5/10 Steve, Street Voice UK
"Pretty good! Kind of remind me of the Cranberries meets Joy Formidable!" Natasha Grant, Art Rocker
"A beautiful sound to open up the show with. An oldskool, indie sound - the kind you don’t hear much these days, delicate floating female vocals – really liked that!" Dave Gilyeat, BBC Introducing
‘It’s sparse – but i like that!’ Steve Lamacq, 6 music
"Sleazy rock falling somewhere between Royal Trux and Bikini Kill. Promising. 4/5" Club NME, Brighton
"driving tormented fuzzy- post-rocky sounds with moments of dirgy downbeat melody with Lorna’s preoccupied vocal echoing almost as if from the bottom of a lake covered in jagged winter frost." Gordon Johnston, Glasswerk
‘Argonaut put forward a good case for being brilliant…sounds like Siouxsie And The Banshees…their commitment to youth, ideas and passion should be lauded and rewarded’ NME
