I Am Austin are Adam Hughes - a bass player with an amp setup so filthy it should have an 18 rating attached to it, and David Mitchell - a drummer/vocalist who hits his kit so ferociously, you’d think it would have somehow wronged him in the past! A two piece, with some freshly squeezed electro synth to boot. I Am Austin describe themselves as "The world's smallest band, with the biggest noise" - a mixture of future blues, dance, rock, and garage-punk. They hail from Connah's Quay in North Wales, achieving many great things in such a short space of time - such as tour support for Noisettes, and making their debut television appearance on Channel 4's “Evo Music Rooms” (alongside the likes of Graham Coxon, Darwin Deez and Bombay Bicycle Club). They also performed at Radio 1's Big Weekend in 2010, with an absolutely breathtaking performance that Radio 1's Huw Stevens described as "Vicious and amazing!" With powerhouse songs such as "Stripper" and "L.A.F.S", this small (but perfectly formed), stunningly different electro, dance, rock duo have managed to create something unique - producing a sound that merges the sexiness of rock 'n' roll, with the dirtiness of drum and bass.
