Latitude 30 ( 512 San Jacinto)
About: Following a series of internet based interactions between 2007 and 2008, the three-piece decided to meet face-to-face in the spring of 2008 in order to explore their bordering on obsessive ideas of how electronic and analogue instrumentation could collide, fuse and synergise within a live setting. Combining this obsession with their shared first love of the movie Jurrasic Park, the band began performing live as Nedry throughout the latter half of 2008. During this period, as a two-piece, they developed a distinctive sound, setting the foundation for vocalist Okakita's return to the band in early 2009. Having spent Christmas in her native Japan, Okakita arrived back in her adopted home town of London with a desire to push Nedry's style into new, exciting directions, applying her voice both lyrically and as a looped instrument that would intertwine with the tri-polar spasms of the band's downtempo but occasionally noisy electro-neurotic sound.
