Biography

KUČKA is the avant-electronic project of producer/vocalist Laura Jane Lowther, who records and produces all of the music from found sounds and analog synths from her bedroom studio in Perth.  After performing at Quartz Music Awards in Paris, being sampled by the New York Rapper A$AP Rocky, being named in the top five under-the-radar Australian bands by The Guardian, and securing a slot on stage at Laneway Festival, 2013 has already been a huge year for her.

Laura’s vocal abilities have also been recognised internationally as after initially sampling her track I for A$AP Rocky’s hit single Long Live A$AP, Rocky asked Laura to sing backing vocals on both Long Live A$AP and also Fashion Killa.  Both of these tracks appear on his debut album, which charted at No 1 on the Us Billboard Charts.

2012 saw the release of KUČKA‘s self-titled EP on Wood & Wire with one of the tracks Polly(serialkillersundays) winning a WAM Song of the Year Award in the experimental category. KUČKA also colloaborated with accomplished filmmaker Julia Ngeow to create an unusually surreal – anime inspired filmclip for the track Rewind.

Recently released, is another collaboration between KUČKA and Ngeow for her latest track Phantasy, filmed with a $400 budget and with just four days of pre-production, the clip is a testament to the creativity and ingenuity of KUČKA and her collaborators.

The Best Australian Bands You’ve Never Heard Of - off-kilter experimental electronica from one Laura Jane Lowther’s solo bedroom project turned ambitious, post-dubstep live act”
The Guardian

“a post-dubstep miasma of deep bass, electric flickers, mutant samples and shifting time signatures … The influences flitter around, the combinations new and entrancing and her own personality stamped onto the whole in a way that establishes her own, individual and exciting voice”
Cyclic Defrost

“intent on eschewing normal notions of electro pop, instead trying to colour the furtive outer regions, neither aggressive nor reticent; neither glossy nor gritty. These arrangements expand and contract like a psychotropic headswell; Alice In Wonderland in cyberpunk sound-byte form. Tying it all together is Lowther’s plinking vocals, somewhere between Deerhoof’s Satomi Matsuzaki and Alison Goldfrapp, a skittish yet ominous mist, a dark seduction threatening to swallow you whole.”
Sonic Masala

“If you’ve seen her live or heard her on radio you’ll know that Kučka – indelicate pseudonym for the delicate looking Laura Jane Lowther – gets every note right in her particular take on dark, glitchy electronica. They’re complex compositions, with her unbelievably smooth, crystalline (and slightly disturbing) voice woven all the way through.”
The Thousands

“…the debut EP by kučka might well be one of the most intriguing and ambitious releases by a Perth artist I’ve encountered”
Life is Noise

“with abstract minimalism that would surely see her a comfortable fit on the Warp label, kučka’s debut EP leads in with Rewind, the kind of spartan electonica that rewards a decent pair of headphones and a darkened room.”
Drum Media

“The music’s synthetic sheen veils a sinister undercurrent which only surfaces occasionally in sudden, violent bursts. Lowther is a master of delaying these extroverted moments, at stretching out an uneasy calm until breaking point. It is this play between the suggestion of violence and its realisation that gives the EP its unique dynamic.”
X-Press Mag

“skillfully combines the electronic with the organic, and the pretty with the (slightly) menacing … strange and beautiful”
Bandcamp Hunter

“An artist of true vision, that tip toes through an eccentric, eclectic, electronic and experimental void of musical colours”
The Holding Pattern
