Sounds impressive: Architects’ new show will leave you feeling Rough, Red and Raw

Brisbane’s self-proclaimed ‘best band in the world’, The Architects of Sound are bringing an out-of-the-box experience to West End’s Metro Arts Theatre, combining electro-pop bangers, unhinged visuals and sensual choreography with side-splitting comedy.

Gracing the Metro Arts stage for one night only on Thursday, Rough, Red and Raw will preview songs from The Architects of Sound’s second album ARTFAP, creating an intimate scratchwork earworm extravaganza that is not to be missed.

The Architects of Sound will take you on a live and loose journey through their trademark deadpan comedy, bangin’ beats and seductive dance moves.

The heart-pounding production features Sarah Stafford, Sampson Smith, and David Stewart, who together will bring a radical, raunchy and ridiculously entertaining performance to Metro Arts’ New Benner Theatre.
