Yves Klein Blue Brisbane, Australia Yves Klein Blue came to national attention after winning the 2007 MTV Kickstart band competition in early 2007. They won the top prize over more than 800 bands across Australia and New Zealand, and scored a spot on the popular television show The Lair, and a $20,000 cash injection. The band is made up of lead singer Michael Tomlinson, guitarist Charles Sale, bassist Sean Cook and drummer Chris Banham, and has become a strong addition to the Australian music scene forming in May 2006. “Their musical influences are impossible to ignore – they have an obvious affinity for lo-fi Brit Pop, most notably that of The Libertines, but they avoid the pitfalls of mimicking those that came before them, instead forging their own style.” FastLouder Yves Klein Blue have proved themselves on and off stage and have developed an international flavor combining Brit-pop with a soulful classic flair ala Frank Sinatra to provide a fresh sound. 2007 has seen Yves Klein Blue work their way up the live ladder having supported Ben Kweller’s sold out Brisbane show, The Veils, The Dears, Sparkadia and 1990s to name just a few. In addition to these fantastic supports, Yves Klein Blue also took advantage of a spot at the Annual Q Music Big Sound Artist Showcases, and will be ending year with a performance at the Round & Round festival along side Midnight Juggernauts. They have toured the East Coast of Australia and can’t stop making new fans in every city. Australian media have also fallen hard for the band, supporting them at every turn including the very popular taste maker YEN magazine. They are self-starters and have made the most of each and every opportunity presented to them. Having averaged a show a week over the past 12 months, 2008 looks like it can only get bigger and better for Yves Klein Blue! http://www.myspace.com/yveskleinbluemusic
