Love Thy Neighbour: Cherax Destructor - <3

Wednesday 10th April, 2013 11:41AM

Here is our latest installment of new weekly feature Love Thy Neighbour where Australian blog Who The Hell introduces us to interesting artists from across the ditch. This week it's Cherax Destructor aka Sydney based Patch Hutley and his track '<3'...

Cherax Destructor may be the fancy name given to the Australian freshwater yabby, but meet your new favourite (human) Cherax Destructor: singer/producer Patch Hutley.

The Sydney-based musician is pretty much Australia’s answer to Baths. If you’re unfamiliar with Baths’ sound, think atmospheric, squelchy beats with electronic hooks aplenty. Hutley dropped his ‘Objects In Space’ EP in October last year, but it’s his new material that has reeled us in (which you can find scattered across his various music and social media pages).

The adventurous ‘<3’ is jam-packed with fiddly samples and joyful melodies – all chopped up and twisted into one another. His songs generally move from instrumental hip hop to collaged IDM beats and tricks. Although he’s labelled his sound on his Soundcloud page as ‘friendship-hop’, it’s also bang on, as his songs are as warm and cuddly as good friendships generally get.
