The Pryor Theory
Gorrilaz, gotye, gerling
These two Melbourne kids found each other the old school way - by answering a handwritten note stuck on a noticeboard in a record shop. The rest, as they say, is history. Enjoy their downbeat electronica mixed with gadgets, samples and mellow vocals.

The Pryor Theory are the winners of our Big Day Out VIC competition. more about this competition »
Describe your music ...
... decks 'n' drums 'n' rock 'n' roll! Chilled beats, soulful
vocals, and lots of bass. Can you ever have too much bass?
What is your pre-live show routine?
Stressing about what small yet crucial part of our
rig we've left at home until we find it at the bottom of a bag or case or phone a friend for a replacement.
Who on the Big Day Out line-up will you be stage front and centre for?
If we weren't playing at the same time, we'd be in
the Hot House at 11am sharp to see our buddies Miso!
Rage Against the Machine and Bjork cannot be missed.
Also looking forward to Midnight Juggernauts, Grrilla Step, Arcade Fire, and Dizzee Rascal!
What is something no-one knows about The Pryor Theory?
We actually paid full price for 'In Rainbows'.
What's the best advice you've been given and who was it from?
Start out slow and speed up as you go. Practice,
practice, practice, and more practice. Never stop practicing what it is you want to be good at - DJ Kuya.
Where do you rehearse?
Midian in Richmond and Caulfield Music.
What have you got planned for the future?
Plan A: Finishing tracks for our debut LP. That's
the whole plan at this stage. There is no Plan B.
Australian music is ...
... far too awesome to encapsulate in a single answer! Sounding fresher and more inspiring than ever. Saturated with festivals (which can only be a good thing right?) and popping at the seams with awesome signed and unsigned talent.
