Modular Lounge formed in Sydney around 2004.  The band were a four-piece with sisters Sophie and Greer Turner sharing guitars and vocals. They did hundreds of shows playing everywhere from venues on stages made out of milk crates, to performing in front of over 8000 people at the Entertainment Centre.  Their music has been described as everything from melodic pop to indie rock. The unique qualities of siblings harmonising is a dramatic contrast to their crunching interweaving guitars. Modular Lounge released their first single Martin Place (taken from their debut album) on September 16th (2006). Martin Place was given Release of the Week on iTunes on September 12th, and the clip was added to Channel V where it is received strong support from viewers. The bands debut album 'nightwise' was produced by Dave 'Duck' Barraclough and Andrew Beck (whose production credits include Grinspoon, Epicure and Mental As Anything). The band received both a Contemporary Music Touring Grant and a grant from MusicNSW (to tour remote regional NSW) to get them around the country. They have played with the likes of Magic Dirt, The Whitlams, Missy Higgins, End of Fashion, Red Riders, Thirsty Merc, Fur Patrol, Sarah McLeod, 67 Special & The Mess Hall.
